What works

Text editing

Syntax highlighting


Search and replace

Some keyboard shortcuts: ctrl+D, ctrl+{c,x,v}, ctrl+{z,y}, shift+{up,down,left,right}, shift+[ctrl+]{home,end}, alt+0, ctrl+Mousemarking (aka multiselection)

detection if a file has changed file manipulation


What does not

jN plugin (in 64-bit edition, 32-bit edition worked fine last time I have used it), which relies on Windows Script Host, does nothing, only adds a submenu into Plugins menu, no scripts are executed.

new plugin manager (its menu item is missing)

gpup.exe crashes and npp crashes after that

sometimes new values copied into clipboard by linux native apps are not visible to npp

When DSpellCheck plugin standalone menu is enabled instead of npp context menu, it is often mistakingly gets focus.


delete gpup.exe or replace it with the one shipped in portable version.

What was not tested

Modern Unicode.

Anything else, but I guess it should work fine.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

1 Fonts are drawn badly and look disgusting, especially Fira Code, seems to be subpixel rendering issues. Even with enabling subpixel rendering in wine and font smoothing in the app
