Tidy not working

    Meter - 2009-01-14

    I did a clean install of 5.1.4 replacing my 4.something, and now Tidy seems to be broken.

    I have a TIDYCFG.INI file, and I see the options available in Notepad++. But when I select any of available options, nothing happens. No warning, no messages, no changes to the HTML file.

    If I select "Tidy (Most recent HTMLTIDY.CFG)" I get a message telling me that HTMLTIDY.CFG could not be found and so Tidy will use whatever standards it wants. Then it does a no-indent tidy to the HTML file.

    Anyone else having a problem?

      Created file:
      C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\Config\tidy\htmltidy.cfg

      Created directory
      C:\Documents and Settings\myuser\Application Data\Notepad++\plugins\config\NPPTextFX

      All the options in the ini file work now
      C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins\Config\tidy\TDYCFG.ini

        I'll try to fix it in the next version.

    I got it to work by setting all permissions to the tidy folder (actually the whole plugins folder but i doubt thats necessary) to allow.
