Editors' Review

+

Notepad Plus Plus is a Notepad replacement with an eye toward programmers, although it should also appeal to the casual user who wants a cross between Notepad and WordPad. Notepad Plus Plus has some noticeable differences from WordPad. Support for tabs is key, letting users manage different documents simultaneously. Line-numbering is important, too, a feature that nobody mucking about in C should be without.

The interface is much simpler compared with some of its competitors. A familiar row of icons with their mouse-over labels sits at the top, and one row of tabs is just below that. The rest of the screen is made of nothing but pure white space. All the coding tools live in the menu bar, with some represented on the toolbar. Users can compile and run macros, convert text to Hex, submit directly to W3C for validation, launch in Firefox and IE, and more. There's also a built-in spell-checker.

Choosing between Notepad Plus Plus and NoteTab Light probably will depend as much on layout as anything else. Although, forgive the pun, notably Notepad Plus Plus can not autoreplace Notepad, it's still an excellent Notepad replacement.

"Highly recommended"

November 01, 2011  |  By martin.hensley

 |  Version: Notepad++ 5.9.6

Pros

Line numbers!
Multiple tabs make copying and pasting between documents easier.

Cons

None that I've found so far.

Summary

If you do any web programming, the simple addition of line numbers makes life much easier. Now, if I get a report of an error on line "x", it is simple to open it in Notepad++ and go directly to that line. When you are overly busy, the little things count.
