"Notepad++ is a must"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is very user friendly and easy to use. The indentation feature and especially the feature where we can close the editor and reopen and it will still have the unsaved data. This feature is very handy.It is very light and the user experience is good.

What do you dislike?

There is no way to check the word count. There are very few options for text editing. I feel notepad++ is more like a code editor than it is as a text editor. I don't like this behavior. It should support both code editing and text editing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is probably the best editor for saving short code snippets or taking notes. Go for it if you want a good user experience and light application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use notepad to save code snippets and take notes during meetings. That way it is very handy. The biggest benefit I have realized is that, whenever I am in a hurry, I tend to close the notepad++ by mistake. Fortunately in notepad++, unsaved data will be retained when I open the editor next time. This has saved me in so many instances.

"light text editor"

What do you like best?

Loads very fast, has inbuilt syntax highlighting for most languages. Tabbed interface, excellent search interface.

Uses very few system resources.

Remembers opened files between restarts.

Column mode editing is excellent for editing tabular data. Customisable syntax highlighting and folding.

For editing game ini files & other config/plain text files this application is a must. Vastly superior to the bundled text editor for Windows.

Has a robust plugin system with a plethora of community supported plugins.

If you can't have Vim - use the next best thing, Notepad++

What do you dislike?

Maybe make it a bit easier to customize my interface. But not really an issue

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend everyone to use notepad ++ because it is a free and really powerful text editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parsing large text log files that would make notepad choke. It has proven itself time and again by providing a familiar and easy interface with powerful tools and features such a regex searching and patter matching to find instances of text across one or more files and count the number of instances

What Text Editor solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"program to create, edit, modify and shape all types of files"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is fast and does not require a lot of resources to work on your computer. It allows you to choose the language you are using to write code, it allows you to select more than one line at a time and edit it and

It helps you to write in an easy way to read. They are some of the features that I like most about this program.

It facilitates the accomplishment of repetitive tasks like modification of text, copy, and paste or search data in the code.

It allows to edit any extension, such as csv, html, css, js files ... You can set the encoding so that it does not change the characters.

It is also a program that supports adding plugins to add new features.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I did not like about this program is that it does not add the functionality of formatting the code you are dealing with. You have to manually add a plugin that does this.

This program has many updates that are sometimes incompatible with the plugins you have installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to any professional in any sector because it is a very versatile program that serves both to program and to only edit text files or excel. It really is a good program and it's free

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program in my work to edit any type of file, to make changes to excels, or to create new files for the development of web pages. The truth is that it is very useful and helps to make faster tasks more repetitive, or that involve modification of many lines.

"Perfect Coding Application for Developers and Coders - Notepad++"

What do you like best?

Worth application to code or to program in an easy way!!

Notepad++ is an application, specially for developers which helps to code for any program whether it is in C language, C++, Java or evne in HTML & CSS. This application helps the developers to find bugs and errors while writing their code in this application after or before running the program also. Even it is very easy and user friendly tool for non-technical users also, as we can use it to write programs in an easy way.

It helped to find the missing tags<>, closed tags, un closed tags, or any other error in the tags. Notepad++ has made its position on almost top of all the application for developing or programming because of the features provided by this software.

What do you dislike?

Till now, it is very good application for me from the software that I have used. I just want that it may contain some tables type structure also so that if a non-tech person wants to work then he may do that in an easy way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nothing to be recommended now. If anything is needed then , we will surely recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest business problem we have overcome after using this is that our developers can easily find the bugs while coding or after coding, which saves their lots of time which they can utilize in their any other work. Notepad++ helps to code simultaneously in different pages of a website or an app in different sections at the same time.

"Sam's review of Notepad++"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this software is its multi-purpose ness. It can be literally useful in any technology domain you can name. Even somebody who is not into technology might use it to edit a text file or make a note to himself. It is actually that trivial and yet so powerful. The software encompasses every imaginable feature that you look for in a text file editor. The presence of plugins becomes a boon once you get to an advanced level of usage. You can switch-in and pull-out complex feature sets in the blink of an eye, just like that! It is that easy and it is that well designed.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about this software is the quality of visual themes that are bundled with it. Developers need to put in some work on coming up with darker themes that are much more polished aesthetically.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I develop software code in multiple programming languages using Notepad++. Depending on my need, I add and remove plug-ins to suit my developmental needs. This results in increased productivity without having to deal with the hassle of switching in and out of different development environments and in trying to remember different keyboard shortcuts.

"Notepad++ | Fav Editor"

What do you like best?

