  • I am unable to install this new version. I uninstalled 6.8.2 to see if this would help but it didn’t. What next? I am on Windows 7.



  • @Ajay-Gupta Does the installer not even start? Does it crash? Does it appear to install but Notepad++ won’t launch? Not much to go one with the info you provided.



  • Installer won’t even start. It prompts for the administrator privileges but nothing seems to happen after that.



  • Thanks, much needed. Startup and shutdown were a pain. (Portable on Vista)



  • You might prefer to download the ZIP file, and just create a folder structure out of it and put the NOTEPAD++ directory on your path.

  • I tried to install again but this time with the admin privileges. The installation succeeded this time. Not sure why I needed this extra step this time.



  • This is what happens when I try to type or just read something on russian language on Windows 10. I tried to change font to Times New Roman, but it didn’t helped. I tried to change encodings too, and it also didn’'t solved the problem.

  • Hello! I installed Notepad++ 6.8.3 and I have not saved macro.



  • I just installed the update. I no longer can right-click after highlighting text. I want to issue a copy but I do not receive a menu as I use to see. Also when closing Notepad++, the window hangs and I must cancel the process to close the window. I’m running Windows 8.1.



  • @John-Oshiro Please check if you got DSpellCheck plugin installed.
    If yes, remove it will solve your problem.



  • @Gleb-Brain Me too. I couldn’t save Macro after restart NPP v6.8.3.
    Step by step:

    1. Start Recording.
    2. Type anything, ex. bla bla bla
    3. Stop.
    4. Save.
    5. Saved macro shown in Macro List.
    6. I can playback or run it for good.
    7. But, restart NPP then it disappear in Macro List.

    My PC:

    • ACPI x64-based PC
    • list itemMicrosoft Windows 7 Ultimate
    • Service Pack 1


  • Additional info.:
    Saved macro shown in MacroList after restart NPP v6.8.2



  • @BABE-BABY Thank you for the info. It’ll be fixed in the next release.



  • Directly after updating to 6.8.3, the cursor would always jump to the top of a file when switching between editor tabs. Restarting Notepad++ did not help.
    I had many files open, most of them new files without a filename. Closing all editor windows (and saving all the new files to be kept) and then restarting Notepad++ did help. Now the cursor does not jump to top anymore.
    Oh, and I really like the feature that new files need not be saved between editor restarts! I often use them as scratch pads, without the intention to ever give them a filename.

    I believe it’s a plugin issue. If it happens again, please let us know.



  • After updating to 6.8.3, the font suddenly looks ugly as shown in this picture, seems like some kind of monospace font.
    I have been using “Vibrant Ink” theme.
    Only standard plugin (out-of-the-box) is installed.





  • After the update my theme ‘Bespin’ has the same issue as @Nugraha-Toriq mentioned. The font, no matter what I choose, looks ugly and has nothing to do with the formatting of Courier New, also changing the font size makes no difference.



  • Hello,

    Problems observed on windows XP with Notepad++ 6.8.3 and with Hex-Editor plugin :

    (The 3 cases described below are systematic with my configuration)

    1. Win32Exception

      Way to reproduce :

      • Run Notepad++

      • Click on new
        => a “new 1” tab is created

      • Write a text (notepad++ for example)

      • Select view in HEX

      • Select the text in Dump column

      • Type ctrl+C to copy the selection

      • click on new

        => Win32Exception
        An exception occured, Notepad++ cannot recover and must be shut down
        The exception details are as follows:
        Code: 0xC0000005
        Type: Access violation
        Exception address: 0xFFFFFFFF

        => Notepad++ crash analysis with dump file NppDump.dmp generated

    2. Error HexEditor.dll

      This problem occurs when %APPDATA%\Notepad++\plugins directory does not exist (It happens with a new user)

      Way to reproduce :

      • Rename %APPDATA%\Notepad++\plugins directory

      • Run Notepad++

      • Notepad++ windows does not start (notepad++ process is running)

      • Wait more than 1 minute

        => C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\HexEditor.dll
        Failed to load
        This plugin is not compatible with current version of Notepad++.
        Do you want to remove this plugin from plugins directory to prevent this message from the next lauch time?

        => Click yes

          => Exception On WM_CREATE
             Unknown exception
        

      The problem is solved creating an empty plugins directory in %APPDATA%\Notepad++.

    3. 2 “new 1” tabs (minor)

      Way to reproduce :

      • Run Notepad++

      • Click on new
        => a “new 1” tab is created

      • Select View in HEX

      • click on new
        => another “new 1” tab is created

    Regards
