How to use toolbar buttons: First, Previous, Next, Last
Does anyone know how these buttons on the default toolbar are used?
First, Previous, Next, Last
I’ve never figured them out. I thought maybe if I start a search and then move the focus to the main Notepad++ widow they can be used to step through the search results. But they don’t do that. They don’t switch between tabs either, another thing I considered they may be used for.
They’re very prominently visible, and have been a standard feature on the default toolbar for as long as I can remember. So I guess they must have some kind of popular purpose. How do others use these buttons, and what are they supposed to actually do?
I’m running a stock install of the latest N++ and I don’t know which icons you are referring to. Can you post a screenshot? Note that plugins can add icons to the toolbar…
Those buttons probably belong to the Compare Plugin.
Thanks Yaron and jonandr. Those buttons do indeed belong to the Compare plugin as I’ve just tried it out. I appreciate your assistance in identifying that – it had bugged me for a while!
I’m glad I could help.