It has a very simple and easy to use GUI such that anyone can use it intuitively. The IDE is damn lightweight and does not have effect on the computer's performance. We can even open any kind of files randomly on this as it does not allocate full RAM for the file, and it allocates as and when necessary, so good memory management

What do you dislike?

It lacks in autocomplete features. If it had a bit more autocomplete features, I would be able to use it in coding too in everyday life.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend this product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for any text editing purposes. It even remembers all open files and also if any text we forgot to save it remembers and shows the next time we open it. So we don't even have to bother to save it. It has Administrator mode that we can use to open system protected files and edit them too! That's a feature that was missing in many of the text editors in the market

"My Experience with another text editor : NOTEPAD plus plus"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ provides support to developers interested in both the front end and back end development. It gives a variety of tools, auto updater, plugins, and themes for its customisation and handling functions, hexadecimal systems and macros. Notepad ++ becomes handy for programmers developing upon Linux Platform. It supports many languages and It has almost everything you need to boost and enhance your programming skills. Moreover, it gives us an Excellent online support for remedies.Notepad++ enables us to open documents in concurrent tabs thus organizes them. It uses light hardware resources and is completely free.

What do you dislike?

Notepad++ requires a license which makes it a costly choice. A few SQL commands are non-functional such as CTE, NOLOCK etc.Notepad++ doesn't provide versatility in its Interface unlike Sublime Text or some other Editor. So due to which we have to keep using the same, old and boring theme of Notepad++.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've worked with a variety of text-editors in my life, for instance, Sublime 3, Notepad++, Notepad, Vim, Brackets, and Textpad. But I would strongly recommend Notepad++ to my colleagues and friends because of its quality, ease-of-access and support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad++ is mostly used for taking quick notes during meetings. Developers searching for text-editor to code in HTML, Javascript, PHP etc. , Notepad++ is certainly a smart choice.

it a great tool that is easy to use and is very light weighted applications with a simple user interface.we can open multiple text editing files in a single notepad and can easily swipe between them.it supports a number of computer languages like C++, sql, HTML etc. we can also add plugin in it like Converters, pretty printers etc. it also has feautres like word wrap,Auto correct, etc.we can use breakpoint, highlight text to mark something.it has advanced search system like we can search in all the files that are opened in notepad with single go by selecting to search in all files .if we forget to save the file then it automatically save it in temp location and we can then come and save the files. we can also check which files have been recently closed .we can easily check on which line we are as it has number line on left end

when there is any update made to the file externally and that file is opened in notepad++ , then as soon as we open notepad we will get the notification that this file is modified .

"Best Software for quick edits"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this code editor is that you can edit any type of language, despite having assistance when programming to have a perfect code. Another big advantage is that it is free software which make it better over other paid publishers, which offer the same or even worse features. Even by adding certain libraries you can compile code in the same editor to check that the code works fine

What do you dislike?

It is a must have apart from other editors and IDEs as it opens very quickly and has decent code highlighting and code completion. So, if you need to view your files quickly and don't want to wait for a heavy IDE to load, it's really amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a powerful text tool, get Notepadd++ because between it's free and it's going to satisfy all your needs as an editor, you won't need any other tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us with small editions, as well as with languages for which we do not have our own development tool.

"Best Text Editor"

What do you like best?

I use Notepad++ as a quick and easy code editor, I don't need the bells and whistles of a full IDE, just something to quickly edit or view HTML, Javascript or PHP.

It's quick to load and colour codes code and syntax high lighting

What do you dislike?

It opens up the files that you were previously looking at by default. That can get a little messy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When editing code, ensure that you set the language that you are editing to benefit from colour coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to save notes of many projects details, and also meetings with customers. In addition, when I need to analyse some SQL code of any other code, like XML, for example, I just paste it to Notepad++ and change the language to SQL or XML and it auto identifies and highlights the key words of each language. This way is easier for me to find issues in SQL codes, for example.

"Un editor de texto simple y rapido"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ siempre se ha sentido "bien". Me encanta la amplia gama de extensiones disponibles que me permiten personalizar mi experiencia como mejor me parezca. Lo que más me gusta de notepad++ es que se mantiene fuera de mi camino. No trata de hacer demasiado, sino más bien notepad++ se contenta con proporcionar una gran experiencia de edición de texto con tiempos de carga rápidos y un entorno que es muy cómodo. He editado scripts increíblemente largos usando notepad++ y de alguna manera lo prefiero a Visual Studio cuando realizo trabajos similares. La funcionalidad de buscar y reemplazar en notepad++ es absolutamente excelente y fácil de usar. Es increíble para mí que el software libre esté tan bien pulido.

What do you dislike?

