Fix to Emmet not working on Notepad++

in Blog

Emmet is an awesome notepad++ plugin and really makes coding in html really efficient. Getting this plugin to run though can be be a pain.

notepad++This applies to notepad++ version 6.7.5, couldn’t get the emmet plugin to run and when I tried accessing the python console I get an exception error. Notepad++ is on Windows 8.1 64bit, the following steps got the plugin running:

  • Installed the 64bit version of python for notepad++ the msi file can be downloaded here.
  • Installed emmet via the plugin manager.

The plugin ran fine, but for some odd reason, the default shortcut won’t run the expand abbreviation command (ctrl+alt+enter). This was solved by changing the shortcut mapping for the command to tab.

Just to show how awesome it is, Stefan of shows how emmet rocks.

Hi, could be some or a combination of your plugins. I suggest you try disabling plugin one by one to troubleshoot your install.

You can also remove or change these (default Notepad++) mappings:

Ctrl+Alt+Enter Insert new unindented line above current
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Enter Insert new unindented line below current
