TextViz - hide lines without clipboard text do not work
Notepad++ v8.4.4 (64bit)
TextViz installed from plugin admin
press the Hide lines without clipboard text will close the application.
Thank you very much for your effort and help.
Unfortuantely, the author of NppTextViz has not updated the plugin in a couple of years. And in the last few months, Notepad++ has updated the interface definition between Plugins and the main application, meaning that NppTextViz is no longer compatible with Notepad++ v8.4. and newer. Convincing the author of that plugin to make an update is the only way to fix the problem.
Alternately, I think the “hide lines” feature was one of the features that TextViz duplicated from TextFX; as such, maybe the NppTextFX2 plugin will work for you – and if it has a problem in the implementation of that specific feature, then you can file a bug report in the NppTextFX2 repository, as that maintainer has been active (at least recently), so might be responsive to requests for fixes. (As compared to plugin authors who seem to have abandoned their plugins a couple years and more than a decade ago, who are likely to ignore all requests for fixes.)
You can simply build it
Well, that assumes some level of skill of the person doing that. Not everyone has that. Especially common in people posting questions on this site.
I really do not understand why someone who has already got necessary skills does not help others and simply give a link to the compiled binaries containing the fix. I have just built both x86 and x64 NppTextViz.dll from Bajron’s commits, confirmed that they work, and uploaded them here for anyone who wants to download them:
Check them with VirusTotal prior to copying to Notepad++ plugin dir if you have any doubts.
If posting such URLs is breaking any rules, please tell me where else I can upload the files.
Have a good one!
