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.

No file-browsing options (e.g. like ps-pad)

"Easy & just works. This is the one you want."

November 25, 2012  |  By jkirk1626

 |  Version: Notepad++ 6.2.2

Pros

Just works.

Cons

The only pain is that to set Notepad++ as the default nfo viewer, you have to to set Windows temporarily to show hidden and protected files in order to access the path.

Summary

This has the top rank for a reason. This is what you're looking for if you acquired a movie by torrent and are curious what's in the nfo files.

"Still the best text editor"

November 24, 2012  |  By netsentry

 |  Version: Notepad++ 6.2.2

Pros

Compact, excellent color coding and indenting, good range of language support, tabbed interface, and it does unicode -- important for the language I deal with. It is unobtrusive and light.

Cons

I wish it had a little more code correction / debugging, but that is beyond the scope of the program most likely.

Summary

There's no reason to waste your time with TextPad or the others. This is by far the most usable.
