Notepad++ Is A Proper Text Editor

Notepad++ Is A Proper Text Editor

Windows default "notepad.exe" is not, never ever use windows notepad.exe. Never use windows wordpad.exe to edit text files.

Notepad++ Homepage, Notepad++ Downloads page and Notepad++ User Manual. Also Notepad++ Github official repository.

In PMC editing community when most of the tutorials say use proper text editor it means exactly that, a proper text editor instead of the garbage that comes with default windows install. Notepad++ is a proper text editor.

Notepad++ is free and open source text editor, it gets frequent updates. Has all the basic stuff like dark mode, syntax highlighting for various programming languages and scripting languages, C++, HTML, PHP, etc.

Notepad++ v8.6.4 has been released.
2024-02-20

In Notepad++ version 8.6.3, a regression was identified and subsequently fixed. When two documents are displayed side by side, clicking into the unfocused content no longer activates it as the current document. This regression has been resolved in version 8.6.4. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Notepad++ v8.6.5 has been released.
2024-03-30

To address a performance issue of “Replace All” in previous version 8.6.4, Notepad++ no longer triggers SCN_MODIFIED and other Scintilla notifications during the “Replace All” action. Consequently, some plugins that rely on Scintilla’s notifications may malfunction after a “Replace All” operation. To rectify this regression, a new notification called NPPN_GLOBALMODIFIED has been implemented in Notepad++ v8.6.5. Plugin developers should monitor NPPN_GLOBALMODIFIED alongside SCN_MODIFIED, if SCN_MODIFIED is already monitored in the plugin. For additional information about NPPN_GLOBALMODIFIED, please refer to this link: https://community.notepad-plus-plus.org ... tification

The session loss problem and the data loss due to the power outages issue are also addressed in this release.

There are more enhancements & bug-fixes.
