Customised NPP

NOTEPAD++

A how-to / note to self on setting up Notepad++ the way I like it.

SETTING THE STYLE

HOW

Settings > Style configurator > Solarized > Default Style > Font: Source Code Pro & Font size: 12

CREATING THE MACRO

I need one macro, to select / mark / highlight current word.

HOW

  • Open a document with some text.
  • Place the cursor on one word.
  • In the menu go to "Macro > Start recording".
  • Hold down Ctrl and press left arrow.
  • Hold down Ctrl + Shift and press right arrow.
  • In the menu go to "Macro > Stop recording".
  • Go to "Macro > Save Current Recorded Macro".
  • Assign the shortcut of your choice, mine is "Ctrl + Shift + J".

COMPLETION

By default "Function Completion" has got shortcut "Ctrl + Space" and "Word Completion" has "Ctrl + Enter". I like it the other way around.

HOW

"Settings > Shortcut Mapper"
