Whenever I'm doing some coding in Notepad++ i need to add some lines at the bottom so if i scroll down, the code doesn't stop at the bottom at the window. The problem is that I sometimes forget to take out the lines :/.

I need to know if there's some kind of plugin or feature that I may have missed that adds some vertical space at the bottom without being actual lines.

Or I have it all wrong and i should just resize the window?

Is having a little whitespace really that bad? (Unless you're coding in whitespace, of course, then your program's screwed) – Phoshi Oct 15 '09 at 18:16

Unfortunately this plugin has not been updated for Npp 5.9 – Joel Mueller Jun 3 '11 at 19:58
This plugin causes infinite hangs in newer versions of Notepad++, apparently due to a conflict between it and the 'clickable links' feature. Disabling clickable links (in the MISC. options) lets the plugin work properly. – Cameron Mar 26 '14 at 14:25

What about setting up a macro in Notepad++ ?

Maybe you can record : Ctrl+end, enter, enter, enter, enter etc

Either that or create a batch/shell script that appends blank lines to your file(s)?

Hope this helps

yeah maybe i can try some autohotkey macro that does it. ty – Prozaker Oct 23 '09 at 22:39
@Prozaker Using AHK, you can send some commands directly to the Scintilla component used by NP++. It has an extended (and a bit complex) set of settings for scroll policy that probably allows to do that without changing the text at all. – PhiLho Dec 21 '12 at 11:43
