    "Amazing Tool for HTML"

    July 29, 2013  |   By Monia1234

    Version: Notepad++ 6.4.3

    Pros

    It can be the best tool for me to write HTML code. It will automatically pair the code and you will find it is very easy to find the error.

    Cons

    Not found yet.

    "Nice program"

    July 25, 2013  |   By rhinotedin

    Version: Notepad++ 6.4.2

    Pros

    Very easy to use. Is frequently updated.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say about it.

    Summary

    I've been using Notepad++ for a couple of years. One of the primary uses is to strip formatting characters from text before loading the text into HTML files.

    "Easy to use, great text editor"

    July 2, 2013  |   By PSSnyder

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.3

    Pros

    Notepad ++ has a basic, simple to use, interface and works great for editing every popular text file. After many years of hoping that automated HTML and code writers, the spaghetti code seems to be getting worse. So I have pretty much gone back to manual coding, Notepad ++ makes it easy.

    Cons

    I would like the syntax checking to be a bit more robust, and there are a few minor weaknesses like manual refresh of local files, but nothing major that I have found.

    "Works Great!"

    June 27, 2013  |   By Roundman-66

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.3

    Pros

    Works great when used to make Web pages in HTML. Elements, attributes & values are color coded when all characters are entered correctly. If you forget an " or put a + instead of = the color remains black until the problem is corrected. I have been taking intro a class on building Web pages and NotePadd++ is what we are using as our editor. It also works well for CSS. It will save document in many other forms and is much easier to word with than regular note pad.

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Summary

    Software has worked great so fare. I have been using it for about a month and plan on continuing to use it at home & work. You can not beat the price! I would recommend this to any one looking for a free note pad editor, the color coding is wonderful!

    June 7, 2013  |   By Zelah-Hutchinson

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.3

    Pros

    Nice interface makes good use of screen space.
    Tabs for files you are editing can be left open between sessions.
    Full path of file is prominent in title bar.
    User configurable syntax highlighting works well.

    Cons

    User configurable syntax folding can not be configured to end the fold on a blank line.

    "Great product"

    May 19, 2013  |   By HarryC59

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.3

    Pros

    I don't use it much so it's hard to really review it. But the times I have used it, it does a very good job for what I need it to do.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. Like I said I don't use it a great deal but it does what I need it to do fine.

    "Not as good as the XP version"

    April 28, 2013  |   By oprlvr68

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.2

    Pros

    Easy download

    Cons

    Does not function like the XP version
    Touchy to use
    Not at all user-friendly
    Took great measure getting used to

    Summary

    I understood the old Windows Notepad was this updated download.. how incorrect I was. What ended up downloading was not the basic Windows Notepad I was familiar with, but this high tech Wordpad equivalent which included graphs, rulers, etc. Won't be using it anymore. Quite disappointed.

    "They took a step backward!"

    April 12, 2013  |   By cimofj2

    Version: Notepad++ 6.3.2

    Pros

    Once it finishes loading, it works like it always has before.

    Cons

    Since Version 6.0, every newer version has loaded slower & has NOT DISPLAYED the Toolbar!

    Summary

    Until these 2 problems are fixed, I will be using it LESS! They need to start back at Version 6.0!
