"Notepad++ the effective application!"

What do you like best?

It is extremely fast and easy to format texts or make small changes in your code; it is continually improved by its team of developers and also includes syntax highlighting for specific programming languages ​​that allow for improved readability. It is very light, its interface is simple and the complements of third parties allow it to be better beyond its standard state. It's totally free.

What do you dislike?

One of the negative aspects is that it is limited only to Windows, excluding in some way Linux and Mac users, besides that I do not like the way in which you get and install the add-ons; Additionally, it lacks certain functions of higher order integrated development environments or code editors, such as Visual Studio Code, git integration or other version control tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If a quick solution is needed to a line of code in any website, Notepad++ can contribute and even use the syntax highlighting to make the code much more readable, it is very competent, and since it works in many environments, it offers profresionales results, the additional costs do not exist to use it because no licenses are paid.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is used in Lion Agency to perform daily tasks, specifically writing programs or analyzing texts or log files, with the help of add-ons it can also be used to write programs in different languages. In addition to being used for fast editions, converting code between different encodings.

"Editor de texto pequeño pero poderoso"

What do you like best?

Estamos ante un editor de texto que a pesar de no ser tan pesado tiene las herramientas necesarias para poder procesar desde simples cadenas de texto hasta lenguajes de programacion, Notepad++ destaca por si sencilles, interfaz amigable y alta compatibilidad con muchos de los lenguajes de programacion del mercado, es posible mejorar aun mas su funcionalidad haciendo uso de complementos o plugins ya sea para mejorar el entorno grafico, autocompletar codigo, se puede agregar funcionalidad con el sistema android, entre muchos mas. Otra de las caracteristicas que me gustado es el resaltado de texto segun el lenguaje que se escriba, es posible ajustar el tipo de fuente y tamaño segun el gusto del usuario. Una gran funcion que trae el software es el autoguardado a medida que se va transcribiendo el programa va guardando progresivamente esto con la finalidad de evitar perdida de los datos.

What do you dislike?

El programa es compatible con lenguajes de programacion pero en ciertas ocasiones resulta un poco limitado para llevar proyectos grandes, es recomendado para analisis de texto y pruebas varias.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puedo recomendar a todos este programa posee grandes cualidades para ser un software totalmente gratis, esta lleno de grandes funciones y es posible llevar sus textos de manera segura y ordenada.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Es un gran programa de edición de texto"

What do you like best?

Es una gran herramienta que es fácil de usar y es una aplicación muy ligera con una interfaz de usuario sencilla. Podemos abrir varios archivos de edición de texto en un solo bloc de notas y puede deslizarse fácilmente entre ellos, es compatible con una serie de lenguajes de programación como C++, sql, HTML, etc. También podemos añadir plugins como convertidores, impresoras, etc .También tiene características como ajuste de texto, Autocorrección, etc. También podemos usar breakpoint, resaltar el texto para marcar algo, tiene un sistema de búsqueda avanzado como podemos buscar en todos los archivos que se abren en el bloc de notas con una sola vez seleccionando buscar en todos los archivos. Si nos olvidamos de guardar el archivo, entonces automáticamente se guarda en la ubicación temporal y luego podemos ir y guardar los archivos. También podemos comprobar qué archivos han sido cerrados recientemente y podemos comprobar fácilmente en qué línea estamos, ya que tiene la línea de número en el extremo izquierdo. Cuando haya una actualización externa del archivo y ese archivo se abra en notepad++, entonces tan pronto como abramos notepad recibiremos la notificación de que este archivo ha sido modificado.

What do you dislike?

Es muy adecuado para html, css, php, pero no para lenguajes de programación como java, python.it no puede manejar archivos de texto de gran tamaño. Hasta que se instala un complemento, no muestra un error de sintaxis en el programa. Una de las cosas que no me gusta es que no tenga más funcionalidades. La aplicación suele ser un poco lenta y consumiendo recursos cuando estoy programando grandes cadenas de texto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ no requiere recomendaciones, es una de las mayores herramientas utilizadas para la edición en todas las industrias de pequeñas y grandes empresas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estamos usando para editar todos nuestros archivos de texto ya que tiene una gran interfaz amigable para el usuario. Así podemos abrir el archivo SQL en notepad++ y abrirlo en sql para comprobar en qué código de línea se está rompiendo, lo que hace más fácil de comprobar.

Por lo tanto, recomiendo este producto sobre cualquier otro editor de texto para estos propósitos.

"Your Office and Daily Partner !"

What do you like best?

the best part of notepad ++ is it gives you freedom to write , in whatever language you want .Earlier people need to hang around with drawbacks of native notepad.Being a software engineer I need to be linguistic when it come s to programming languages and hanging around with different IDE's is not fun.

here notepad ++ comes to my rescue.apart from this , it saves the state of your previous work hence saving you from vulnerability of ,loosing files or updated docs.

What do you dislike?

since I am a regular user , till date I didn't find any such drawbacks but still as we say "Moon is also has spots" . First of all, some times t really lags , when working simultaneously with different docs and applications.

Secondly, it creates difficulty while saving a file and changing its type on runtime , that means most of the times I need to change the file name and type after it gets saved in Txt format by default.

Recommendations to others considering the product

use it, use it use it ! its a saviour and one of the best text editors i cam across.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

as I said I am software engineer thus , my 90% of work is regarding coding.Thus , while configuration of applications , server side scripting, application config files, even practicing competitive coding all areas are pervasive in atmosphere of notepad++ .

also in my leisure time I like writing in notepad ++ because of its font and color specifications which gives it a very different place among text editors.

What do you like best?

