Everything but what is listed in the what does not work section.

What was not tested

Additional Comments

Can be run in Mac driver instead of X11 mode, so installation of Quartz is not mandatory.  To install download and use the Notepad++ portable zip version, not the installer.

Avoiding Crash While Editing a Document Which Is Altered by Another Program

Notepad++ crashes under all, but this particular situation when a document is open in npp+ (Notepad++). To test this use gedit to alter a .txt when npp+ has the same .txt open as well.

To avoid this crash, configure the following;

1. Make the check box "Enable" checked in "File Status Auto-detection" (the box of options) within "MISC." (the tab) within "Preferences" from "Settings" (the menu's option).

i.e. have "Settings" -> "Preferences" -> "File Status Auto-detection" -> "MISC." -> "Enable" checked

Recovering from a Lost Menubar

If you activate a toggled menubar (Settings->Preferences->Menu Bar->check box "Hide (use Alt or F-10 key to toggle"), then close the Preferences window, you will not have a menubar. There are two known options to regain the menubar. (Bug 21918)

Option 1 - disallow the window manager to decorate the windows

$ winecfg

Graphics->Window Settings->uncheck box "Allow the window manager to decorate the windows"

Option 2 - have Wine emulate a virtual desktop

$ winecfg

Graphics->Window Settings->check box "Emulate a virtual desktop"


Both options are configurations to Wine which can be found in "Wine configuration", which does not need to be started from the command-line; that is just the method that I've chosen.
