Steve Morton Cannot navigate through a file with keyboard keys 2021-03-31 17:36:21
Hello :)

First I'd like to say I've been a happy and loyal nfopad user for some years.
Second, I had a HD failure a week ago. Upon replacing and setting up my system again I've come upon a very disheartening problem with nfopad.
I cannot navigate through any file with the keyboard! I can type okay but
cannot select any text or, as I said navigate through a file with the keyboard. This problem so far has only shown up using nfopad so I'm asking you for help, if you can. I'm stumped.

Forgot to mention I've NEVER had a this problem with nfopad or any other program until now.

I should be more specific.. cannot do ANY navigation in ANY file using the keyboard. Just type and new line (enter) works. "Home" and "End" works.
"Page Up" and "Page Down" works but that's it. Cannot skip words, select
anything with the keyboard. Cannot go up or down.

I do nearly entirely all work using the .nfo extention. I just noticed I can navigate completely normally using text files, it's only .nfo files where there is no navigational functionality. Can't wait to hear if you can help with this. I'm curious as ... heck to find out WHY this is happening.

Thank you :)

Hello! Have you maybe enabled "direct scrolling" by accident? And possibly only for NFO-files?

Go to Settings -> Options -> Direct Scrolling: make sure that "Always enabled" and "Always enabled when viewing NFO files" are unchecked.

Thank you for your reply :)

Just unchecked "Allow changes to text", now all is well again.
GOD! I can't believe it took so long to figure this out and I can't
believe I've never run across this before in all the years I've used
your great program :)

The only Direct scrolling options I have checked is "Enabled by holding down ALT

Thank you again

Ah, good it got resolved. That setting and also direct scrolling is a bit secret if enabled by accident, maybe I should add a notification on the status bar.

Yeah, I just didn't put it together in my head. "Allow changes to text" . I should've tried unchecking it earlier. It seemed opposite of what I needed. :) Anyway, GREAT little piece of software. Thank you for sharing it with the world. It's been my main editor since ... not sure exactly, seems like about 2004 or so. When did you create it?

Steve Morton Re: Cannot navigate through a file with keyboard keys 2021-04-05 07:33:29
Oh, I see the version history shows it first appeared in 2004 so, I've been
using it since it was first out. My favorite by a long shot. Can't believe I never run across that setting before.
