After using quicktext for a while, the way text gets selected gets reverted to the windows default way, aka double clicking "localhost" in the string:
$mySqlServer = 'localhost';
Will select all the non whitespace touching localhost, in this case "'localhost';" instead of the preferred "localhost".

Also, normally you can select multiple lines and hit tab and they all get indented, but once things start acting goofy, hitting tab will only indent the line the cursor is instead of the other selected lines as well.

Not 100% sure if this is a QT or NPP problem, but the problem only appeared once I started using QT.

Using QuickText.UNI.dll version 0.2.1

  • I encountered both problems as well. The multiline select problem was seemingly solved by the latetest npp release. But the selection issue remains. In the quicktext google code page (don't know about the relation of the two) there is a more detailed entry on this problem:

    otherwise it works as a charm :) thanx for the effort!

    Hi,
    first of all thank you for taking up development of Quicktext
    I confirm the problem with selections being reverted to the windows default way. It's really annoying for me and I would really appreciate a fix for this.
    For what concerns the indentation bug I found the problem is fixed if you change the shortcut from tab to something else (in my case I reverted to the classic ctrl+enter).

    Confirming this is an issue for me too.

    Notepad++ v5.5.1 (UNICODE)
    QuickText 0.2.1

    I did not post the comment on "Date: 2009-10-31 11:49". Don't know why its attributing that to me...
