I think this is specifically the point of mljones' question. Two of your previous inquiries had no obvious solutions built-into EditPlus, and seems like nobody had a proper response for you. Mljones' asked whether it would be appreciated if someone responded with a "Sorry, we don't know" or whether unsolvable question should remained unresponded.
I think all questions should have a response, even if it is to say, "I don't know" or "EditPlus does not support that," just so that the inquirer does not feel ignored by the community.
I typically try to do this, like mljones, when no reply appears after a reasonable time. However, I've been on holiday for a while, and just noticed a few "orphaned" questions without responses and I'm trying to catch up with them.
Generally, this list has some very helpful participants.

At times, I've replied "Not that I know" if no one else replies within a reasonable time, just to let the original poster know that someone saw their message.
