NOTEPAD++ does not complete the REPLACE command.

in a text (10MB in size), unwanted characters are to be replaced or deleted by a script. Attached is my Notepad++ info and two examples of my script.
The first script replaces characters in hex mode. e.g. replace 9A with DC. In the second script, whole words are to be replaced. A script always begins with “ADR 000000” so that it is processed from the beginning of the text.
Since the creation of the “errors” in the original text does not follow any special rules, I have to adapt with the script to change the text on my terms. This is not a problem and works very well even with small scripts of 2 to 5 lines.
However, my text to be edited is over 140,000 lines long. I adapted the script with about 90 lines.
It looks as if only 2-3 changes are made at a time, and then further changes are made with a new run (Ctrl. + F9).
This is of course annoying insofar as a one-time run should actually carry out all programmed changes.
Anyone know this symptom?
Here is an excerpt from my SCRIPT
REPLACEALL 9A BY DC
REPLACEALL 45 34 BY 61 65
REPLACEALL 94 BY F6
REPLACEALL 61 F9 BY 61 65
REPLACEALL EF BY 27
REPLACEALL 84 BY E4
REPLACEALL E1 BY DF
REPLACEALL 81 BY FC
REPLACEALLASC Aussen by Außen
REPLACEALLASC aussen by außen
REPLACEALLASC Ausser by Außer
REPLACEALLASC ausser by außer
REPLACEALLASC Schliess by Schließ
REPLACEALLASC schliess by schließ
REPLACEALLASC schlüßel by Schlüssel
REPLACEALLASC schlüssel by Schlüssel

Notepad++ has no builtin scripting that uses syntax like you showed. Are you using a scripting plugin or some other plugin that has its own notion of “scripts”? Or are you running that script through some external language/tool? or was the syntax you showed really just your shorthand for Notepad++ macro language which is stored as XML?
then further changes are made with a new run (Ctrl. + F9).
Ctrl+F9 isn’t mapped to anything in a default instance of Notepad++. That again makes me think that you have a plugin that is doing this for you. Unfortunately, you’ve got a long list of plugins, but none of the names are for any of the scripting languages I know about – if you are using a plugin for this change, please tell us specifically which plugin is giving you the scripting language you showed.