No hay mucho que no me guste. Hace lo que se propone y lo hace bien. Puede ser difícil encontrar el plugin que necesita porque hay muchos que ofrecen una funcionalidad similar. Si hubiera un poco más de comunidad se sabria qué plugins de los que están disponibles pueden ser más útiles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ es una buena herramienta para manejar texto, transformarlo y editarlo rápidamente.

Si buscas una herramienta sencilla pero útil, Notepad++ es bueno para ti.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muchas veces necesito codificar programas cortos rápidos (java, php, c, scripts) y Notepad++ para hacerlo fácil y rápido. Las capacidades para editar, validar y ejecutar código son completas. Algunos plugins (como json analizer) son impresionantes.

A veces necesito hacer una presentación, y la función de modo zoom simple es muy útil y me salva el día.

"Para editar texto"

What do you like best?

Es software Notepad++ es un software gratuito, parecido al bloq de notas que incluyen los sistemas operativo Windows, pero mejorado y con más opciones. Permite editar y crear texto y editar código. Permite numerar las líneas, así será más rápido encontrar el error o lo que desea cambiar más adelante. Se puede modificar el código de colores para hacerlo más legible. También guarda el texto automáticamente sin tener que dar expresamente al botón de guardar como, una gran ayuda sobre todo si te quedas sin batería en el portátil. El software ocupa muy poco espacio y es muy sencillo de instalar en cualquier equipo.

What do you dislike?

Quizás le falte la opción de depurar el código, atajos de teclado y otras herramientas que si encuentras en otros softwares, pero este es muy básico e intuitivo simplemente para escribir.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si desea crear notas de código de una forma rápida y con auto-guardado, sin duda pruebe Notepad++, es gratuito y nuestro favorito.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Permite abrir varias notas a la vez desde el mismo programa, cosa que en Bloq de Notas se abría el programa con cada nota. Las múltiples opciones de códigos de colores nos hacen más sencillo trabajar y leer el código.

"Util para ediciones rapidas de documentos"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ es un programa increíble gratuito y es una herramienta muy útil para editores web y escritores de código. Una de las principales ventajas de Notepad++ es su capacidad para abrir y guardar en una gran variedad de formatos de archivo. Esto lo hace genial no sólo como un editor de texto versátil, sino también como una herramienta para abrir y explorar el contenido de un archivo que de otra manera no podría ser abierto por otro software. Notepad++ .También tiene muchas funciones de auto-completar útiles para los formatos de edición más comunes. Esto es muy útil para acelerar la escritura de código.

What do you dislike?

Sin framework ni soporte de biblioteca. No hay ninguna función de prueba/depuración o vista previa in-app para ejecutar el código. Sin embargo, todo esto es intencional, ya que noté el diseño minimalista de Notepad++. Estas características lo desmerecerían.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Intenta usarlo y dejarás todas las otras herramientas para esta ligera y fácil herramienta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dondequiera que usáramos el Bloc de notas normal, ahora es reemplazado por Bloc de notas++. Para tomar notas en cualquier reunión o para anotar cualquier otra información pequeña, usamos Notepad++. Como es ligero, podemos abrir múltiples pestañas dentro de él y también múltiples instancias para facilitar su uso. Incluso recuerda los últimos datos que introdujimos incluso si cerramos la aplicación o el PC se apaga por alguna razón desconocida.

"El mejor editor de texto"

What do you like best?

Es sin duda el mejor y más liviano editor de texto con el que he trabajado nunca. Puedes tener montones de pestañas con documentos kilométricos abiertos y no se ralentiza ni lo más mínimo. Además, su caché te permite abrir y cerrar la aplicación sin necesidad de estar guardando uno por uno los documentos, te los mantiene en memoria. Incluso si apagas el pc, te los almacena de forma temporal.

What do you dislike?

No hay nada que no me haya gustado de este editor. Su simplicidad, claridad y facilidad de uso hacen de Notepad++ el mejor editor gratuito del mercado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si buscas una herramienta de texto potente, hazte con Notepadd++ porque entre que es gratis y que va a satisfacer todas tus necesidades como editor, no te va a hacer falta ninguna otra herramienta secundaria.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sobre todo lo he utilizado para la construcción de expresiones regulares, es una herramienta muy potente para tratar grandes ficheros de texto plano ya sean html, xml, json... da igual, puede con cualquier cosa.

"Un editor rápido, completo y gratuito"

What do you like best?

- Tiene la ventaja de ser tan simple como quisieras o tan complejo como desees configurarlo a través de configuraciones avanzadas.

- Abre archivos grandes rápidamente sin esperas.

