"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.

"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?

Notepad ++ es totalmente útil. Ha sido realmente útil para la mayoría de todo el trabajo que hago, ya sea escribir guiones para Maya, desarrollo web u otro desarrollo.

"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!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This program is perfect for developers in Windows enviroments.

"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.

What do you dislike?

As there are plenty options, it might be a little be difficult to know all available features. As this software is popular, be careful of where you download the Notepad++.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad is free and easy to use. Notepad++ is not only dedicated to coders but everyone who use a computer. It can replace several software as Microsoft word or a code editor. You can also download several free plugins.

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

First, I used Notepad ++ for taking notes on my laptop during meetings. It was useful because words and spelling correction suggested.

Then I used it as a code editor for html files specially when I have errors in a third part editor. It easily helps me to find what is wrong. Furthermore, you can download a comparison add on that is very helpful. This way you can easily notice where you have differences.

"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.

What I like most about notepad ++, is the ability to recognize the language automatically, this saves me the task of searching the IDE, to edit my code but I just do it with right click and edit with notepad ++, plus the application of macros to automate my tasks.

What do you dislike?

when I'm programming, large text strings, the application tends to stay a little slow consuming resources from my computer rest the application is very stable.

What do you dislike?

the only disadvantage that I see is that sometimes you do not compile me as I hope of course not being an IDE, it lacks certain functionalities, as it is the advanced and long edition of large chains of codes, and sometimes consumes me the load of resources, from my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

all that we are in the guild of the programming is indispensable this software to write our codes, and parameters, of fast and direct way it is possible to emphasize that this at the reach of a click what makes that it is very practical I recommend it widely.

sometimes when I write a lot of chains of code blocks, I do not recognize them and I overlap the resources of my computer, it is not all the time but sometimes it does, sometimes you do not compile me as I would like to be not an IDE you have some disadvantages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it widely if you want to edit your code quickly and efficiently you should use notepad I recommend you use macros to optimize your processes.

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

here in our company most of the programmers use it for fast and accurate edition of codes, edit host files, some windows servers and for the correction of codes, we need to recycle to reimplement them in other applications.

"Very useful for text editing and programming"

What do you like best?

It shows the program in its own format which is very comfortable to work with. Sometimes we need to open any program from other platform without its being installed in our computer. This notepad++ is very helpful since it does not change the format.For the programmer, it's the best text editor and user friendly.

What do you dislike?

Each time you open the file, it saves automatic previous file. You have to close each file manually. It also occupies more RAM memory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend to anyone specially who deals with text editing and programming in daily life. It's features will let you not to switch to others.

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

I believe each company should have it since it makes the life easier. Specially you can edit any programming file without IDE for example Python scripts. It is very beneficial for any user,student to corporate

"Notepad++ V7.2 Verion - Review"

What do you like best?

We are using Notepad in our Company & Projects. Below are the likes:

1. Notepad is used for SQL commands to Edit which is easy to view, Edit and remove the commands. Best Suitable for TSQL commands to view and order by the BEBIN to END commands as required.

2. Used to Open big EDW (Enterprise Dataware House) files from the FTP system. Usually for our Healthcare projects we used this product to open the GB size files from the system which is quicker than Ultra EDIT tool.

3. Easy to remove the spaces using Blank Operations which is used for .Net codings and SQL codings to oview.

4. Line comment operations is easy have it for commenting and uncommenting the SQL codes.

5. Used to view multiple languages and examples are Python, Smalltalk, Visual Basic, Pearl & TSQL of any types.

6. Auto completion helps to type a coding as required for lot of open systems (Auto command operations)

What do you dislike?

Some of the dislikes are:

1. Open big files take more time rather than Ultra EDIT tools.

2. License is costly as money required to procure.

3. some of the commands in SQL are not yet updated in the system Like NOLOCK, CTE and others etc.,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good one with costlier licenses.

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

Business wise this is used for Subrogation Projects in Healthcare Industry. To test the system using Big files from dataware house and change the SQL commands used to implement the codes in systems directly.

"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.

"Convenient, light weight and easy to use"

What do you like best?

The ease of use, comparison capabilities, text highlight

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.

"The simplest and most powerful tool for Editing"

What do you like best?

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.

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

It semplify the coding process with its many functions like: Document Map and Multiple Cursors, Loads of Plugin with which you can add features and customize them, and with the support of Macros.

"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.

"the fastest editor within one click."

What do you like best?

What I love most about this software is that it automatically recognizes the language, which I want to edit, it should be noted that tabulating and occupying little disk space allows me to quickly edit a click, almost any file of programming codes.

What do you dislike?

the only drawback that I see is that when compiling large text strings, it tends to be slow, and sometimes it does not read the amount of text strings, it does not have as many functionalities in this aspect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this software is almost indispensable for a programmer who needs to review his code in a fast and efficient way I recommend his use widely.

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

I use it to edit my files in most programming codes that I recycle, the edits using right click, and edit, it should be noted that the macros that I use allow me to automate some tasks of my codes.

"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.

" Nice and fast editor"

What do you like best?

If you have to review programming codes without having to open the programming tool (IDE), this quick opening editor is ideal because in addition to highlighting with reserved words, variables, strings, etc. formats. 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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

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.

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

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.

"the simplest and simplest editor."

What do you like best?

I like it because it is an advanced notebook, it allows me to edit almost any code that is programming, html, php, sql, recognizes different programming languages with just right click and edit with notepad ++ it is very quick to edit any file or code that We need to review very urgently.

What do you dislike?

you do not compile like the IDE even though it recognizes programming languages, and when I write large code strings it often fails and consumes hardware resources from my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is nothing easier than editing your code without the use of heavy ide, to be able to fix or correct any error that contains your code, I highly recommend its use...

"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.

