I use nppp for viewing log files a lot. So it's great that I can reload the file when it detects a change on disk.
The only problem is, when nppp reloads the file, it is scrolled back to the top of the file, so I lose my position. Would it be possible to make nppp automatically scroll back down to the previous location after reloading the file from disk? This would be a great new feature.
I really need this feature. It would be very cool if this can be added in the next release.
Does anyone else think this sounds like a good idea?
Absolutely. Without it I don't find Notepad++ usable. So a big vote from here.
yep, that would be *very* useful.
that's one of the reasons I decided to drop Notepad2, which is another fine Scintilla based Notepad-replacement (although having only a few of the features Notepad++ has)
I'll consider it.
That's good to hear. Thanks in advance.
N++ should tail and restore position when files are reloaded.
While it would be nice if N++ could restore the exact original position, it would be almost as good and much easier just to restore the original position and let the user jump a few screens.
The last comment has me lost, but it
certainly should TRY and go to the same location,
I think on a Line#,Column# basis.
If the new file is much shorter, then it must
stop at file-end, or if the line is much
shorter, it should stop on line end.
Line#,Column# is more natural than CharCount
