For some reason, when I downloaded the newest version of programmer’s notepad, auto-close for HTML tags doesn’t work. When the tag doesn’t have “id” or “class” it seems to work just fine, but when I add one of those, it doesn’t close.

Example:

<html>

</html>

<html id=”">

This is actually a pretty serious problem for me, as it becomes quite tedious and error-prone to have to individually close every tag. Is there an option that can fix this?

Bumping this, I really need an answer, I use pnotepad everyday… I will have to switch to notepad++, which I never really liked. I really need an answer to this problem!

What “Latest version” are you referring to? My current version which is a 2.4.0.0-testing.

I don’t think that it is broken in general. I don’t usually use PN to edit HTML (I *HATE* auto-close tags, I would rather have a shortcut key to close the current inner tag) so I don’t know much about the auto-close feature but in all my local tests it seems to work.

Can you give us more information.

Actually I confirmed that with 2.3.4.2350 and my current testing version of 2.4 the auto-close feature is broken for tags such as <html id=”">.

I could *swear* that it was working when I tested it at the airport yesterday but if it did, it is broken now.

This has been logged already as defect 1449.

Yes, I’ve seen this problem as well.

I would type the *simple* open tag first (so that the close tag is done for me) and I would go back inside the open tag to add the attributes.

I’ve just fixed this for the next release. Thanks for the feedback.

Just found this site and am trying to find the illusive one-programmer-tool. Which is the version you fixed?

Thanks to all for what appears to be a great tool.