- Recuerda ediciones anteriores no guardadas, formateo personalizado para tipo de fuente y conjunto de caracteres, haciendo doble clic en una palabra resalta todas las coincidencias y se integra con el Explorer.

- La GUI se puede personalizar para que te sientas más cómodo.

- Actualizaciones constantes mejorando el programa a menudo.

- Es gratuito!

What do you dislike?

- Puede ser un poco difícil de configurar inicialmente. Sin embargo, no hay mucho que me disguste...Es un excelente programa. Lo único que puedo mencionar es que el corrector ortográfico no es bueno, al menos en español.

- Otra desventaje es que esta herramienta no está disponible en mac. Hoy en día, con más usuarios de Mac, especialmente para el desarrollo web, deseo que Notepad ++ se puedan crear para mac.

- El soporte para imágenes sería realmente interesante y que soporte más lenguajes de programación.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ es gratuito, completo y rápido. Dale una oportunidad!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad++ es mi editor de texto principal. Lo uso para todo, desde revisar Perl, .ASP, XML, HTML, archivos de registro y hasta para tomar notas.

También tiene un montón de complementos que puedes descargar para hacerlo aún más completo y mejor!

Personalmente utilizo el complemento de autoguardado, porque como todos los demás me olvidé de guardar en algún momento y el plugin Compare, así que cuando estoy haciendo un trabajo colaborativo y alguien me da algo, puedo saber qué información ya tenemos y qué información necesitamos juntar.

"Best text editor and is free"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is one of the best text editor i have ever used. It is free and open source. It has multiple searching options when working with excessively long log files.It is very fast and reliable and is having a very simple user interface.Notepad ++ supports many programming languages both for front end and back end development.

What do you dislike?

It is very suitable for html,css,php, but not suitable for programming languages like java,python.It can not handle large text files.Until an add-on is installed,It does not show a syntax error in a program.One of the things that I do not like is that,you will not have greater functionalities. The application tends to stay a little slow consuming resources from my computer ,when I'm programming, large text strings,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great IDE for HTML, CSS,PHP. Start using it in replacement of normal text editors like wordpad or notepad

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Notepad++,we are currently working on correcting some errors in the codes.I recommend you use macros to optimize the processes. It's features will let you not to switch to others. Therefore I recommend this product over any other text editor for these purposes.

"Perfetto editor"

What do you like best?

È un editor leggero che lo rende veloce. Non ho mai sperimentato un ritardo al riguardo. Ha un codice di evidenziazione decente disponibile per i vari linguaggi di programmazione che lo rende attraente per visualizzare i file in modo rapido. Ha anche un po' di funzione di completamento del codice. Ha più funzioni di scheda e ricorda anche gli ultimi file aperti dopo la chiusura dell'editor. Inoltre è la caratteristica di mappa del documento ci aiuta a visualizzare file di grandi dimensioni, fornendo una panoramica sul lato . È anche possibile selezionare più colonne e modificarle contemporaneamente.

What do you dislike?

Per poterlo usare come altri editor, dovrebbe essere altamente personalizzato. Inoltre non è ideale per la programmazione in quanto altri editor hanno molte più caratteristiche per l'uso. La sua funzione di completamento automatico non è come previsto e fornisce suggerimenti generali.

Recommendations to others considering the product

È un must avere a parte altri editor e IDE in quanto si apre molto velocemente e ha l'evidenziazione del codice decente e il completamento del codice. Quindi, se avete bisogno di visualizzare i file in modo rapido e non volete aspettare che un IDE pesante per caricare, è davvero incredibile .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lo usiamo molto in azienda, confrontando i log di diverse testcase. Prima di Notepad++ dovevamo copiare i risultati in Excel e poi confrontarli, cosa non facile. L'altro uso che abbiamo per esso, è la possibilità di modificare rapidamente i file di script, che ci aiuta molto quando si correggono alcuni piccoli errori che abbiamo fatto nei file batch o script.

"El mejor editor de texto"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor de este editor de de código es que puedes editar cualquier tipo de lenguaje, además de tener asistencia al programar para tener un código limpio y legible. Otra de las principales ventajas es que es un software gratuito lo cual gana muchos enteros con respecto a otros editores de pago, los cuales ofrecen lo mismo o incluso peores prestaciones. Incluso añadiendo ciertas librerías puedes llegar a compilar código en el mismo editor para comprobar que no hay errores en tu código.

What do you dislike?

