Command line



  • How to open two files in notepad++ in different views using command line?

    For example :
    Open C:\temp\input.txt & C:\temp\output.txt using a command line and move the output file to OTHER View

  • Sorry for the misunderstanding…
    I could not found a command-line for that, but you can load Session files…
    A session file is a XML file with this structure:

    <NotepadPlus>
        <Session activeView="1">
            <mainView activeIndex="0">
                <File firstVisibleLine="0" xOffset="0" scrollWidth="288" startPos="0" endPos="0" selMode="0" lang="XML" encoding="-1" filename="C:\file1.xml" backupFilePath="" originalFileLastModifTimestamp="1438295994" />
            </mainView>
            <subView activeIndex="0">
                <File firstVisibleLine="0" xOffset="0" scrollWidth="288" startPos="0" endPos="0" selMode="0" lang="XML" encoding="-1" filename="C:\file2.xml" backupFilePath="" originalFileLastModifTimestamp="1438295994" />
            </subView>
        </Session>
    </NotepadPlus>
    

    Files in “other view” (at right) are inside <subView> tag.
    You can open it with a command-line such as this:
    notepad++.exe -openSession "MySession.xml"
