Notepad++ Undo History wanted

command historynotepadundo

I cannot seem to find a history in Notepad++ showing you all the actions you did. Sometimes you might not be sure anymore what the next Undo action would do.

Does this feature really not exist or I just not found it yet?

  • Notepad++ only saves a text file so it's not possible to save meta-data like undo actions. These metadata stay in memory as long it is open.

    However, if you select "Verbose backup" in the Preference>Backup menu , Notepad++ will keep timestamped backup copies of the file whenever you save it. This will allow you to access older versions of that file later.
