I did my homework before my vacations :
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/commun/misc/npp.bin.v5.4.RC.2.zip

Here are Notepad++ v5.4 new features and fixed bugs (from v5.3.1) :

1. Add theme selector to switch styles.xml on the fly, change styles.xml on
one click.
2. Add google chrome drag and derop tab feature : drag out tab to create a
new instance, transfer documents among several instances by drag and drop.
3. Add Mark all extension : user can mark any occurrence with 5 different
colours.
4. Add new feature : column selection allows to insertion a string by typing
characters in sequence (w/o column mode editor).
5. Detect UTF16 encoding (BE and LE) w/o BOM.
6. Iixed crash bug : Double click a file associated with an older version of
Notepad++ while a newer version of Notepad++ instance is running.
7. lmprove main menu structure (more compact). Language Menu can be compacted
as well (optional, in Preference dialog).
8. Fine numbers margin width is changed dynamically according to the needed
space (but keeping at least 3 digits).
9. ile history list (under the File menu) is limited to 100 characters per
item. Longer file names are fitted to 100 characters by replacing path components
with ellipses.
10. Update Scintilla from v1.75 to v1.77.
11. Indent guideline can be shown w/o whitespace or tab symbol.
12. Fixed two bugs when calculating the width of the TaskList (document list
when pressing ctrl+tab or right-click + mouse wheel.
13. Add an (hidden) option to make the "Filters" and "Directory" fields follow
the current opened document in "Find in files" dialog. The new parameters are
located in config.xml and are called: "fifFilterFollowsDoc" and "fifFolderFollowsDoc"
(set to "yes"/"no")
14. Add new command parameters : -c (column) -x et -y (startup position).
15. Remove change line marker which does not work correctly. Include ChangeMarkers
plugin instead.
16. Fix bug "Switch to found results window" command now switches back to the
current edit view if the focus is already on the found results.
17. Fix the search result inaccurate colorization bug.
18. Fix the Mark all in selection bug (while Find Replace Dialog loosing the
focus).
19. Add 2 plugins messages : NPPN_FILEBEFORELOAD and NPPN_FILELOADFAILED.
20. Fix New document not be switched while double clicking in Find in files
result panel.

Hi Don.
Post by SourceForge.net
4. Add new feature : column selection allows to insertion a string by typing
characters in sequence (w/o column mode editor).
This is nice but there are a few things missing from this feature:

----------
Important:
----------

* Backspace & delete keys should work correctly in this new column
mode. They should maintain the current column selection and delete the
next or previous character respectively. They should also not be able to
delete end-of-line markers.

* When you start block selection you should start ignoring
end-of-line markers. I.e. in the following text:

-----
I'm a little tea
pot...
short and stout
here is my
handle
here is my
snout...
-----

It should should be possible to make the following selection:

-----
I'm a little tea
pot...
short an[******]
here is [******]
handle [******]
here is [******]
snout...
-----

And also, when you make a selection like this ('|' characters are for
illustration only):

-----
I'm a little tea
pot...
short an|d stout
here is |my
handle |
here is |my
snout...
-----

Typing in new characters should have the following effect:

-----
I'm a little tea
pot...
short an[***]d stout
here is [***]my
handle [***]
here is [***]my
snout...
-----

Instead of the current (not how the text in the shorter line gets
messed up):

-----
I'm a little tea
pot...
short an[***]d stout
here is [***]my
handle[***]
here is [***]my
snout...
-----


-------------
Nice-to-have:
-------------

* When you select a column of width 0, it would be nice to see a
tiny selection marker between the related character columns.

* The old feature allowing you to fill the whole block with a
single character was also very useful. There is a way to have both:

* When you have a zero-width column selection.
* Use the new behaviour of adding characters as you type.
* Have the <del> key delete the next character through all
the selected columns. It should not delete end-of-line markers though.
* Have the <backspace> character delete the previous
character through all the selected columns. It should not delete
end-of-line markers though.

* When you have column selection at least 1 character wide.
* Use the old behaviour of filling the selected block with
the typed in character.
* In this case make del & backspace keys delete the whole
selection and leave it in zero-width column selection mode (so after
that you can type in free-style text as described for the zero-width
column selection mode).

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Jurko Gospodnetić


P.S.
In general the UltraEdit editor has had this feature nailed for a
long time and can be used as an excellent source of ideas.

Hi Don.

2. Add google chrome drag and derop tab feature : drag out tab to create a
new instance, transfer documents among several instances by drag and drop.
There seems to be a limitation in notepad++ causing it to allow at
most two instances to be started at the same time. Second one may be
started either by running notepad++ using the -multiInst command-line
option or by using the new drag-and-drop-outside-the-editor feature.

However, when you already have two instances open, opening a third
one will fail. As an unfortunate consequence, if you attempted to open
the third instance by using the new drag-and-drop-outside-the-editor
feature - the file you dragged will be closed and not open anywhere
else (real annoying when you're dealing with a temporary file using some
illegible file name opened from an external application :-)).