La verdad es no encuentro apenas desventajas en utilizar este software, si acaso que si eres un usuario principiante pues te cueste encontrar algunas funcionalidades que se encuentran un poco ocultas, pero no hay nada que el señor Google no sepa responderte.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Un programa muy interesante para poder editar cualquier archivo de texto, independientemente del formato, ademas de poder editar código en numerosos lenguajes de programación. También lo recomiendo para todo aquel maniático como yo por el orden y la claridad en el código. Otra de las ventajas es que es un programa muy liviano para tu PC ya que no ocupa apenas espacio y los recursos que consume son muy escasos, desde que te lo descargas hasta que terminas la instalación apenas he tardado un minuto, ademas es gratis, lo tiene todo este editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pues personalmente lo he utilizado para editar código Arduino, porque me gusta las tabulaciones y la forma de organizar el código, quedando un código limpio y legible para que el proyecto pueda ser leído por otros integrantes.

"Editor de texto sencillo pero potente"

What do you like best?

Un editor de texto que pese su sencillez es muy potente para la programación en código. Muy útil por ejemplo para archivos XML, XSD, CSS, Javascript, PHP, HTML5... porque se adapta perfectamente a cada tipo de lenguaje y muestra los colores adaptados. También es totalmente personalizable en muchos aspectos. Los archivos se muestran en pestañas lo que facilita mucho el trabajo con varios archivos abiertos. Hay muchas otras opciones en el mercado para esto mismo, pero notepadd++ es muy potente para lo sencillo que es. Además permite incorporar nuevos complementos para mejorar la experiencia y facilitar el trabajo.

What do you dislike?

no veo que tenga puntos negativos, porque ofrece mucho por muy poco, ya que es gratuito y la instalación y puesta en marcha es muy rápida.

Recommendations to others considering the product

no hace falta mucho para recomendarlo, es gratis, es fácil de usar y se adapta perfectamente a muchísimos lenguajes de programación o scripts. Además incorpora ayudas y agiliza el trabajo al permitir abrir varios archivos en pestañas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

En nuestra organización lo utilizan los desarrolladores para la edición de ficheros HTML, CSS, Javascript, XML... porque es muy sencillo de utilizar.

"With Notepad++ you will never use another text editor"

What do you like best?

Multiple language support, great find and replace options. Also can covert case etc. Also has multiple search options which are handy when working with excessively long log files. Supports macros for quick clean up or adding credentials to scripts on the fly. It highlights almost all programing languages.

What do you dislike?

For some programming and scripting languages it does not have autocomplete but that is wishful thinking from a text editor, I can use Powershell editors or VB editers for that functionality so really I dont have a whole lot of cons to list for something that is FREE!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple, sleek, fast, elegant user experience with great functionality. (Love the multiple tabs that persist even after closing the app without saving)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using Notepad++ for quite some time. It's def the best text editor out there for systems admins. I use it for batch, powershell, python scripting, Matlab, etc. It's got some of the best tools for finding and replacing text. I use it daily and love how many languages it supports.

"Simple Interface but Effective"

What do you like best?

I love that every programming language is recognizable by it and it is just a simple editor. All other suites (like visual studio, eclipse, dreamweaver, etc) are just too clunky .... I prefer to literally just type and code line-by-line without all the annoying auto-corrections, visual marks, and suggestions. By being a basic interface, it is simple and easy to use and doesn't use any resources so it is very fast. It also is great to edit multiple files open with find replace, and the ability to create macros with the editing, makes mass edits easy.

What do you dislike?

Even though Notepadd++ has some debug ability, it just doesn't have enough to the point of pinpointing errors after runtime. It has breakpoints which is good, but doesn't list the possible values so if you are testing for data validity, it isn't clear on where something goes wrong.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's good to use notepad++ when you are experienced programmer. Even so, if you need to use a syntax checker, either another program or online checker, it may be a good idea to double check your code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Notepad++ for both frontend (html/javascript/css) as well as backend (c#, vb, php) development for both full time position and client use. I use it for creation of new tools as well as maintenance and editing of existing files. The versatility to switch from language to language helps me design since I use multiple languages in one file in my web applications.

"The best text editor"

What do you like best?

Despite being a simple text editor it can be used for mostly any language thanks to their language definitions, also it uses mostly all of the coding options to save files. Also I love how fast and reliable is and the user interface is simple, nice to see and mostly clean. Also it can be improved with lots of plugins to improve your daily job.

What do you dislike?

I'd love to use it as the unique programming tool, but it doesn't have a syntax analysis or a compiler (the compiler I know it's impossible to feature all but through some plugins it could be a great deal).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I could recommend this software just for any coding structure and management of lines (on any language), but this is just the top of the iceberg, I use it for comparing code in different files (with plugins), I've used to check coding configurations and always works marvelous.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving mostly metodology issues accorded by the client, any specific in terms of standarized paragraph, the control of tabulations, the main structure of code and also any compare option wiht the right plugin it's fast and with so many options, but overall is always faster than any other text editor.

