View Full Version : some NotePad++ questions

03-10-2011, 10:50 AM

i want to replace my old EmEditor Free, with Notepad++ for taking simple notes and dropping temp code.

So maybe some of the NPP experts can help me with some configurations.

1: How do i disable these small doted vertical lines that show up if u hit tab?

2: Is there a way to configure (plugins) NPP like a browser with automatic session restore?
What im looking for is a way to just put text, code in some tabs and don't actually save them to separate files, but rather to a session that is automatically save on exit and restored on load?

Think of it like what most browsers do, u have a bunch of tabs open than close the browser and if u restart the browser it restores all the tabs.

I normally put a lot if "ideas" and temp/pseudo code in tabs inside the texteditor. I than work though those tabs or close them, but what i end up after a week is a folder with like "untitled1.txt, untitled2.txt ..... untitled12.txt".
Is there a way to get rid of the need to save each separate tab to a file and instead work in sessions only?

Thx Andy

PS: If someone know a other editor/notetool that has syntax highlighting and tabs support, feel free to post!

Common NPP guys, no one can help?
The first should be some silly option i cant find.

Thx Andy

1. What you said - sounds like an option.
2. No, needs to files. Might be an addon for it? (no clue)