"Mejor editor de texto"

What do you like best?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Usarlo en sustituto de Microsoft Notepad. Si lo que buscas es un programa parecido a Sublime Text gratis, este es tu editor de texto.

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

Lo uso para crear y editar código PHP y HTML.

"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

"Very capable editor, exceptional Price"

What do you like best?

The editor is easy to use, and the large amount of plugins to get extra functionality helps make this editor a tool for everyone. Notepad++ has been around for a long time, and the mature code base certainly shows as I have not had a crash or an error with this editor. Notepad++ also allows the user to convert files between different OS formats for line endings, as well as HEX and ASCII. There is support for macros to perform repetitive tasks.

What do you dislike?

Large file handling (1+ GB) is slow. The newer 64bit version may have corrected this, but I have not tried large files at this time. Notepad++ is a text editor, and not an IDE, so the lack of project support or bundling of files together is not really an issue, but it is missing in this product if you are looking for project support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a free tool it is hard to get any better than this editor. The editor is feature packed and works as expected.

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

Log file monitoring, data editing. We use Notepad++ on our QA machines to make working with logs, trace files, etc. quick and efficient With modern software development, searching through logs is common practice when diagnosing errors. The Find in Files has been available for a long time, and works well. Notepad++ had this feature before many other editors did.

"If you can programming it Notepad++ can do it do it you"

What do you like best?

One of the main reasons I love Notepad++ is because of it has a simpler interface and better plugins than similar free code text editors. Its multi language support, both old and new codes makes it one of the best choice in the market. From my personal perspective, as a high school teacher, is it friendly graphical interface that all the kind find so familiar.

What do you dislike?

Maybe its plugin support. They really need to work on that. But for a free tool it is really good, and you will always find someone ready with an answer for any problem you might find; programming any kind of programming language.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look for good plugins, you might find some that really don't work well, especially the compilers. But once you found a good one you'll be SO please that you'll forget the time you spent searching for it.

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

Teaching high school kid about programming is not an easy task, but thanks to this tool is can be done with MUCH less effort. Its wide languages support make it almost the number 1 GO tool for teacher any programming language that there is.

"A must-have for anyone working with code or XML files."

What do you like best?

It's extremely easy to use and seems to automatically parse XML files to where the indention settings are correct upon loading. I like how the previously opened files are opened back up upon startup and the tabs make having multiple files open at once easy to manage. It gives a line number, allows you to collapse or expand groups and automatically color-codes everything.

What do you dislike?

I am not a power user of Notepad++ but use it as a much better alternative to Windows Notepad. That being said it seems like there is a new update I am being prompted to install nearly every time I open up Notepad++, which can be a little annoying but I also know having new features and bug fixes is nice, too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free so it doesn't hurt. It also seems to be the industry standard so it's the best place to start.

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

We use ini, XML, HTML, and custom binary files for storing settings for the software we create. Notepad++ handles all these file types and allows us to make changes to them quickly.

"Good and very simple user interface."

What do you like best?

I mostly like this software user interface. Because it is very simple and user friendly. It is automatically highlight the syntax so that while writing the code we can easily find the where the syntax is started and where syntax is ended. Very easy to navigate the code having many shortcut keys. Those are very useful to done the work very quickly. We can easily done the work with this simple and powerful editor. The best think of the editor is having lot of features even in free edition also.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing of this software is it doesn't import any packages related to my code. So that programmer need to import the all the packages related to the requirements of the code. It only highlight the code not showing any mistakes or any errors so that programmer is need to do lot of hard work to fix the errors and to find the syntax errors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a fresher for coding use this software for write the code because you need to do the entire work yourself only. So that you will get hundred percentage. If you are a experienced programmer you can use this software for editing the some minor changes in your code.

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

This software is having many features even in free version so that i can easily develop the code. I can easily reduce the time of the code development. Because of its special syntax highlighting features.

"Best Editor"

What do you like best?

I have been using this from 2 years. There are many best things about this application. We can edit all the files, the files can be saved in .txt, .html, .css , .js and many more forms.It has plugins for almost anything we need. It supports all the files. Line selection and line numbering are the best features for this app. We can implement the word wrap automatically. We can select the file extensions from the menu itself.

What do you dislike?

We can not execute the programs from the notepad++. It will be better if this feature is also provided. And there is no program preview in this app. For large coding programs, it becomes difficult to look all over the code. The handling of plugins could be more better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has got the advanced features when compared to the simple, normal notepad. Word search, word replacement, line numbering, there are many useful features in this app. So, I would like to strongly recommend to my colleagues and friends to use this app. It is free of cost to download and install and is highly portable. The keyboard shortcuts are also completely configurable. We can use all these features with ease. Though it has some corns, it is the best code editor.

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

I noticed many benefits from this app. We can use multiple cursors for making code changes in several places at once. The plugin manager automatically downloads the list of all plugins including the name,category,version and stability.We can control whether tabs align vertically or horizontally.

"A Web Editor's Best Friend"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is an incredible freeware program that is a highly useful tool for web editors and code writers. One of the key benefits of Notepad++ is its ability to open and save in a very wide variety of file formats. This makes it great not just as a versatile text editor, but also as a tool to open and explore the contents of a file that cannot otherwise be opened by other software. Notepad++ also has many useful atuo-complete features for the most common editing formats. This is very useful for speeding up code writing.

What do you dislike?

While the software is very flexible the presentation is admittedly sparse; the graphic designer in me might like to see a spiffy user interface, but at the same time I truly admire the bare-bones, super-fast architecture of the software. You'll be hard pressed to find a zippier program! The power of Notepad++ has a lot to do with how one uses it and less to do with how it looks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ is a wonderful free program. Many people use it to create entire websites! But don't expect it to be too fancy. Whatever code you are writing Notepad++ will help you write it better.

