Probable Bug N++ or Customize Toolbar: - Wrap Toolbar - 2nd (and up) line(s) of the toolbar freezes
I’ve installed the Customize Toolbar plugin in multiple versions of N++.
Also I usually install a bunch of other plugins. They have buttons I can add to the n++ toolbar, customizing it.
Customize Toolbar plugin also allows me to wrap the toolbar buttons in multiple lines so I can see all the buttons at once if their number is higher than n++ and my monitor width can handle in a single line.
The problem is that the second line of buttons freezes, in the sense that if I go for a button on the first line I can click on it to execute the relative command, but if the button is included into the second line (or more) the buttons are not clickable. To make them clickable again I have to run Customize Toolbar dialog and close it right after it shows. Than the buttons on the toolbar 2nd or 3rd line of the n++ toolbar are un-frozen. But the problem is that the “un-frozen status” works for just one click on any of the buttons than te 2nd (and up) line freeze again.
The first line works anyway and never freezes.
I get the same issue in n++ in any version I use Customize Toolbar plugin. I work on Win7 32 bit system.
Anyone else has the same issue?
Here I post an animation of the issue:
Please notice also that I am not able to verify if this is an issue of Notepad++ or of the plug-in itself
I have to say that would be better to have a Customize Toolbar feature directly into N++, without to have the need to install a plugin to allow it.
I work on Win7 32 bit system.
Please note that the developers specifically say that win7 is no longer supported, so even if there were a problem with Notepad++ specifically under Win7, the developers will not address it. The frequent contributors to the Community Forum take their cue from that, and if it really is a Win7 only problem, we will suggest trying on a supported operating system.
if this is an issue of Notepad++ or of the plug-in itself
Since Notepad++ itself doesn’t have a multi-line toolbar feature, I would hazard a guess that the problem lies in the plugin’s implementation, not in Notepad++ itself. But the plugin author or maintainer would be more likely to be able to investigate and addrses such problems. The author might still be watching the project page for new bug reports or discussion, though it’s been a year since those were active, so…
would be better to have a Customize Toolbar feature directly into N++
The Notepad++ developer has decided that such functionality is better implemented in a plugin rather than as part of the core application, and does not often “compete” with actively-maintained plugins.
