Is there any way of displaying the character position of the cursor within a document?
There is the line and column position if I click around the document but knowing the numerical character position would be useful too.
Sorry if this is an easy one!
You need to send the SCI_GETCURRENTPOS message to the current Scintilla and to retieve the returned value. You can do this using a scripting plugin or NppExec - probably the simplest way.
Perhaps switch to Hex Editor mode temporarily?
Like this? https://sourceforge.net/projects/charpos
