Skip Large files in search.
A popup says - Do you want to Open a large file, It may take a long time…
It would be nice to have a check box, that says do this for all files.
I want to skip ALL large files.

I want to skip ALL large files
Whilst I somewhat agree with @Mark-Olson that it won’t be implemented I think that it’s a reasonable request to make. Firstly NPP is offering up a msg so the user can elect to NOT open a large file, that suggests the developer wants to offer an alternative just in case the user selected a big file without realising it. Could that msg also offer up a tick box to say “for all large files”?
As there are other apps which already offer this option, that works 2 ways. Firstly another app which does offer the option, so use it. But then if another app does offer the option, maybe it has been a reasonable request after all (for that app’s developer), so maybe NPP’s developers should consider it also.
In terms of actually getting your request before the developers nose, this isn’t the place. In our FAQ section, read the document called Feature Request or Bug Report which refers you to GitHub.
If you do decide to load the request onto GitHub (checking that none already exist first) please do add another post here linking to that request.