"Not just another text editor"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is a text editor designed for developers who work fixedly or sporadically in Windows. It allows you to format the text to match the indentation.

It has very light portable versions. It also includes a system of tabs to work on different files.

What do you dislike?

The downside is that it is not a very advanced editor and does not have great options as it could have an IDE, for example it does not include the autocomplete option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program is essential to edit plain text files in windows, without it you would have to use to the old-fashioned Notepad from Microsoft that is not functional at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my company we use it in a timely manner to edit texts, codes or configuration files in windows. It goes very well to work with the windows configuration files or small Bash scripts.

"Mejor editor de textos"

What do you like best?

La instalación básica de Notepad ++ es liviana, pero aún maneja la mayoría de las necesidades diarias de edición de texto. Luego, si encuentra que falta alguna funcionalidad, hay muchos complementos (generalmente gratuitos) que se pueden descargar e instalar fácilmente para proporcionar la funcionalidad necesaria.

What do you dislike?

Que esto no ha reemplazado el bloc de notas en Windows todavía. La compatibilidad y las opciones del complemento podrían ser un poco más transparentes, pero el wiki es accesible y fácil de usar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es más o menos el mejor editor de códigos que existe, es gratis, es sencillo y el apoyo de la comunidad es fenomenal si es necesario. Los complementos y todo lo demás lo ponen por encima.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Perfect for coding and editing"

What do you like best?

In spite of being a straightforward content tool , it utilizes for the most part the majority of the coding alternatives to spare records. I cherish how quick and solid is and the UI is basic, pleasant to see and generally perfect. It tends to be enhanced with heaps of modules to enhance your day by day work.

And, of course, one of the best things is that the program is free!

What do you dislike?

It includes many features so its quite hard to know every single accessible component. This program is very famous so you should be watchful of where you download it. There are lots of copies full of malwares!

"Perfect for beginner and advanced users"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is a free software to use for several applications as notes or code editor. You can also download free options as a text comparative. Notepad++ is fast and does not require a lot of resources. It automatically save the document you are working on. Lines are numbered so can easily notice where you have error if another editor tells you that you have an error on line X. You have also a the number of characters. The code is easy to read and this way you avoid errors or correct them in a shorter time.

"Notepadd++ review"

What do you like best?

In notepadd ++ you can easily write programs line by line which clearly arranges your for loops and if loops without any confusion. It comes in handy when you try to debug your code. So, its very helpful for the programers. You can literally write any programing language in the notepad and it gives marking lines when you write loops which definitely help you distinguish between the loops in the code and the functions in the code.

What do you dislike?

The interface is the only thing that I like dislike about it, the team doesn't update the interface of the notepadd++ which I hate the most. And the integration of the tool with other tool like visual studio is not good and should be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely useful for programmers and comes in handy for debugging. You can use the notepadd++ for writing sofware code and Python or R programming code and any programming language infact.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Notepad ++ is perfect."

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is a very useful tool. I like it because it allows me to keep my code in an orderly manner, and make modifications in a simple and direct way, i can open documents and place them on the screen and then close Notepad ++. When I reopen Notepad ++ my open documents and my custom view are still there, It also makes editing codes easier. More especially when the software takes a little time to load and you only want a small part of that code, It has all the support for several languages ​​and the compilation and debugging skills are incredible.

In addition to having many useful plug-ins that make editing and programming faster and easier, it really helps a lot.

The automatic and autocomplete correction function is there and the search within the file and between files is very quick and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It does not show a syntax error in a program until an add-on is installed. It can not handle some large text files. The limit is not visible to the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

one of the best publishers in the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very easy and functional even as a simple text editor, it has many intuitive search / replace functions, for example, and it works VERY fast even with many documents at once or with heavy files. When I have to change a line of code or go through my previous code, it gives me ease instead of opening the code in its compiler, which takes time to load the entire project.

"the indispensable tool."

What do you like best?

I like it because it recognizes the labels and marks the beginning, end.

Its main advantage is that it identifies the most common programming languages ​​and thanks to this offers an orderly and clear presentation of the code (indicates each type of element of a color).

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I do not like is that it only serves to program, to write something that you do not want to change too much, or to put images on it, but you will not have greater functionalities. Another problem comes when the platform from which you work is Mac. This application is not available for Mac OS. and when I want to write large text block cadens it tends to overlap my hardware resources on my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software venture to perform your tasks faster and more effective and all within a click that without telling you that you have macros, to automate your repetitive tasks, to further optimize your time and work I highly recommend its use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

our company handles multiple applications based on web environments, and it is necessary to have several IDES installed on the computer, to be able to edit and see the changes in some applications with notepad I have almost all the languages ​​that I use to edit it quickly and accurately within reach of a click I can correct, any error, or add content to my codes.