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

Since Notepad++ can open and edit a large variety of text based file formats I often use it to edit obscure file types such as .fdv files which are used in some full dome video presentation software. I also use it for more typical editing applications such as css, html and javascript files.

"Love Notepad++"

What do you like best?

This program is my go to whenever I have to do some quick text notes or editing. I love the multiple tabs it offers. This is a serious advantage over regular Notepad. When you are looking to scribble some quick notes down, this is the way to go. The parenthesis highlighting is also really nice (it highlights the corresponding beginning/closing parenthesis in your text). It's also very convenient that i saves your work automatically and pops up the next time you open the program. That way, when I am taking quick notes I don't have to worry about losing my work if there is a random restart of shut down on my computer. I also like that it highlights the row you are on. The spellcheck features is also a huge benefit of this product -- something that regular Notepad doesn't offer.

What do you dislike?

I wish the text auto-wrapped. It's somewhat annoying that the text will continue at length until you specifically decide to start another line.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a really easy software to pick up. It's as easy to use as regular Notepad -- which a lot of people are familiar with-- but it has a lot of additional features which make it the clear winner over Notepad.

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

I mostly use Notepad++ for taking quick notes when I am in a conference call with a client. It's a quick way to digitally write down my notes on the fly.

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is the best one I have seen ever. I like the search/replace option more in this notepad++.There is line selection/line numbering, also we can edit almost all files. The file extensions can be selected from the menu itself. Also it offers plugin support, syntax highlighting, This is the most upgrade version for the notepad. Zoom in and Zoom out, like this there are many advantages, which I like them most.

What do you dislike?

I have been using Notepad++ from years, and I don't find any major problems with that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like to recommend this app to my colleagues and friends. As I found this is the best one when we compare it with notepad. Notepad++ has many features, like editing the code, also line numbering/line selection,syntax highlighting,search/replace. It beats the notepad. It is an open source that is completely free. Zoom in and Zoom out are the best options. Notepad++ know when the files are modified in the background. So, I surely recommend my colleagues to use this app in their project work.

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

I can say that this is the best application for the company-wide development. There are many productivity benefits from this applications which i like the most. And it is easy to edit all the files using notepad++, I am using this in my project. I am editing all my code related files using notepad++. We can use this app with ease. When we compared to notepad, this app has many benefits so I would love to use this app in my coming projects also.

"Notepad++ is one of the simplest, yet powrful text editors"

What do you like best?

Is fast, is easy and is simple, yet it is powerful. It has access to a large collection of plugins which expands its functionality. One of the first thing I do when I install a new machine is to replace WIndows Notepad with Notepad++.

What do you dislike?

It's starting to show its age, and does not really fit with the rest of the operating system (because of the UI). It also has problems with huge files without carriage returns: becomes slow to use in this scenario. Otherwise it is a really good program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sublime text? Nope. Vim on Windows? Nope. Raw Notepad? Nope nope. Just try Notepad++, it is becoming a de facto standard for Windows.

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

Anytime I have to edit a configuration file or do a quick edit for a program (mainly scripts), it's easier to just launch Notepad++ and do it rather to launch Visual Studio or another big IDE. This saves tons of time, and lets you get the job done.

"Notepad++, One of the best text editors."

What do you like best?

It is one of the best text editors in the market and free, supports a large number of programming languages, I currently work in the retail area and I need to edit different types of languages, PL / SQL, java, sql, XML among many others, being this way, this tool is very useful for me, since it gives me the opportunity to work on these languages just a click away, plus it has many useful pluggins that make the editing and programming faster and easier, it really helps a lot.

Added to this is a very light program so it does not use much memory, large amounts of files can be opened and the memory is not affected, it always has an update that solves some bug and a great performance, an application very used in the computer area of my company.

What do you dislike?

Although it is a very complete and useful tool you can improve some things to make it even better, such as:

This tool is very used by programmers, so if it were possible to add the function of executing the code or make a deploy would be perfect, I know it is not an IDE, but this would give a plus to their technical capabilities.

Versioning the application to be used in various devices or operating systems, if possible to communicate with each other devices and thus have your files connected and editable from different devices.

Make the graphic interface editable, be able to change the skins.

To be able to upload to the cloud, an own version of notepad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you need a versatile, intuitive text editor that can handle different languages and for free, Notepad ++ is what you are looking for, it covers all the technical needs, it has a lot of useful plugins that will help you in your work and editing.

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

When the company presented the need for a text editor that handled all the languages used in the area, it was very complete with the necessary tools and pluggins for the work and it was free, notepad was the answer, with this application it was they supplied all the technical needs that were needed in the area, leaving all workers happy with their versatility and usefulness.

"Best windows application for noting any information or developing small applications "

What do you like best?

In notepad best facility is that we can write any type of program code so we don't need to go for any large IDE for developing code.

it will store data untill we close The tab manually (if power supply will lost then generally data will be lost unless we save that but in this application data will not be loss )

in this application there are more number of option to choose notepad++

What do you dislike?

i dislike the user interface but when we compare to notepad it is much more best

in Notepad ++ we get intellisense but we wont get full pledged (i .e braces bracket etc.all these we wont get)

in notepad++ font alignment wont be good when compared to any other editor

Auto updation will not be performed in this applicaion

Recommendations to others considering the product

i strongly recommend to my friends and colleagues bec it is more useful for developing small applications

so that we dont need to use special IDE to devlop that project

it is free of cost

we can use notepad++ for noting important information

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

business problems i faced is when we want to compile the code it wont have debugging option if notepad ++ will having debugging feature then it will be more useful for developer

notepad ++ is much using for developing front end application like html and angular applications.

notepad is best application for developing small applications.

we can perform or tasklist we can do in this application

"Full-featured and flexible editor"

What do you like best?

