When I use the Validate now (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+M) to check the content of an xml having a field defined as string(2000) it works when the field has less than 2000 characters.
The problem is that, instead of displaying the Error box as usual, Notepad++ crashes and close if I try to validate with 2001 character in the field.
See examples files in the zip attached.
1 - validate the exampleOK.xml using the the example.xsd, it works.
2 - validate the exampleKO.xml using the the example.xsd, it crashes.