"Simple Yet Amazing IDE"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is essentially an enhanced version of Microsoft's native program Notepad. It is tremendous for writing HTML, CSS, or Javascript code in. Other languages are supported; however, I have not written in them with this software. Color coding of the written code is very helpful, and it is formatted differently depending on the language which the document is saved as. It's very minimal, so load times are very quick. Overall, excellent application.

What do you dislike?

No framework or library support. There is no in-app testing/debug or preview function in order to run the code. This is all intentional, however, as I noted the minimalist design of Notepad++. These features would detract from that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great IDE for HTML and CSS. I recommend this product over any other text editor for these purposes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can quickly open up a source code and edit its contents without running an entire IDE or framework application. I write all HTML and CSS in Notepad++ now.

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

Cannot handle files larger than 200 Mbs

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need handling of text files this is the place you stop

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Debugging production issues by scraping the logs. Very flexible tool and highly useful. The text highlight, filter and specific selection.

Regular expression support, find in files and search window with clickable results. All this in an intuitive UI. There are several options options in which you can compare two files side by side. Support multi instance view as well.

The software itself is a platform for a number of plugins that assist in various functions. This can be used as a lightweight code development environment. Perfect for HTML, CSS and other scripting languages.

The content assist is another wonderful feature when writing code. There are plugins that make log debugging even more easier. Also there are settings to make your experience better by selecting the corresponding coding theme.

Shortcut mapper gives you great flexibility in controlling the product and customizing for your own preferences. The indentation indicator is another handy tool when programming on it.

Multi file search is a handy and efficient tool to scavenge what you need in hundreds of files in one shot. The results are then shown in a window that are clickable and comparable.

The cache mechanism of the software saves your data and retrieves when launched again when you forget to save the content to disks. This cache is retrievable even after system restarts. The updates are also very stable.

I love the simplicity of use, the low impact of disk space, the performance in terms of: cpu, ram and disk usage, and the essential but intuitive interface. It's Open Source: everyone can contribute to make it better. It's totally free. Great Customization.

What do you dislike?

With its simplicity the GUI look like an older Window 95 program, and this makes it less professional compared to other editors. Plugin Management Could Be Better and more powerful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ have the advantage of require low hardware requirements. This allows it to reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.

"Best Open-Source Editor"

What do you like best?

I really like the sleek and light weight editor that Notepad++ is. Easy to download and that anybody can use it easily. It has syntax highlighting feature which other notepad editors miss, especially the inbuilt notepad that comes with the OS.

What do you dislike?

It doesnt have customizable interface like Sublime or any other text editor. Also, no option to edit the theme! I would be glad if they add something like that!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start using it in replacement of normal text editors like wordpad or notepad

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wherever we used normal Notepad, now it is replaced by Notepad++. From taking notes in any meetings or to note down any other small information, we use Notepad++. As it is lightweight, we can open multiple tabs inside it and also multiple instances for easy usage. It even remembers the last data we entered even if we close the application or the PC shuts down due to some unknown reason.

"Excellent, Great little editor."

What do you like best?

I loved how simple it is to use. Notepad++ is efficient and easy. Notepad++ was made by coders, who understand what functionality coders need to have a satisfying coding process.

It arranges queries/text in an easy to read format and supports many different ones, which in turn makes it easy to edit and use.

The interface and the interpreter allowing so many functional and scripting languages. It has got some plugins that help to run programs from the editor.

What do you dislike?

I started using PSPad instead of Notepad++. It gives me more text file formatting options based on different programming languages.

Not very efficient auto complete function, you have to type most of it before it comes up with the suggestion, also you cannot see the result until after you have coded.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to use it and you will leave all other tools for this light and easy tool.

I know Sublime is good because of its support but if you need a Editor which is free and can work same like Sublime than download Notepad++

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's not a problem, but a useful replacement for Windows' standard Notepad text editor.

"Best Source Editor "

What do you like best?

The best feature about the notepad++ is, it is easy to download, install and use. Line numbering is the best feature in this app which helps in the editing the source files. The syntax highlighting is helpful for viewing the code. Search/Replace option is very useful in case of large files. It is fast and doesn't take more time to load when compared to the other applications, which makes easy when I want to take quick notes.

What do you dislike?

