You know. Latest version really freeze sometime !
If you could provide more detailed information, it would help:
1/ does the freezing relate to some sequence of actions?
2/ if you rename your plugins subfolder to say "lugins", do you still get the freezes?
3/ If so, try unloading each plugin one at a time (renaming the dll to .dl is effective)
That was just a warm-up (SCNR)
I'm giving up on release 5.4.5. Is this the release you're using? Not only Notepad++ freezes, but it freezes the whole computer so that I can't even open Task Manager, and have to power off. I'm a new user. Can someone tell me the latest version that's considered stable? I'm on Windows XP.
A problem is identified between Change Mark plugin and Notepad++ (which makes Notepad++ frozen).
Removing Change Mark plugin will remedy your problem.
We are working on this issue, this bug will be fixed in the next release.
