Comment on FAQ post about 8.5.3 macros
@PeterJones - Something got lost in the before/after formatting of the v8.5.3 macros that you posted at https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org/post/86344 The before and after text looks exactly the same to me.
You also wrote things such as “In Notepad++ v8.5.2 and earlier, if you had a “special character” in your macro or run-menu command – whether it was in the name of the macro/command or in text that it uses – then inside the XML, it would be stored as an XML entity. For example,
☺would be stored as
π.” which don’t make sense to me as
πdisplay the same to me.
I don’t have the rights to reply in the FAQ forum nor see a way to DM you and so will post here.
Ugh. Apparently, like backslash-square-brackets, HTML entities are another thing that NodeBB messes up when you edit a post, because it was right when I first posted it. Fixed. (edit: updated the forum-formatting FAQ to call out that oddity with entities, as well)
Regarding DM: the “chat” feature speech bubble in the upper-right by your icon is the way to do private messages