So related requests would be:

* I would be nice if it we could have more than two notepad++
instances started at the same time.
* It would be nice if the original file did not get closed in case
opening it in a different view failed after the drag-and-drop feature.
* It would be nice if the drag-and-drop feature also allowed moving
a file between multiple views within the same notepad++ instance.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Jurko Gospodnetić

Ok, scratch what I said about being able to open at most two
notepad++ instances. It seems something went wrong locally with my
system but a clean reboot seems to have cleaned that up. I can now start
much more than 2 instances (up to some Windows memory usage/process
count/whatever limit).

The other part of the original post still holds:

If you attempt to open a new instance by using the new
drag-and-drop-outside-the-editor feature and it fails - the file you
dragged will be closed and not open anywhere else (real annoying when
you're dealing with a temporary file using some illegible file name

Thanks for the new build, Don. Seems to work fine so far. I've uploaded a test
version of the German localization and will e-mail it to you unless someone
finds errors in it.

DC2 fixed the "synchronise horizontal scrolling" issue, thanks.

But now, even after deleting NativeLang.xml, the Go to Next/Previous found entries,
as well as Switch to found result (resp. bound to F4, Shift-F4 and F7) do not
appear in Search menu.

Until someone with Win7 starts debugging it, it likely wont change. I understand
Win7 RC is going beta in May so maybe....

Nothing has changed here (using Czech translation), I still miss that menu item
in the RC2.

No, it is not fixed in code. An updated localization is still required, AFAIK.
See the translation forum for an updated english.xml template.

opening a new instance fails for any reason.

Hope this helps.

If saved in the state, it will be saved by CRLF.

Is this the intended operation?

Han,

I attempted to email the file to you as an attachement and it bounced back due
to gmail's attachement filtering. I renamed and resent it this morning; if
you still do not receive it I'll need an alternate way of contacting you. Could
you please email me ( via the SF user email ) with an email that will accept
a binary attachement.

Thank you,

Confirmed 'Find in Selection' is not working as one would expect. Then again,
5.3.1 show odd behavior on 'Find in Selection' as well.

There had been a ticket on this in the past and it was closed during 5.3.0 with
'Tested, working here'.

ps - will be working on this and will be in IRC today/night if anyone has some
insights to discuss on it.

aathell, to bypass Gmail's file type limitations, change the extension to .txt
(don't just add it to the end). Have your recipient rename back to the original
after downloading the attachment.

Here's what was found after doing some poking around on this:

There is a selection size limit of 1024 chars that will automatically enable
the 'In Selection' when the find dialog is activated; and it causes an issue
where it will reset the 'In Selection' variable if the count is <=1024 (prior
to searching). Also, there is a check for the find dialog's current status
to only set the 'In Selection' variable when the dialog in in 'Replace' mode.

After a few changes we can have both the current (automatic) settings, and the
ability to over-ride for an active search; as well as have the ability for the
dialog to lose focus ( ie: switch docs ) without losing the 'In Selection'
setting.

The patch has been posted:
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2787524&group_id=95717&atid=612

The "google chrome drag and derop tab feature" & "Fine numbers margin width
is changed dynamically" is very annoying.

Sometimes, I only want to change the order of the tab, but it will accidentally
use the "google chrome drag and derop tab feature". Can it be an option to disable
it, just like options in Perferences->Global.

For the "Fine numbers margin width is changed dynamically" feature:
If I scroll from line 999 to 1000 and vice versa, It always change. Its very
very annoying.

this notepad++ is unusable on Win7. Thanks.

Hi,
This behaviour does not look intentional.

1). Open file 1 -- this file will be changed by another program later in the
test.
2). Create new file 2 (unsaved) (over 1 page long).
3). Navigate to somewhere on the second page then select all text with <ctl>a.
4). Open file 1 in another editor, change & save it.
5). Switch back to npp & accept or reject "This file has been modified by another
program."
6). Unexpected behaviour (A) the focus does not return to npp. If the modified
file is constantly updated it is hard to get back to npp to even close it.
7). Now we switch back to npp ok because the file 1 is not modified again.
8). Unexpected behaviour (B) the selected text is no longer selected which means
the cursor position in the file is returned to the beginning of the block that
was previously marked, as is the page display.

Suggested change to behaviour:
1. After the "This file has been modified by another program." dialog has been
accepted or rejected the focus should return to npp.
2. Selected text remains selected when returning to npp after the "This file
has been modified by another program." dialog has been accepted or rejected,
and/or the page is displayed at the same point as before, e.g. line 100 is still
on the screen.

Note the behaviour change 2 is in relation to the previously open file, where
that file is NOT the one that has changed.

Thanks,
Hope this helps.
Npp is a brilliant product, better in many ways than the best commercially available
alternatives.

We have a patched binary that needs to be tested; would you be willing to test
it?

Thanks,

Is this intentional?

<ctl>m in earlier versions marks all words matching the selected text & adds
bookmarks to the lines (dependant on find settings).