There are many things about this text editor that I like -- multiple tabs, blazing fast, "aware" of multiple programming languages (it automatically color-codes keywords, etc. for example if you save a .py for Python file). The ability to quickly search for a string of text in all files in a folder, and then search again within those results, is very useful. Plus it's free!

What do you dislike?

This editor is about as close to ideal as it could be. There are no negatives as far as I'm concerned.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've tried several enhanced editors, such as Atom, Notepad++, and Sublime 2. This one is my favorite for features, ease of use, and quality.

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

I use it to keep multiple tabs open when taking notes (desk is too small for a scratch pad). Also can keep multiple files open in tabs as part of a full "project" for ease of opening groups of files together.

"Straightforward and incredably useful"

What do you like best?

I have yet to find something that Notepad++ couldn't do. It has a ton of features that I'm sure would be useful for a more experienced coder, but it is also very easy to just get to what you need to do without worrying about the bells and whistles.

What do you dislike?

The way files are saved and opened is not always intuitive. Also, if you paste a snippet of code into the sheet before designating the language you cannot change it after the fact. You need to save it as a new file.

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

I do not work in web design or anything related to it, but Notepad++ is simple enough that I can easily make a more illustrative example of what I am trying to accomplish to show the web team.

"An excellent, low-cost solution for editing code"

What do you like best?

Easily the best feature of Notepad++ is its excellent color coding. Unlike other text editors, it allows the user to easily track formatting across a variety of languages simply through color. A simple change that makes a big difference. The inclusion of tabs to keep multiple files open simultaneously makes it much easier to manage than some alternatives.

What do you dislike?

The find and replace feature is clunky. It doesn't accept very many characters when you are pasting content into the bar, which makes it much more of a hassle to search and correct a file than it really needs to be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ is free and will let you edit files from a variety of languages swiftly and easily. It is as fully featured as any commercial option and as easy to use.

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

I have to edit HTML files as part of my work. Notepad++ is easier to use than most other solutions, and is well supported and entirely free.

"Great editor for quick notes and html coding"

What do you like best?

I can use it for temporary notes - even if I don't save the file I can close Notepad++ and it keeps a copy available for the next time I open the program. I also really like the setting for word wrap, much easier to read than text editors that don't wrap lines.

What do you dislike?

Can't really think of a dislike since what I'm using it for is really simple, straightforward note taking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it. It's a free download and you can run it from the *.exe instead of installing it the way most software runs. I think it's a significant upgrade from the notepad app that comes with Windows.

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

While I've used it to code some of the pages on my business website, I've usually used other programs for coding. I frequently use it for personal notes - especially temporary files that I just need to scribble down information for a few minutes.

"The best code editor for Windows"

What do you like best?

Developers mostly like to use Linux. I need to edit the code on my Windows. Notepad is simple, and it has many options with lining, seek and many others. It supports tabbed editing, which allows working with multiple open files in a single window. Not every user will like it, because there are many tools to do it.

For non programmers, there are easy to use plugin menus and a built in macro recorder.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it may brake the leveling. It's really bad. Appart from that I haven't found anything bad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to anyone who needs an app to browse or edit the code on Windows.

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

It has allowed me to edit code in Windows in a very simple way.

"A nice free source code editor. "

What do you like best?

Open source - which I love to support when ever possible (and not just because of the cost, but because of the ideals). Very small "foot print" so it will run on just about anything. Has most the qualities that are really needed for a small business / small non-profit / hobbyist.

What do you dislike?

Really hard to find a negative as it's open source and focuses on simplicity. It doesn't have the bells of whistles of some things, but it never said it was going to. It could have a guided tutorial for those who need it? But again, programs like that tend to be for-profit. You can find everything you need with a google search or on youtube! Set aside some time to learn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it time. It doesn't walk you through as some programs, but it will work well.

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

A nice way to work with a bit of source code in our webpage - work flawlessly for that.

"Notepad++:Best editor"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is the best editor I have seen so far. HTML, Java,CPP, Android, be it any language, Notepad++ provides the best readable format. Moreover, it gives proper indentations for all the languages. "Edit with Notepad++" is the best option for developers.Moreover, it provides almost all the functionalities of Word.

What do you dislike?

The appearance of the software can be improved a little. There is a lack of some formatting functionalities. More options should be provided for text formatting. Some graphic options can also be included.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have to deal with text editing and documentation on a day to day basis, Notepad++ is the ideal choice.

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

Given a code, if I am require to make some changes in it, I use Notepad++. Moreover, any documentation is also done using Notepad++.

"Great for all languages"

What do you like best?

A Powerful, Free Code Editor Packed With loads of Features. It is a free, open source code editor. it is written in C++, so it's even light just nearly 3MB. It has great standard features. It supports more than 50 programming languages which is great, I use it for C/C++, Java, PL/SQL, Python, Perl, Unix scripting and even it has support for languages which are so old like UNIFACE and rarely used. It makes my coding experience quicker by features like auto-completion for words, functions and function parameters as well as auto indentation and brackets highlighting during programming. it's search and replace functionality is fantastic. Even I can search anything in multiple files opened or one file opened. Working on the split screen with more than one file is awesome to compare too. we can use multiple cursors and loads of the plugins are available and easy to use. Very easy to use and we can even comment/remove comments with one click over a section of code. Makes my life really easy to use and test. It can work well with macros too, again one great feature.

What do you dislike?

Plugin management can be bit better, and they can improve their search option for negative numbers. Other than that it's really great tool for me and keep on using it a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please use it, it's better than other editors and very easy to use.

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

Programming on several languages and even it can save in a particular file format. Makes programming on any language really easy to use and test.

"Great for editing text files, CSVs, html, xml, etc."

What do you like best?

