HowTo / Notes

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"

Notice

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.

This functionality is not exactly like it is on Windows O.S., but it does seem to work, reasonably.

auto-update file crash
by Pablo Alviggi on Friday November 5th 2010, 10:45
"When open a file in Notepad++ and then edit that file outside Notepad++, notepadd++ wil crash"

as a workaround, if you enable Preferences->MISC.->File Status Auto-detection->Update silently, N++ won't show the window asking for the change and update the file automatically without crashing

Yes. This is bad. In Gnome3 a window entitled "Reload" pops then by A.P.I., I assume, disables the ability for one to close either the main window nor the Reload window. It also eats my cursor and forces me to use keyboard's shortcuts instead.
Close X

There in no "x" mark on tabs, for closing tabs!

I have them, and functional. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04, Wine 1.2 and N++ 5.8.2

Did you configure the preferences to be per tab instead of the default one 'x' button in the top right, just below the close window button?

This is a feature which is toggled in the Preferences.
Settings->Preferences..
Click the check-box to the left of "Show close button on each tab".
