"Good but better if it could be installed and run as a program file"

April 04, 2008  |  By gavinmun

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

Great for programming of all sorts. Text highlighting for many languages. Good allround program for free.

Cons

Annoying as it is a straight exe file that runs straight from explorer. Would be better as a program file which could execute multiple windows.

"I have permanently replaced Notepad with Notepad2"

January 02, 2008  |  By FlappingCrane

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

Syntax highlighting is what makes this little app so invaluable for me. You can quickly scan configuration files thanks to the header highlighting; and having something I can run from a flash drive to edit script files on different computers has been wonderful. I have replaced the default Notepad on my system with Notepad2.

Cons

Not really a complaint, just something for you to keep in mind: Syntax highlighting is not good enough to replace higher-end code editors for serious programmers.

"Invaluable"

April 12, 2007  |  By Delta100

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

This is one of the best software products that money can't buy. It's fast, has a great tab interface, handles all kind of formats, including UFT-8, handles all kinds of languages, from ADA to XML, and features that go on and on, and you can read about elsewhere. The bottom line is that it works and it works well. If you're living with Notepad or a mediocre text editor, then you won't know how you ever lived without Notepad++.

Cons

There's nothing I don't like. I do wish it had a toolbar specific to HTML for dropping in tags, but it isn't specifically an HTML development tool, although it sure goes a long way.

"More than I expected"

February 23, 2007  |  By dons333

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

The name Notepad2 doesn't invoke the right expectation. I would expect Windows Notepad with a couple of enhancements. This is actually a really nice scripting editor with color highlighting for many languages.

Cons

It would be nice if the find and replace functions were combined. But, don't let that stop you from at least trying this nice little, light weight, editor.

"One of the best pieces of software I've ever had"

October 03, 2006  |  By revengeofthecow

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

Sure, it's not the tiniest Notepad replacement out there, but it's still really small. You have to be working on a box from about 1992 for it to be significantly slower than Notepad. Now, Notepad is the greatest program bundled with Windows. Small and fast, it's ideal for coders. Notepad2, though, goes a step farther and specifically caters to coders with syntax highlighting and the like. It makes it so much easier to read my code with this program. Highly recommended.

Cons

I guess some people may be put off by the lack of an installation program, but don't let that faze you. If you code a lot like I do, it's an invaluable tool to make you more organized.

"Handy for source codes, but not for a notepad replacement"

March 24, 2006  |  By kewwin

 |  Version: Notepad2 1.0.12

Pros

Syntax highlighting for many languages, brace matching, zooming, line numbers with bookmarks.. All the things one may need while coding :) Actually, it is very like my favourite SciTE editor.

Cons

The application has 500kb, it is not very portable to a USB drive and consumes a lot of resources. Good notepad replacement should be more light-weight than this.