It properly formats multiple programming languages, which makes it great for quickly editing a file. It supports having multiple tabs open, and remembers the files you had open last time. Sometimes I'll use it for quickly editing a script of file and not save the changes. When I open Notepad++ the next time, it lets me pick up right where I left off. I often leave multiple "temp" files open when I'm working on a project, and just close them when I'm done without saving them.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints on functionality. It doesn't have a way to display delimited text files in columns, but with the plugin architecture someone could probably make a plugin to do that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a lightweight text editor that supports multiple programming languages, Notepad++ should definitely be on your evaluation list!

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

I needed a way to view and edit formatted XML files, such app.config and web.config. Notepad++ does an excellent job. I set it as my default editor for XML, config files, CSV, and text files, and occasionally also use it for C# or SQL when I need a quick easy editor. I've recommended it to several colleagues who need an XML or CSV editor.

"Simple editor for multiple programming languages"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to select the code type I am programming in so that I get color coding in a notepad like environment. I can customize the colors and utilize the line numbers to there full advantage.

What do you dislike?

It could support some additional languages, such as ColdFusion and an easier to understand UI for more novice users to editors such as these. There are a ton of features and settings and the default settings are good, but you can get lost if you want to make a specific change to the core functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Install it for free, you cant lose! When you do if you import HTML code and it is all nasty make sure to install the plugins for "XML Tools" and "Indent by Fold" then you can hit ctrl+alt+shift+B then use Reindent File to get a perfectly organized HTML document making it easy to make changes or find problems. Good formatting is key to your code!

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

I use notepad++ to replace notepad as it is simple and my preferred method of managing code. I love how it has access to so many plugins that lets me automate simple things like re-indenting the document correctly for HTML or to split my XML with Line Breaks for an easier read. Since Notepad++ is free and I don't need a live viewer in programs like Adobe Dreamweaver it is the perfect lightweight solution to managing a code base.

"A great notepad with many useful features."

What do you like best?

Some of the things I like best is the ability to have multiple tabs and also line numbers - great when working with code if you have line wrapping on, so you can see where the new lines are.

The coding language checked work really well too.

Being able to compare two files side by side is very useful too, to see changes.

The restore recently closed files option under the file menu is also very useful.

The plug-ins library can also prove useful if you are after a bespoke solution, but the basic ones it comes with will serve most purposes.

What do you dislike?

There is very little not to like about this great tool - what I would say is that for many people there are too many options and menus - it would be great to be able to customise these sometimes.

A print preview function would be a very useful facility in order to make sure that if you do need to print anything you are optimising it - we try not to print, but when we do, we really would like to make sure we use as little paper as possible!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just download it and try it!

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

This tool just makes working with text-based documents so much easier - whether it is html, css, java or another coding language or even batch files.

"The Swiss pocket knive of the text editors"

What do you like best?

Versatility I did never feel better at fixing thousands of lines code from my personal laptop. The function "Go to line" is so useful.

Multiple language support.

You can add plugins, improve the whole language structure you are working with, also be part of the community to make your own improvements to the very software.

The design is so simple and professional at the same time friendly for a new user. The use of macros is not a plus so if you are used to automatic tasks this could help a lot.

As in many code editing software the function list can be found simply on the menu.

A tip, on the official website you can find a cheat sheet for a smart use of the software.

Portability is one of the best thing this software brings.

What do you dislike?

Hard to tell, after 5 constant years working with it I can't blame about anything but maybe the limited development on the User Defined Language List, or the Plugins updates but as in every "free software" one can not complain for the limited speed of development for ethics reasons.

The Ghost Typing is not maybe the more useful thing on this software but remains interesting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the ultimate note pad for any developer. Don't hesitate just try it!

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

Usually I write all the css or javascripts and so other things for my webpages using this amazing tool.

Among other similar software this little Chameleon made me save hours of lifetime because it never crashed on any of my computers. Jump from a project to a web explorer with just simple a click and watch your job on wheels fast and easy integration.

"Positive review for notepad++"

What do you like best?

I enjoy Notepad++'s free utility for an easy to use, easily digestible compiler. It's also a great replacement for a regular notepad program, as it very clearly separates different lines

What do you dislike?

I have no criticisms of this program. It does everything I need it to do, which is quickly debugging and writing Python code

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a free, easy to use compiler or program to write and view code in general. It's compatible with any language you could possibly run into, and also works great as a debugger.

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

I use Notepad++ to write quick lines of Python code to input into an AutoCAD plugin to pull queries for information. It's an easy, free alternative to just writing code in the console. I admittedly do not use it for particularly complicated applications. I am not an expert level or career programmer and only use Python for quick, scripted commands to pull data out of another program. It suits my needs very well as a beginner programmer that has no need for a more robust program. It saves me money over having to purchase another piece of software.

"Notepad++ is AWESOME"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is extremely versatile, especially when working with multiple coding languages. Also, the fact that it keeps previously opened files in a queue is great because I do not have to chase down old scripts if I had left them open in the program.

What do you dislike?

The monokai dark theme does not work properly with R.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Select the coding language right away so that you can take advantage of the highlighting and text suggestions.

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

I write the majority of my SQL scripts within Notepad++ so that I can return to them in the future. I would use it for R as well but since the monokai dark theme does not work properly, I usually write my scripts in RStudio. I have also utilized Notepad++ for training purposes, being able to open multiple files at once to compare and contrast.

"Robust! Flexible! Huge community of users!"

What do you like best?

It's super easy to use.

You can have multiple tabs open at the same time and switch between them.

You can install plugins that allow you to do amazing things. I installed one that enabled me to access my website files through FTP from within the app itself.

What do you dislike?

Switching between tabs with your keyboard shortcuts is counter-intuitive for me. It switches like Windows does based on your most recently used instead of like how many other programs do based on their order in the tab bar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn the features. It may save you a lot of time in ways you wouldn't expect.

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

"Evolution of Windows Notepad"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ it's a text editor that follows the historical Windows Notepad. It's an application specific for people that develop code, and needs the to get the text formatted for an specific programing language.

