App Notes

Plugin Admin: When using the Notepad++ plugin admin, after Notepad++ restarts, close it, wait a moment, and then reopen it. It tends to break out of portablization on many systems.

Theme Customization: Notepad++ oddly alters its own themes files when you make changes using the Style Configurator. These will be lost on upgrades as newer themes are copied in. To get around this strange behavior, while Notepad++ is closed, open up your Notepad++Portable\Data\themes directory. Copy and paste the ThemeYouWant.xml file and name it ThemeYouWant-custom.xml. Then open up Notepad++ Portable and select this new theme from the Style Configurator. You'll be able to customize it ongoing without it being overwritten. It won't get any updates from the publisher, of course, though the original ThemeYouWant will.
