This is particularly relevant to the DSpellCheck dictionaries, but it also applies to PluginManager settings.
If I understand correctly, the NP++ Portable launcher is intended to copy the saved settings directory
X:\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\Data\Config\plugins\config to the working settings directory
X:\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\App\Notepad++\plugins on startup, and save the working directory to the save location on shutdown.
This is not working for me.
The settings in
…\App\Notepad++\plugins seem to be re-created from defaults instead of being copied from
…\Data\Config\plugins — and they are being re-created, not being copied from
And when the program exits, the previously-saved settings in
…\Data\Config\plugins are replaced with these re-created versions.
Settings for Notepad++ itself — the stuff set in “Settings›Preferences…” and “Settings›Style Configurator…” — are being properly saved and restored wherever that happens. This seems to be specifically a plugins problem.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there an available work-around? (I seem to recall this working in the past, but with difficulty.)