This application don't have the typical WYSWYG, because it's code oriented, thus there aren't options to blink or underling text.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, it's a great program, easy fast and open source.

What do you like best?

First, I like the fact that a powerful and useful program like this its free. I find great utility in the fact that it opens and identifies almost of kinds of languages ( you can add more with addons) helping you to make changes or even programming without the need to change between different programs. It consumes almost no cpu resources, so you can execute it onmost computers without problems.

What do you dislike?

I dislike not much about it, perhaps the fact that some useful features and such need to be found on the internet because they are not included by default like for example text compare wich I use a lot when programming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend you try it at least, its free, works great and has lots of interesing features that can be of use to all kinds of users.

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity it offers and how easy it is to run and test the code. The ability to set the kind of language you'll be using is also very helpful and something I use to make sure I stay in bounds.

What do you dislike?

The predictive feature can be tweaked more so that the suggestions it gives pertain to the tags we're using. I mostly use it for HTML and for creating websites For example, when I am trying to plug in a background color, it should automatically give me the color chart, or the actual values, like how Dreamweaver does.

It's a great tool to begin coding and to get used to the environment. It also a great way to experiment with all the other languages and get used to the syntax.

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is a free program, like notepad that incorporates Windows os, however enhanced and with more choices. It enables you to alter and make text and alter code. Permits to number the lines, so it will be quicker to discover the mistake or what you need to change later. You can alter the shading code to make it more coherent. It likewise spares the content consequently without having to explicitly hit the spare as catch, an extraordinary help particularly in the event that you come up short on battery on your workstation. The product takes up next to no space and is anything but difficult to install on any PC.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing nothing I didn't like about this software. Its clearness, simplicity and usability make Notepad++ the best free editor available in the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very interesting program to be able to edit any text file, regardless of format, in addition to being able to edit code in numerous programming languages. I also recommend it for all that maniac like me for the order and clarity in the code. Another advantage is that it's a very light program for your PC since it doesn't take up much space and the resources it consumes are very scarce, from the moment you download it until you finish the installation I've only taken a minute, it's also free, this editor has it all.

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

We utilize a lot in our organization, looking at the logs of various testcases. Before Notepad++ we needed to duplicate the outcomes to Excel and after that look at them, which isn't simple. The other utilize we have for it, is the capacity to rapidly alter content records, which encourages us a ton while adjusting some little mistakes that we made in batch documents or scripts.

What do you like best?

Utilizo Notepad++ desde que me lo nombraron por primera verz en la primera clase de programación de la universidad, y desde entronces, lo primero que hago al comprar o formatear un pc es instalar esta herramienta junto con otras básicas.

Me parece la mejor herramienta para edición de código, ya sea en legnuajes HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, XML, SQL....NotePadd++ te ayuda siempre gracias a su grafía y los colores de las palabras reservadas.

No pesa nada, es muy liviano y acepta todos los lenguajes de programación que conozco. Además tiene algunos plugins que te ayudan con alguna funcionalidad que de inicio, la instalación, no trae.

Its my preferred software when it comes to editing. It recognices almost any programming language, and if you dont need some advanced features that the specific language programs have, it will be what you will need most of the time. Its very fast installing and executing and also free.

What do you dislike?

I dont think anyone can dislike anything about Notepad ++, its free and works very good. If you know what your are downloading and what it offers you can dislike.

I recommend everyone to give it a try, it will cover most of the needs of basic text and code editing that you need. If it doesnt, probably you can find an addon that will. And its totally free, so you only lose time trying it.

"Efficient and fast"

What do you like best?

The feature that I would highlight from this editor is the speed and efficiency when handling documents. Its ability to quickly load heavy documents is remarkable, unlike in other products, where software would slow down. It also has a great capacity for personalization, and can even define your own syntax highlighting schemes.

What do you dislike?

What I like the least is the difficulty in handling the user interface. In addition, its style and construction looks old-fashioned, with graphics and usability patterns that are no longer in use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good software, free and with a large community, that will make simple and quick the edition of any text file, in any language.

If a small time is dedicated to customization to the user's liking, then its use will be more comfortable and more agile.

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

What this software contributes to our company is the speed in the management of files, the simplicity of its installation and compatibility with any version of Windows and the fact that it is a free software that has a large community. This makes its use very efficient, reducing time and costs

Carga muy rápido en comparación a otras herramientas de la competencia, apenas consume memoria.

No hay nada que me desagrade especialmente, a veces el completado de texto es erróneo y escribe palabras que no corresponden al coincidir algunas letras.

No hay posibilidad de cambiar el color (a oscuro), lo que para los que estamos acostumbrados a usarlo siempre se hace molesto.

It is a light editor that makes it fast. I have never experienced a delay in this regard. It has a decent highlight code available for various programming languages ​​which makes it attractive to view files quickly. It also has a bit of code completion function. It has more tab functions and also remembers the last files opened after closing the editor. In addition it is the document map feature helps us to view large files by providing an overview on the side. You can also select multiple columns and edit them at the same time.

What do you dislike?

In order to use it like other editors, it should be highly personalized. It is also not ideal for programming because other editors have many more features for use. Its auto-complete function is not as expected and provides general suggestions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very interesting program to be able to edit any text file, regardless of the format, besides being able to edit code in numerous programming languages. Another advantage is that it is a very light program for your PC because it does not take up much space and the resources it consumes are very light, since you download it until you finish the installation, it has only taken a minute, it is also free.

