The "Run"->"open file Alt+F5" do not work as 5.0.3, it cannot open any files!
I found this bug starting from version 5.1, and posted here, but no one reply me.
I also use the ANSI version, but the solution above did not fix it.
I can confirm this bug in 5.1.1 Unicode version.
N++ doesn't seem to do anything when you highlight a path to a file that you know exists and try to open the file. However if you highlight a part of the path, N++ will warn you that the file doesnt exist and it will ask if you want to create it.
Open the config file shortcuts.xml with some other editor while N++ is closed, and try adding quotes to the paths, like this:
<Command name="Open file" Ctrl="no" Alt="yes" Shift="no" Key="116">"$(NPP_DIRECTORY)\notepad++.exe" "$(CURRENT_WORD)"</Command>
<Command name="Open in another instance" Ctrl="no" Alt="yes" Shift="no" Key="117">"$(NPP_DIRECTORY)\notepad++.exe" "$(CURRENT_WORD)" -nosession -multiInst</Command>
Sorry, use &quot; instead of the quotes. The behavior of the forum software is hard to predict.
I had no luck with that fix.
And I am assuming you mean & quot ; (without the spaces).
Yes, of course. It's hard to predict when html entities are shown literally here in this forum. Sorry it didn't work out for you. Maybe it's a Unicode-specific bug? I use the ANSI version.
No worries. Thanks for the headsup on the quotes though.
