Menu has a gap after upgrade to v8.4.4
After upgrading the latest version of notepad ++, I see a huge gap in the main menu items and plugins menu. Not sure how to fix those. Please find that in the pic the red box.
Any help is much appreciated.
Because the plugin you installed violates Notepad++ standards, and instead of putting its menu inside the Plugins Menu where it is expected to, it creates multiple top-level menus. And instead of putting them in a reasonble place, apparently that plugin put its menus two-to-the-left-of the rightmost menu entry.
In older versions of Notepad++, the rightmost two menus were × and ?, so it would have put them to the left of ?. But in the recent Notepad++, there have been two more menus put on the right side, the ▼ and + menus, so that means that now the plugin’s hardcoded n-2 placement will put it between the + and ▼, which means it’s far to the right.
The only way to fix this is to ask the developer of that plugin(s) to create a new version that puts it in a more reasonable location (either look for the ? and do it one to the left of that; or better, convince them to stop abusing the menus and instead put it in the Plugins menu where plugins are expected to put their menus).
You will have to find the About box for the culprit plugin(s), and ask their developer(s) to fix their design.
@PeterJones thanks so much for the information.