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

We use it for fast editing when some features are not needed and the editing can be done with what notepad offers. Gaining time and efficiency

Esta es una herramienta tan versátil y fácil de usar! Te permite comprobar qué codificación se está utilizando y encubrirla a otra codificación si es necesario.Puedes cambiar la vista para que coincida con el tipo de archivo que está viendo y que los códigos de color variables. Es rápido, fácil de aprender y gratuito! Te permite tener abiertas varias pestañas como si de un navegador se tratase , asi puedes editar multiples ficheros al mismo tiempo , o copiar de un fichero para llevarlo al otro comodamente sin necesidad de tener varias aplicaciones abiertas.

What do you dislike?

No hay nada que no me guste especialmente porque es freeware. Es una poderosa herramienta para arreglar y editar código. Sirve tanto para archivos pequeños como para grandes archivos .log Lo he utilizado en programación , paginas web etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si funciona, úsalo. Gran alternativa a WordPad con muchos plug-ins gratuitos. Asegúrese de tener en cuenta los plug-ins a la hora de determinar si va a utilizar este producto o no.

Es difícil estar en desacuerdo siendo gratis!

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

Resolver la edición de archivos basados en texto de una manera eficiente. La herramienta tiene mucho más avanzado que los editores de texto estándar. Sintaxis coloreada, edición de columnas, resaltado de palabras clave, reemplazo de texto en archivos, búsqueda de texto en archivos (muy superior a la búsqueda de ventanas).

Me ha ayudado a encontrar un error que tenia en un fichero que hacia que una aplicacion no funcionase bien.

"Editor de Texto muy funcional"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ es una aplicación de edición de texto muy completo, si el editor de Documentos de texto que viene por defecto se te queda corto, gracias a esta aplicación podrás rellenar eso que te faltaba, trae numeración de lineas por si deseas buscar una en especifico y no perderte.

También, permite abrir varios documentos a la vez para poder modificarlos sin necesidad de estar cerrando uno u otro para poder utilizarlos, puedes guardar todos los documentos a la vez, buscar palabras entre todos los documentos y muchísimas más funciones que trae esta aplicación y es totalmente gratuito.

What do you dislike?

Hay pocas cosas que me gusten, pero una recomendación que daría seria que se implementara una customización del menú totalmente accesible, de manera que se pudiera modificar todos los apartados que uno desee para utilizar el programa totalmente cómodo a tus necesidades sería un gran punto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pruébalo, es gratis y de código abierto, además, es una aplicación que se actualiza con frecuencia. Si tu empresa utiliza multiples plataformas, puede no ser una buena opción ya que solo cuenta con Windows, pero para el usuario de Windows es imprescindible.

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

" Well-known code development software with many years of experience"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is a code editing software that I have been using throughout my life as a web and cross-platform developer, it is very configurable and incorporates a plugin repository. You can change many of the features of this code editor such as incorporating an FTP control, JSON reader, help programming code. It is a very simple software to use and that occupies very little compared to other code editors.

In addition to all this this code editor is completely free.

What do you dislike?

The problem that has notepad ++ is that it is not available for all types of operating systems at the moment its most functional and real version only works on windows. We can find code editors inspired by notepad ++ and variants of this in linux, but this linux code editor is not entirely functional.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It should be available for Mac and Linux with fully functional versions.

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

In my company notepad ++ has solved above all problems concerning the time of editing by ftp, cost savings, help to interpret code, facilitate the development and configuration of equipment.

"El reemplazo del block de notas"

What do you like best?

La navaja suiza de los Programadores o desarrolladores.

Es lo que tienes que tener siempre en una memoria y el instalador con él ya que es muy versátil, útil e intuitivo ya que permite una síntesis del código mas fácil con su lenguaje relacionado. Cuando no encuetro IDES como para Lua recurro siempre a este magnifico software.

Capacidad para programar en casi cualquier lenguaje. Es de rápida ejecución. No consume mucho espacio. Código Abierto. Es Gratuito.

What do you dislike?

La función autocompletar no es muy eficiente, debes escribir la mayor parte antes de que aparezca la sugerencia, y tampoco puedes ver el resultado hasta después de que haya codificado.

No es posible depurar o verificar errores de sintaxis

Para archivos grandes, se hace difícil buscar por todo el código. La gestión de plugins podría ser mejor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Tiene funciones avanzadas en comparación con el simple bloc de notas normal. Búsqueda de palabras, reemplazo de palabras, numeración de líneas, hay muchas funciones útiles en esta aplicación. Por lo tanto, me gustaría recomendar a mis colegas y amigos que utilicen esta aplicación. Es gratis para descargar e instalar y es muy portátil. Los atajos de teclado también son completamente configurables. Podemos usar todas estas características con facilidad. Aunque tiene algunas peculiaridades, es el mejor editor de código.

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

Podemos usar varios cursores para hacer cambios de código en varios lugares a la vez. El administrador de complementos descarga automáticamente la lista de todos los complementos, incluidos el nombre, la categoría, la versión y la estabilidad. Podemos controlar si las pestañas se alinean vertical u horizontalmente.

"Editor de texto para programación"

What do you like best?

un editor de texto muy sencillo, desde la instalación hasta su uso y que se es perfecto para sustituir al simple notepad de windows. Además es ideal para la programación en código, porque permite el uso de colores para ver el código de una forma más clara y precisa. También permite manejar los archivos en pestañas, lo que hace que sea mucho más intuitivo. Es sin duda un editor de texto ideal para programación web en HTML, Css, Javascript...

What do you dislike?

igual que es muy sencillo para usarlo con ciertos lenguajes, con otros es un engorro porque no puedes ejecutar y probar directamente el código a medida que vas avanzando, por lo que tampoco puedes ver los errores que tienes... Aun así es un editor excelente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

es gratis y facil de instalar. Por probarlo no pierdes nada y veras si te conviene o no.

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

Lo utilizo como editor principal para desarrollos web, ya que es muy sencillo y permite organizar el código de una forma muy clara y entendible para cualquier persona que continue el desarrollo o que participe del mismo. Es excelente para trabajar en equipo.

