[Fixed] Notepad++ update resets theme and settings

Hello there,

Lately, whenever I update Notepad++ (using the PortableApps platform) my theme and settings are reset to defaults.
Can you take a look at it?

Thanks!

I have only been using

I have only been using PortableApps lauchner for a couple of days now and ran into the same issue.

I hope this is not a common problem, as retaining the configuration is the main reason why I m using portable apps.
So can anyone confirm if this is an expected behavior or a "defect".

Fixed in Notepad++ Portable 7.6.6 Rev 2

This is fixed in today's release. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Not fixed - now made update,

Not fixed - now made update, does not work my theme and can not choose another in menue..?

[edit]

Why are there two folders with "Themes" - but I can not load any of the 20 included themes (Preferences / Styles / Theme) -> only "Default" available!
Z:\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\Data\themes
Z:\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\App\DefaultData\themes

File with user-config for design
"Z:\PortableApps\Notepad++Portable\App\Notepad++\stylers.xml"
should not be overwritten when updating...

Any other files?

Odd, that file wasn't created for me when I customized a theme. Are there any other files that should be caught before I create a revision?

DefaultData is what it says, it's the default data the app uses on first run or if you delete the Data directory to reset it.

Should be working

I just checked and this all should already be handled. stylers.xml is moved back and forth to Data and is not overwritten on upgrades even if Notepad++ was unsafely exited.

Not Fixed

It has not been fixed yet. I tried to install a new plugin, and it resets theme and settings.
