"Not very useful to non Anglophones"

June 15, 2007  |  By timtak

 |  Version: Notepad++ 4.0.1

Pros

It looked very powerful and clean and simple too but it was no use to me for the reasons explained below.

Cons

It seems to me that it is pretty useless to those that are writing in non Englilsh ascii encoded languages since it does not have the ability to change between encodings, and there are a lot of encodings used.

For example most Microsoft software uses a non Internet compatible encoding so it is important to be able read write and convert. In the Japanese language case it would be nice to be able to convert between MS's Shift JIS, and the two internet standards UFT-8 and EUC-JP, but Notepad++ does not seem capable of doing this. Those using Eastern European languages, Chinese and any other two byte language will all be faced with the same problem, and not find Notepad++ all that useful (unless they are just writing in program code, or in their own language in unicode only).

The Japanese free text editor Sakura does provide multiple encodings and encoding conversion functionality, so most Japanese users are happy, but being an anglophone I would have preferred a text editor with an English interface. Alas, that was not to be. I am uninstalling Notepad++.

"Simple but effective"

September 19, 2007  |  By Jon Hart

 |  Version: Notepad++ 4.0.1

Pros

It doesn't try to take over your life, it just adds some much needed functionality to the basic notepad.

Cons

Lose the fonts. This is a text editor not a word processor.

It is light like notepad but has more option. It can do almost everything you could need to do with a TXT\Prog Language editor, it has a functional and comfortable interface and could maintain open contemporarily multiple files with the label system of Firefox and IE7.
