Updated to Notepad++ 6.3.2 attempt to edit in column mode (ALT + C) works for beginning of column (within first 5 columns) but does not work. After clicking OK on the editor, receive error "Notepad++ : a free (GNU) source code editor has stopped working. Can't edit columns with this release!!

Please advise as to a fix ASAP.

Thanks

    Hi David,

    Do you have any installed plugin?

    Hi Don,

    No, just standard install. I went so far as to uninstall, thinking that the update could have failed, and reinstalled fresh. Still the same issue.

    I noticed that the program halt or crash happens when one or more of the lines (rows) in the column selection are empty.

    E.g., On a blank page, press the TAB key twice and then hit ENTER numerous times; then, delete the tabs on one of the inner lines (i.e. not the first or the last). Select a column of characters (holding the ALT key) and run the column editor (ALT+C). Click OK. The program crashes.
