Open a file selecting its name within an opened file



  • Hello,
    I have been using Notepad++ for quite a while now and I just love it.
    I have seen a feature in another file editor that I could not find in Notepad++.
    When working on an opened file in the notepad++ interface, you would select a file name mentioned in the opened file, right click and have a menu Open with the name of the selected file.
    The file filename.css (from the example below) would be located in the same folder as the current file your are working on.

    blablablabla filename.css blablabla

    Would such feature exists or may be plugin?
    Thanks for your help
    Wilfrid



  • Try the “Open Selection” plug-in by Franco Stellari; it’s available via the Plug-in Manager.

    This is inside Run menu named as “Open file”.
    Ofc you can add it to context menu: http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php/Context_Menu
