Yet another TextFx feature help request - CSV Column Line Up
I cannot install anymore TextFx but i need a plugin (that really works) for csv column lineup. Any suggestions (either workarounds to install Textfx plugin)?
When you know it’s “yet another TextFx” question, have you considered looking to see if it’s a FAQ? Because it is. And as the “LineUp” entry in that FAQ suggests, Elastic Tabstops plugin might help you line up columns (though it’s been a while since I’ve used it, and I don’t remember if it has that specific column-feature or not).
That said, the FAQ also links you to the NppTextFX2 plugin, where someone took the original TextFX code and made it compatible with Notepad++ v8.4-and-newer (though there might still be one or two features which aren’t working … if you find missing/broken features, file a bug report with the NppTextFX2 repository)
FYI: the plugins CSV Lint (which allows each column to be colored differently, to help visualize columns even without the LineUp feature) and CsvQuery (which makes it easy to search big CSV, if you know SQL syntax) are generally considered useful when working with CSV files as well.