I have been using this from many years, I don't find any major problems with this. But it will be good, if it also has the execute option. Code completion option is also not available.Preview option which is useful in case of large files, is not there in the notepad++ .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ application is the best replacement for the notepad, so if you are using the notepad, you can try notepad++, which has more better features. It is free of cost. It supports multi documents. If you are the beginner of coding, then notepad++ may not be the best editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are many benefits of using Notepad++. I found search option is the best feature it had, which helps me a lot in case of quick searches. Having default spell checker makes the work easy. The code is seen in many different colors, which looks interesting. We can also use Zoom in and Zoom out options very well, instead of changing the font size of the code.

"Easiest and most feature rich tool for editing files"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is jam packed with standard features. First of all it supports more than 50 programming, scripting and markup languages and including syntax highlighting and code folding. Users can even define their own, a first among the code editors we have seen. Notepad++’s interface is adjustable in many different ways. For one, you can control whether tabs align vertically, horizontally and/or behind one another. Working split screen with more than one file and full-screen mode are also available.

What do you dislike?

One of the biggest turnoffs of the editor is its design. In times where even Microsoft manages to create a decent user interface for its operating system, Notepad++ looks like it is stuck in Windows 95. The handling of plugins is another weak spot of this code editor, not only because the plugin manager doesn’t (yet) work with the 64-bit version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ has a very active community behind it and is thus available in a multitude of languages. Once on your hard drive, the editor only takes up about 4MB. However, it packs a heavy punch in that little space

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Among all the code editors out there, Notepad++ is definitely a surprise. Beneath its rather plain exterior hides a powerful, customizable code editor with many useful features that supports a multitude of programming languages.

Thank you for collapsing the comments to have a better visualization of the code as well as a lot of other facilities.

What do you dislike?

has very few disadvantages, one of them is that it can not make large text strings, it lacks more functionalities in this aspect, the update to use different plugins do not come integrated once you have to download them manually in some cases.

I am very happy to use this editor because it adapts to my needs, it allows me to edit directly and the reason is very simple, it gives me everything I need.

important features said, Notepad ++ is characterized by letting open several documents simultaneously with tabs, which also comes from luxury, you can also record macros, has search button, offers a tool to increase the text, lets use regular expressions, and a large etc, this allows me to edit several codes at the same time in a fast and efficient way, since time is something essential in our company, we solve immediate tasks with this efficient tool.

"It’s basic and simple but still does almost everything you’ll need."

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about Notepad++ is its simplicity, light environment and ease of installation. The most outstanding is the ability to create tabs that allow developers to keep multiple files open at the same time. The default menu bar comes packed with features that include editing options, function lists, document maps, and the ability to use folders as a work space. The program supports a huge range of languages, from ActionScript to YAML. Plugins extend the program’s functionality to include converters and MIME tools. The macro-recording feature that appears in the menu bar might not be as useful as it looks but the auto-completion, both for words and functions, will help to speed up the typing and coding. Users can also define their own syntax highlighting and folding.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Notepad++ doesn’t have packages which is now a standard and much-loved feature of other text editors. Customization is fairly basic and can sometimes be slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a developer looking for a basic, user-friendly and free environment in which to write HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Ruby and a host of other languages, Notepad++ is a good option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad++ solves the need for a light and convenient IDE in a heavy and hectic field of work. The benefits include Its ease of use from fast startup to its fast response times to commands during usage. It also allows the user to work onto multiple tabs while mitigating the burden of the number of tasks due to its light appearance and fast performance.

Este editor de texto es gratis y opensource así que todo el mundo puede mejorarlo. Es básicamente una versión mejorada de Microsoft Notepad.

Es perfecto para editar HTML, PHP, y CSS. No lo he probado con otros lenguajes pero el programa los soporta. Para mí destaca lo simple que es, lo recomiendo para desarrolladores que estén empezando y usen Notepad, etc. Es muy bueno para editar un archivo rápidamente: Click derecho -> Edit with Notepad.

What do you dislike?

Se traba con archivos de alto tamaño. No tiene función para depurar el código, pero esto es normal debido a su diseño minimalista.

"The best editor I've ever seen"

What do you like best?

I like that it is very light and very efficient, I like that I can search a full folder, and I can edit most of files, I always use it to show special characters in any text wrote by mistake, also it is very helpful for me to open some files together in different tabs, also it helps me count how many lines in a file for a specific item instead of consuming huge time to import it in a DB and query it, I like also that it shows the line numbers so when a bug happened with a line number, I always open my program with Notepad++ to check the exact line with problem, also I like that it handle a lot of encoding.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it didn't identify the special characters, as it only shows it without shows its type and how it can be created, also I don't like its UI, it needs to be enhanced with a modern interface

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Notepad++ for any one needs to search files in a very efficient way and very quickly
