In connection with my main job, I often communicate with text documents, and in particular with .txt files. Since the standard notebook installed on all computers with Windows system does not satisfy me with my requirement, I began to look for a more convenient and multifunctional alternative.
The first caught sight of Notepad ++. From that moment I began many times more effectively fulfilling the technical task of my employer.
All thanks to innovative features that are available only in expensive and in some places not very convenient Word from Microsoft.
If you are working with tabular text, then it was extremely natural to detect the function of vertical selection. (Alt + LBM)
The program also allows you to format the created text in various encodings, colors and fonts.
And the macro function will precisely allow you to do the required cyclical work in the shortest possible time.
And all this and not only that - completely free!
The only minus that I found is the complete lack of support for the tables. Just today, I had to create with the help of text symbols a similarity of a table in Notepad ++, because there is no built-in table generator. For the rest, I am very pleased with the product.
As I wrote earlier, I am engaged in freelancing, and in particular - writing texts to order: abstracts, theses and many other things. Therefore, my vital need was to find a decent text editor with which I could quickly complete a customer’s order.
