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.

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