On Windows XP SP2 and notepad++ 5.03, when I copy from the MS windows command
prompt (right click, select "mark", then highlight some text with left click
and drag, and then right click on the highlighted text), if I paste on Windows
Notepad I obtain, for example, this text (right and clean):

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

If I paste it on notepad++, I obtain this (the text is dirty with other
characters):

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. <nul>
<space><nul><nul><nul><nul><nul>

with a single space character where we have <space> and the null character where
there's <nul>.

I used to do this with some earlier versions, but I hadn't noticed this
problem.

I just updated to the latest version of Notepad++ and I don't like how there's
a dark background around tag attributes when you select a certain tag.

Like shown in this example:

http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/7757/notepadqh6.jpg

Is there a way to change the color to something lighter or different? I didn't
seem to find anything in the style options.

Thanks!

Is there any reason why the Extended Mode in the Ctrl+H Replace Dialog is case
sensitive for the entered characters? For instance, \t will find or replace
a tab character, but \T doesn't. I think it should treat both as \t. Please
simply downcase the entered sequence before applying it.

thanks - I had different explorer.ini's in the config folder and in %appdata%

I did a Google search to find out the maximum file size for Notepad++ 5.0.3
and one site said...it's 2.0 meg. If this is true...there's no way I'm sticking
to Notepad ++ for coding. This is a ridiculously small file size to be dependent
on this program for any coding. In fact, I can't understand why Notepad in its
5th version iteration still has this small file size limitation? Is it because
the programming tools used to make Notepad++ won't allow a big recompile? What's
the story on this?

In the meantime..I'm seriously thinking of plonking my cc to purchase UltraEdit.
Filesizes can be opened up to 2 to 4 gig on that editor.

Notepad++'s limitations are largely due to the use of Scintilla (google...)
for the editing component. You can open far larger files that 2meg. I just 
tested
a 6meg file with 4.9.2 - plain text though, so no syntax highlighting kicking
in.

I'm curious why you think a 2meg limit would be bad for *coding*? If you have
source files that large, you have a serious monolithic maintenance problem.
Yeah, OK, a thing like the SQLite amalgamation is ~3 megs, but that's generated
from a makefile and edited as individual files.

IMHO NP++ works just fine as a generic text/source editor, and while hugefile
support wouldn't be bad, too much would have to be changed to support it. Is
it really so bad opening a separate app if you need to deal with 100+ megabyte
logfiles?

When you consider apps like UltraEdit can open filesizes with syntax color 
coding
intact for up to 2 to 4 gig...then I take those seriously. As to trying to write
code without syntax highlighting...this would be the number 1 reason why my
eye doctor would tell me not to use the computer too much. But if I told him/her
I'm doing code with only black colored font against just a plain white 
background..so
I could work with "more" to strategically allow filesizes larger...then he/she
would tell me to get one that allows color coding to help me save my eyes.

I would NEVER consider programming in any language code without color 
highlighting.
I recently tried EditPad Lite to see if I could code in there with color
highlighting...and no go. I stopped using it.

Just to show you how ridiculous it is to try coding anything with editors that
only allow 2.0 meg files...try coding a Microsoft Excel file with VBA (which
has built in color coding) and see the file size after finishing. I guarantee
you it won't be less than 10 meg for starters. And this is for simply entering
code in the beginning without setting up the worksheets with data to input!
So please, don't try defending Notepad++ simply because it's an opensource
project...but has a serious file size limitation of a mere 2.0 meg. It's almost
inexcusable for this program to have this limit when UltraEdit and others 
(admittedly
shareware) don't have this embarrassing shortcoming.

I'm sorry, but are you trolling? 10meg sounds pretty ridiculous, even if you
have some serious flawed VBA logic and aren't doing proper code re-use. Besides,
Excel supports separate modules, so you can split things into more manageable
sizes. Also, don't confuse .xls filesize with VBA size, you're obviously note
going to open the .xls in a text editor.

I decided to give NPP 5.0.3 a spin, and feed it a .cpp file so syntax 
highlighting
would have to kick in. The largest file I had (_win32.cpp from Microsoft's 
detours
package) is 1.2 meg, so I duplicated it some times to form a 6meg file. Took
an uncomfortably long time to load with 4.9.1, 5.0.3 loads faster but (as far
as I can tell) defers some parsing until later on (so scrolling randomly is
slow, until parsed).

No crashes, but it still shows that it's not meant to deal with such large files
(and don't try using the Function List plugin, takes forever to scan for 
signatures
:)).

Again, Notepad++ is "marketed" as a Source Code Editor. It's not really meant
to deal with Huge Files, and that isn't really a shortcoming considering it's
design goals. Supporting huge files properly would either mean ditching the
scintilla editing component (which would mean so much code rewrite that it would
basically be a new editor), or a lot of code workaround which would increase
complexity and the risk of bugs. IMHO it's better to focus on other features
and ironing out bugs, than trying to do such big core changes.

If it doesn't float your boat, too bad - you get what you pay for. Saying that
a *source code* editor has serious shortcomings because it doesn't handle huge
files gracefully? That's plain silly.

No...I don't think my gripes about 2.0 meg size is trolling...just telling it
like it is. Did a search on Wikipedia on text editors and I found an open source
alternative that doesn't have the file size limit. Won't mention it here as
to keep this only about Notepad++. Nevertheless I'm grateful for Wikipedia as
it dispassionately compared all the text editors out there including Notepad++
and I found the alternative that "floats my boat". It's free and doesn't have
the file size limit.

Shame...as I really do like Notepad++. Has a lot going for it...except the tiny
file size limit. I'll come back to it when the limit is lifted...in the meantime
I'm changing my Windows XP file extension support to the alternative that 
handles
the large file sizes.

i would like to contribute for notepad ++ by creating a website design for it..

i would like to ask to anyone with in this community about the idea, if i will
be given a chance to do so?

How do you think a website design would contribute to Notepad++?

Go ahead, have fun with it, and don't look for any Notepad++ website already
present.

Why is that? Are you afraid we will get angry with you?
Come on, be so cool just to say what you use now.
Do you think you are the only one who dislikes (part of) Notepad++?

It's very clear that we'd rather have you swith editors than keep complaining
here with messages that reach a 10 meg size limit. You would drastically confuse
the search engine that is also present on this advanced forum. You didn't expect
to find that here, did you? Why google? Why do it the difficult way?
