Add Setting in Preferences | Searching
Could you please add a new setting in the Preferences | Searching screen like:Show Incremental Search at program startup
I frequently use the Incremental Search feature and would like it to be available with every startup of Notepad++ (like when clicking on a file from Windows Explorer).
If its not too much trouble, could you also add this to the Incremental Search bar:Match word
Could you implement it like “Match whole word only” as found in the Find dialog screen.
And one last request, could you get a version working on Linux? ;)
Could you please add a new setting
This is a Community of Notepad++ users. We cannot change the codebase here. See “FAQ: Feature Request”
☐ Show Incremental Search at program startup
It’s not a bad idea, but since Notepad++ remembers a bunch of toggles in the View menu, I’d probably just prefer that Notepad++ just remember whether or not you have Search > Incremental Search active (like it does for remembering the current state of View > Show Symbol > xxx or other View menu toggles).
☐ Incremental Search bar … Match Word
Also a good idea.

That’s been made pretty clear: https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/wiki/FAQ#support-for-systems-other-than-the-ms-windows-family
