Hi everyone!

I like Notepad++ very much but i don't know how to set:
1 auto closing (like brackets) of quotes " and ' and highlighting matches pairs
2 auto completion and auto closing of HTML-tags in files with different to .html,
htm extensions
3 displaying BOM in files that has it
4 utf-8 in new files, no utf-8 as ascii (n++ saves utf-8 files without diacritic
sings as ascii)
5 simultaneously auto completion and auto closing for PHP, HTML, JS in one file
6 viewing and editing CSV files by columns and by rows

Pleas help me. I checked FAQ and manual but i couldn't find solutions. Especially
i need auto closing of quotes and HTML-tags in files without html and htm
extensions.

BTW how could i install HTML, CSS and PHP list of tags and functions with short
descriptions and how could i use TIDY or different validator for HTML and CSS.

Maybe you know some useful n++ plugins for web develop, then pleas, link it.

best wishes

Not supported. You may consider asking the developers of TextFX to add this.

2 auto completion and auto closing of HTML-tags in files with different to
.html, htm extensions

In TextFX Settings, you can set Autoclose XHTML/XML tags, but this is suported
only for the HTML and XML languages. Perhaps the XWebEdit plugin is what you
need.

3 displaying BOM in files that has it
Change format to UTF-8 without BOM.
Post by SourceForge.net
4 utf-8 in new files, no utf-8 as ascii (n++ saves utf-8 files without diacritic
sings as ascii)

Settings -> Preferences -> New Document/Open Save Directory, choose the encoding
for new files there.

5 simultaneously auto completion and auto closing for PHP, HTML, JS in one
file

I don't know if the KVS lexer plugin supports this. When Scintilla supports
nested lexers, perhaps it may work.

6 viewing and editing CSV files by columns and by rows
Well, this is a text editor and not a spreadsheet, mind you... You can always
insert a ruler (a TextFX command) and use either the Column Editor (Edit menu)
or use special typing mode in rectabgular selections. I don't know what you
want to achieve.
Post by SourceForge.net
7 CSS completion, is it possible?
Are you talking of word completion? You have to enable it from Settings
-> Preferences -> Backup/Auto Completion

HTH

Thanks for reply!

I know about it, but it doesn't work. Only when new file has diacritic signs
np++ save it as utf8. If not, then np++ save it as ascii. So if i create new
file without diacritic signs and save it and open and type diacritic signs and
save it again then notepad save it as ascii - it is very uncomfortably.

Sometimes i need to quickly edit table in csv without excel or web, I dont know
how could i ruler from TextFX and typing mode in rectangular. Please, tel me
how?

Where could check list of plugins and <strong> description how they works?



best wishes

One more question: how could i compare two files? I can turn on second view,
but where is compare function? And how could i set wrapping lines, only lines
witout wrapping words?

and typing mode in rectangular. Please, tel me how?
If you select a rectabngle of text, holding Alt while clicking on some corner
and shift-moving the mouse to mark the area, then the following two features
are eneblad:
* Edit -> Column editor. You can insert fixed text on each row, or insert a
series of numbers.
* Rectangular typing mode: if you type in your selected text, a whole column
of the same characters will be inserted. Any non typing action cancels the mode
and returns to normal typing.

There is a list, which I believe to be complete, at
http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=Plugin_Central
. It has short descriptions for each plugins. You'll find a more thorough description
on each plugin's download page or in the bundled documentation. Proper documentation
is the sole responsibility of the author, so there is a wide variety of forms
and accuracy/completeness levels.

file without diacritic signs and save it and open and type diacritic signs and

There are two ways around this:
1/ choose UTF-8 as encoding, instead of UTF-8 without BOM. This way, your UTF-8
file can never be mistaken for an ANSI file.
2/ On loading your file, always check the status bar. If it unexpectedly says
encoding is ANSI, use Format -> Encode as UTF-8.

Without a BOM, Notepad++ has to guess the format of a file. If there is
no diacritics, the file will look the same whether it is ANSI or UTF-8 encoded,
so N++ chooses the more common ANSI encoding. When this is a mistake, you must
tell Notepad++, because it just cannot. Using a BOM is the safest.

There is no native compae function, but there is a standard Compare plugin,
which comes in the installed bundle if you chose to install plugins. See the
Plugins menu and check the entries of the Compare submenu, if you have it.

Wrapping lines: use Edit -> Word wrap to turn on or off. Wrapping takes place
at the window edge, not at a fixed number of characters.

I think that compare plugin should be included in installer as default. Now
it isn't - v5.4.3.

This I'd ask in Plugin Development forum, or directly to the maintainer of the
SpellChecker. plugin.

Chris,
it is possibly to run macro on many files? Especially all open files? For example
i need to cut spaces on lines ending in 30 files. Switching between tabs (files)
and run macro on each of them is horror.

I don't see how to do that. Post a request on IdeaTorent. I'd add the ability
to run a macro on opening a file as well (that would be stored in session file).