When analysing some sorts of data this is just about the most useful feature
of npp, but it no longer works in 3.4 RC2.

I guess this is because the Mark all option now has a selection of colours to
use.

can we keep a shortcut to the previous default behaviour please, or have it
as an option.

Only other way I can find to do this is 6 keystrokes or 5 mouse clicks.

Thanks

Thank you drshelper; an email was sent via users.sourceforge.net. You'll need
to rename the executable after unzipping.

I was sent the patched version and brought it up under Win 7. The find dialogue
box now goes away. I was sent a unicode version and I use ANSI, so I'm loading
Unicode now and will run with that and post if I see any issues. Thanks for
the patch!

It is particularly the "find all" without popping up any dialog boxes which
[ctrl]+[m] does in 5.3 and is so useful.

This "find all" not only marks the blocks matching the selected block, but is
also able to book mark the lines at the same time, based on the setting
of "find".

I would prefer [ctrl]+[m] to keep the existing action to reduce keystrokes.
The multiple styles are of course available with a right mouse click, perhaps
the current one in use could be selected here with a toggled tick mark.

I am on Windows 7 and running the patched version (unicode) that has the fix
for the find box, but saw this same error earlier. After editing a bit I get
a message box popping up titled:

SetWindowsHookEx(MOUSE) failed

the text of the box says getLastError 1428

After this any typing places strange characters in the text.

If it's not a user error can this be fixed in the next release? Thanks!

Thank you for the feedback!

A fix for this has been committed and if no other problems pop-up it will be
a part of version 5.4.

3.4 includes the update to Scintilla 1.77. Don stated that the plan is for
3.5 to be Scintilla 1.78.

Was there a specific feature of 1.78 you are interested in?

I saw this just after the fix was committed; isn't that the way it goes? :)

Anyhow, a friend has donated a laptop to the cause so that Win7 RC can be installed
and some tracing can be done.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Not sure if this is intentional or has been picked up yet.

When I change "Tab bar" settings in the Global pane I usually choose Multi-line
and "Enable close button on each tab".

These changed settings appear to get lost each time I restart Notepad++.

This is RC2 (Build time: May 2 2009 - 00:59:12).

Unable to enter cyrillic symbols in Windows 7, build 7100. (incorrect symbols
appear).
Occurs only in Unicode build of npp, in ANSI version is ok.
Existing files are opened correctly.

I'm trying enter: ФЫВАПРОЛДЖЭ, but what appears is OUAAI?IEA?Y.

Windows 7 english version, build 7100, russian locale.

Have I to do it every time I launch NPP? I believe, it's not a good idea.
Besides, in ANSI build it's not a requirement.
And I've just tried it. It doesn't work.
Instead of ФЫВАПРОЛДЖЭ is ÔÛÂÀÏÐÎËÄÆÝ.

Hey Don,

When using Find In Files with RC2 on my machine (running Vista ultimate), it
does a real bad crash. I even lose my setting for the styles. I keeps saying
that it wants to do some sort of dump and try to save portions of my data.

I went back to 5.3.1 and this doesn't occur.

-Doug

Don,

I found 3 minor issues with Notepad++ 5.4 RC2 unicode version (and prior releases
of unicode).

1). If I open a file with a '&' in the filename (for example: Test in S&I.txt),
the display name on the tab is missing & and the I is underlined. I know the
& usually represent to underline a character for a menu when coding, but this
shouldn't be shown that way for the filename in the tab caption.

2). I use a freeware printer called Bullzip PDF Printer. This printer can be
automated through code and can create a report file of the last print job which
is a standard text file. When I open it in N++, it's all a bunch of strange
characters. Yet if I open it in standard Windows Notepad it opens and looks
fine. I've tried seeing if I could change the file format encoding, but it hasn't
helped. Is there somewhere I can send you a copy of the file for testing?

3). When I disable the "File Status Auto Detection" in the MIsc tab under
preferences, it never seems to remember it's setting. Once I reload N++, it's
all enabled again.

Thank you,

FGump

I think there maybe something wrong.When I click the menu Run|Open file,it alerts
with a window named Create new file that C:\Notepad++5.4RC2\unicode\about doesn't
exist. Create it? When the about file created,I can never use this menu again.
I think it will pop-up a file selection window.

Don:
1st thing, I think detecting utf-16 without bom is totally unnecessary.
1, utf-16 without bom is illegal, unlike utf-8. That's say: it's broken file.
2, detecting utf-16 without bom will lead to less accuracy in detecting other
encoding especiallly double-bytes/multi-bytes ansi.
And in my mind, ability to view file encoded in various ansi is more important.

And 2nd thing is a bug of scitilla. when a full-width dot(0xcf 25 in utf-16
le) plus a full-width char(any char) get together, the full-width dot will be
displayed as half-width dot and occupy half width. If the dot were used in ASCII
art or sth, the whole display will mess up.

btw, i'm write a thesis about encoding detection.
