Nice. I like small and very fast, even with large files.

But I am having trouble with the options. Tab & Font work but Context Menu does not. Also, is there any to save these settings between executions of the program? (windows 7 64bit) or do they have to be reset each time?

32-bit version looks to be working.
(Running sandboxed, Win7 x64) looks to store its settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\voidPad.


(Oh Wow6432Node. Never knew anything like that existed before. Interesting.)

Tried 32 bit version, it does save its settings, context menu does not work here either. No Void.... key in registry for 64-bit version.

Same issue with VoidImageViewer not savings its settings & associations.

Changing the context menu options will only work if you run voidpad as administrator.

Settings are stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\voidPad.
Wow6432Node is used if you run the x86 version on a x64 OS.

maybe you can think about adding filtering lines in notepad
with searching like in everything
where you dont have to know the correct word order
and you can filter fast whole file:)

maybe even with option to show lines before and after matched phrase:)

just a suggestion

im looking for fast tool for filtering log files
but there is no really simple solution
and i see this like a everything for files
just lines of text instead list of files

Dear David!
Does voidpad support Cyrillic? (Russian language).

Thanks for the line filter suggestion.
Does voidpad support Cyrillic? (Russian language).
voidPad is a single-byte code page text editor. It does not support Unicode.

With some modding it could support code page 1251.

You would need to create your own bitmap font to match code page 1251 and set the code page in voidpad to 1251.

On my computer voidpad (x86) stores my change to "Tab size" (2 spaces instead of the default 4 spaces) correctly in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\voidpad\voidpad_tab_size but fails to re-load this value after re-start ("Tab size" = 4 spaces again). Same result if I start voidpad as admin.

Thanks for the bug report.

Please rename
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\voidpad\voidpad_tab_size
to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\voidpad\tab_size

I've added this to my TODO list to fix.

Problem solved by applying the workaround.

Thank you void for sharing your nifty tools with us.

@void, can you setup the download page of these tools in your main site http://www.voidtools.com/
I think it may be better .
Thanks.

Yes, voidpad needs a couple fixes first.
voidimageviewer is not ready for release yet.
I'll have a look at both of them after the Everything 1.4 release.

Off topic:
The most minimalistic editor I ever came across is The Gun (Grown Up Notepad), a 6 kB editor. Never tried it with really big files though ..

voidpad-1.0.0.2a.x64.zip
voidpad-1.0.0.2a.x86.zip

Changes:
  • double click to select word, shift + click and release, shift + click and release loses word anchor. -this is the same as vs.
  • ctrl + click should select word.
  • when restoring from minimized with a mouse click, the top is brought into view, not the cursor. -dont WM_SIZE if iconic.
  • opening zero byte sized files now works.
  • always write \r\n for newlines.

it would be great if we can sepecify in the settings of everything to use your tiny software, voidimageviewer and voidpad when we open a supported file by default or like (Haozip does and some other softwares) show a dialoge and ask you if you want to use the (internal or propretary viewer) or (the default assigned software)...

Thank you so much for this gem.

I am considering using something like voidPad as a built-in preview handler for Everything.
voidPad does have a "voidPad" context menu item for all files types that can be toggled from Tools -> Options -> General -> All file types context menu.
There is also options to set voidPad as the default text editor for certain extensions.