"Notepad++, simple, effective and useful."

What do you like best?

The best thing to use Notepad ++ is the low memory load it uses, it can be run on any computer and it is very versatile. It allows to execute other more heavy applications of development like any server, or editor in parallel without affecting your performance.

What do you dislike?

What I disliked about Notepad++ is the lack of project management. If you work with several projects at the same time you do not have any manager or view to be able to switch between them in a more intuitive way.

Also. the autocomplete tool is not that good than in others IDE I work with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, for beginners is a good tool. With it's simple interface and light memory usage you can learn the basics of programming or develop without problem.

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

With Notepad++ you and your develop team con work without loading the memory of computers and use it in more heavy applications, like server management or development. Also it is very versatile and its basic functionality can be expanded with plugins.

"El bloc de notas en su máxima expresión"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ es una herramienta indispensable para todo tipo de usuarios, no sólo programadores y gente que por su trabajo necesite un buen editor de texto. Su facilidad de uso, junto con su simpleza a la hora de desarrollar cualquier tarea, lo hace una opción obligada. Es gratuito, se le pueden añadir opciones adicionales y ocupa muy poco espacio en disco. Tiene un buen nivel de actualizaciones. Soporta un buen número de lenguajes de programación, aunque lo puedes usar para cualquier utilidad.

What do you dislike?

No hay nada en contra que comentar. Hay que recordar que es lo que es, es decir, no esperes un herramienta tipo eclipse porque no lo es, simplemente un bloc de notas muy mejorado. Version de 64 bits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No te lo pienses, para cualquier tarea relacionada con edición de texto, Notepad++ es tu mejor herramienta. Totalmente gratuito, fácil de instalar, sencillo de usar y con muchas opciones y añadidos posibles. Lo recomiendo en todos los aspectos.

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

En los niveles mas básicos de programación, lo estamos usando por ejemplo para CSS, ya que nos viene perfecto y necesitábamos algo de poco coste y sencillo. También lo usamos como editor de texto normal a la hora de reemplazar texto o incluso para comparar cambios en un documento conn plugins que podemos añadir.

What do i like the most about notepad++

+ First of all it works like charm on windows , with a very low resource usage

+ Macros recording is great tool , i frequently use it. which make selecting specific words or characters easier and reduce repetitive work. so you save so much time.

+ keep your non saved work (texts) in memory , so you don't have to worry about loosing your data when closing your opened document

+ Huge List of additional plugins that do great automated jobs

+ Customized interface and text highlight when editing C++ / PHP / CSS / HTML / Powershell / SQL / XML ... Which is of a great help for Developers.

What do you dislike?

the 2 main thing i don't like about Notepad++ is it's Old school design , and when dealing with very large files 1G+ texts it start to hung , it could be more optimized for large text/CSV editing .

Recommendations to others considering the product

i Would recommend Using notepad++ for simple file editing / scripting / coding and web development it's very easy to use , but when having very large CSV or txt files to edit , large databases for example i would look for an other software !

"Notepad is a very good tool to edit all kind of files"

What do you like best?

I like a lot Notepad++ because I can edit all the files that I use everyday. Also, I think one of the best funcionalities is recording macros to edit a file. I use this everyday. Another important point of this tool, is that it is absoulety free.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you can't change the format of the font. It is extremely simple and you can't format to your files .txt. Maybe, work in columns could be easier than now. I use this funcionality in others text editors like UltraEdit and it was a little bit easier

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think the look and feel of this applicattion needs a new design

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

I use this tool to edit all my files everyday. I use to take notes about my meetings or, for exemple, to edit some file that have a lot of registers. It is so difficutl if you want to do this one to one by youtself. Macros function is very useful to do this actions for you

"Notepad++ a complete text editor"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is a text editor that you can use for any programming language, since it recognizes a large number of programming languages.

You can install plugings to work more comfortably.

It is also very you can configure the design with several themes to leave it to your liking.

There is an option to see a list of functions or methods to locate them quickly.

What do you dislike?

The bad thing about Notepad ++ is that it's a very generic text editor, so you lose functions with respect to other text editors more oriented to code programming, for example, it hasn't the code window on the right side that allows you to go to parts of the code quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IIf you are looking for a free text editor that be easy to use and dynamic, notepad++ is one of the best options.

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

I use notepad++ for open any file to edit quickly.

"Useful tool to view/edit large .txt file"

What do you like best?

It has almost similar features as Ultraedit in terms of viewing and editing .txt files. It is a free installation and does not cost any to use it. It also offers column mode to edit, which is very useful and convenient for editing large datasets. Compared to Excel, it takes less time to open a dataset file (.dat, .csv, .txt), which can then be imported into data-process software, such as Matlab. Unlike the normal Notepad, it has more built-in features for editing, for an instance, users can just double click the words and find all of the selections in a second.

What do you dislike?

Since it is a note-editing tool, it does not offer some fancy edits, like highlighting or art fonts. Other than that, I could not find anything I do not like it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use and very usefully for editing datasets via its column mode;

No cost at all for using this product.

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

Open and look through my datasets for research projects and sometimes for keeping notes.

"Cornerstone of programming learning"

What do you like best?

Notepadd++ is one of the most famous program editor in history. Big advantages of that app is possibility to easy find/change some things in lot of files or places of project. Other nice thing is that Notepad++ is totally free. This is not my main tool for code development but, I treat that tool like some kind of sandbox or place when I can copy some part of code for some time.

What do you dislike?

It is very hard to find disadvantages of that tool. This is still the same good tool for code development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my opinion this is a good idea to have some experience with Notepad++ because this is one of most common tool to edit code. Sometimes this is only tool which are available on production server, when developer needs to change something for example in configurration or makes some hot fix.

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

Usually treat it like sandbox or clipboard, so it helps me a lot in a different situations.
