I used CCleaner on my pc and restarted.

After I restarted I opened Notepad++ and was told that config.xml was gone.

Afterwards, my previous opened .txt document was opened but the font and spacing was all wrong. I was able to fix font but not the spacing.

The new spacing is:

and I want it changed back to:

I tried Settings -> Preferences -> Editing but no luck.


To change the line spacing go to SettingsStyle Configurator.

On the left select Global Styles under Language then Brace Highlight Style under Style and then change the Font size.

This fix wouldn't work for me, so I kept trying and I found what would work for me in the Settings>Style Configurator>Language: Global Style in the left field and Style: Line Number Margin' in the right field; from there, just change the font size on the far right.
