The current version of Notepad++ (at the time of this writing) is 6.6.3. Version 6.5.2 is the first that introduced a native (without a plugin) sorting function. At least, that's what they claim; even though we're nine releases after version 6.5.2, I have found nothing about this feature:
- There is no sign of it in the menu (or I am blind),
- There isn't even a word in Notepad++ documentation (online help).
Everything I read around the Internet (including this answer) still talks about sorting lines using the TextFX plugin. There isn't anything about a native (QuickSort-based) function.
So: How do I sort lines in Notepad++ without using the TextFX plugin?
