Notepad++ | Run "cmd" in Background

Postby Weihnachtsmann » Sun Oct 07, 2012 1:28 pm

Hello,

I'm using Notepad++ to compile tex files. There is just one annoying thing about it: Every time I compile, I cant continue typing but I have to reactivate the Window.

Tools keeping Notepad++ on top such as "Always on Top" won't help.

My run command is

  1. cmd /q /c cd /d "$(CURRENT_DIRECTORY)" && pdflatex.exe "$(FILE_NAME)"


So how can I run cmd really in background?

And the Online Documentation Site has no helpful information for you?

No, not really. I didn't find an option like "always in foreground" in setting/preferences. And I also didn't find any "quiet mode" or "silent mode" to run something.

Perhaps you should refer to the Notepad++ Wiki or for further help to the Notepad++ Forums.
