Since 6.8.2 Notepad++ frequently hangs
Dror Harari last edited by Dror Harari
I use Notepad++ for a long time - with the latest update to 6.8.2 I now get the program to hung after some time – often when I do nothing special. Is there a known regression in this release?
Note that some of the hungs suddenly resolve after several minutes but some other times I just need to kill the program and re-run it.
BTW, I do use the HexEditor forever disabled plugin but it never had any issue. It’s an incredibly useful plugin (especially when trying to figure out character encoding issues).

Experience and reports show that plugins are quite fragile when changes are made to n++ (not really the fault of the plugins, and the API must be revisited). Please try to disable your plugins.

@Dror-Harari I suggest you removing all plugins to make sure if it’s Notepad++ issue. If it is, then I will try to reproduce the hanging, then fix it.
