Binary file does not reload with the HEX-editor
I have this problem with the HEX-Edit plugin: when the file is replaced in background, N++ properly detects this and prompts to reload.
But in fact the displayed content is NOT updated.
Even when I do File/Reload from disk, the content is not updated.
Only close & re-open gets the new content displayed.
But with other files (for example text file updated by notepad) all is good.
Anyone else sees this issue?
Not sure is this caused by a specific plugin or “base” N++.
NPP version 8.5.1 and 8.4.9, Hex-edit v. 0.9.12
“base” Notepad++ has no problem with File > Reload From Disk. The symptoms you have described are almost definitely related to the HEX-Edit plugin, not Notepad++ itself. You can try to put in an issue here, but there are a lot of open issues on that plugin, and I won’t guarantee that it will be fixed. (The release history over the last few years seems to focus mostly on “crashes”, not any new features or minor bug improvements.)