The best thing I like is the suggestions for each programming language I code that gives me thought of what to use in that specific situation. It is quick and reliable when contrasted with other content tools.it is effortlessly of utilization notwithstanding for bigger records.

Significantly, it has all the more free plug-ins and effectively usable for hands-on lab learning projects. It is only something beyond a content editor.

What do you dislike?

I like it especially aside from when source code of an excessive number of line is opened, it ends up lethargic or closes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommended this, I have been using this from last 4 years it is very resourceful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

uniquely I utilized it to code in xml files.it featured catchphrase of xml language which I like the most.I have discovered it profoundly creative for speedy touch-ups in code. Likewise its help for a wide assortment of languages truly makes it an ordinary use editor.

"A significant text editor with great features."

What do you like best?

I like how useful Notepad ++ is with the large number of repositories and elements that increase performance and efficiency in development, our team uses Notepad daily to make corrections in web content, reviews in .log files, review of judgments in php and systems development.

Over time it has integrated notable advances that manage to give it that relevance so that it is considered an indispensable tool and that can work hand in hand with other devices on your computer.

What do you dislike?

Going with this application has been a great reward for me and my colleagues, since since we used it we have not found any flaws in its use, even when we have some problems with the development of some code or element we go to the extensions that Notepad has and This can solve our problems, it's great that you have integrations to follow the directories of your sites or your systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can feel safe managing your codes and verify the structures of your syntax with this application, Notepad ++ costs nothing since it is free and open source, you can use it on different devices. It has many add-ons and extensions that will improve your development experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad ++ is present for each edition you want to make and its use is so essential to verify .html / .php / .xml / .log / Js files since it has a highlighted auto engine that improves and benefits the reading and monitoring of the syntax that you have elaborated. Customize and adapt Notepad is as simple as its interface, time has passed and still has a fairly simple aesthetic but meets the demands of each user, taking advantage of it is a free tool has many features that complement your stage of development.

Its lightness does not interfere with the process you perform as well as other text editors. It has a large community that brings great advances to achieve a better performance of the application.

" Plain text editor Notepad ++"

What do you like best?

A plain text editor tool is a very useful application for any network administrator since in a configuration in a main computer as a core it is necessary to make the configuration in a plain text editor where it enriches the text according to its editor. Notepad ++ helps us apply our configuration as .txt documents. Also when viewing backup files that are extracted on the computers to see their configuration this tool is excellent for these practices.

What do you dislike?

Of this type of tools of their basic uses there are not many things that can not be agreed on are very few. It is a very basic tool very useful and I have no major complaint with respect to it I use it constantly and I have not had problems of memory consumption not processor consumption.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

with the help of this tool I open the backup files generated by the network equipment to re-configure the equipment in .txt format and re-paste the configuration in the console.

" Plain text editor with Notepad ++"

What do you like best?

With the Notepad tool it helps me a lot to paste and copy my settings that notepad is a plain text edits where it does not add any special character that alters the true writing of the text. With this tool I write my settings that I will apply to my network equipment and any reminders that I have to configure or personal reminder.

What do you dislike?

One of the disadvantages of the notepad text editor is the time it takes to load some settings in plain text either because of the length of the text or because of the high number of characters that the tool presents. But in addition to that the tool presents a good functionality in my opinion and very useful in the day to day work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve the appearance to the graphic interface

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps me store personal reminders as configurations of different equipment. And open backup that come in .txt documents.

"An excellent and classic text editor."

What do you like best?

A classic that accompanies me for many years and I like to have it available on any device for its remarkable interpretation of programming languages, contains an autocomplete and highlighted almost perfect syntax. It also has a complete library of extensions to improve it and adapt it to your needs. This is a good place to elaborate scenarios with your Javacript, PHP, C ++, SQL, XML codes, among others.

What do you dislike?

Notepad ++ stands out for its easy handling and exploits the performance of its users with the basics of its interface and access to its functions. However, it lacks a modern appearance that could be improved with the application of a future update.

This tool complies with the established, based on my experience I have had a great journey with this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the right tool for every developer who wants to undertake a project or perform tests on its code, it is light and very easy to configure, plus you can adapt it to your needs so that it interprets the code you want to use. It is recommended that you have an internet connection to obtain the news and updates with improvements provided by your development team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad ++ is my favorite workplace for layout, edit sites and build codes. Thanks to this we can integrate more collaborators to our projects, under the idea of ​​developing test environments to integrate them into more complex code editors and with powerful compilers that gives us good results. The environment has also given us a varied adaptation to build Html, PHP, XML files, which has given great results, which is why we feel satisfied when using it.

"It is the most organized notebook of every worker"

What do you like best?

I like it for its prompt saving of every writing that is done. The most likely thing about this tool is that it is used more than anything in each text read by the customer service operators. But nevertheless. Each management that represents each agent will be saved under this application by the automatic saving feature. Also the graphic form in how the information of the notepad is presented is quite friendly

What do you dislike?

I do not like it because it is very basic in how the tool is presented, because this application to be managed by executive staff is not feasible

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fully recommended to any management that you want to save automatically as a dictation of words that serve to structure the way of speaking before the attention of clients

"It is one of the simplest applications to read codes"

What do you like best?

I have a tendency to find darker themes for coding. It is an undefined code editor with all the features, such as add-ons that support more than 50 programming and scripting languages. I like to be able to use RegEx Find and Replace to remove HTML tags from online content copied and pasted on the network.

What do you dislike?

It is no longer necessary to perform a syntax evaluation or a compiler. It requires general updates, which are not mandatory, but ask. One factor that I do not like is design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to use a simple code editor, you can select it. Installation plugins could significantly improve the sets of functions. If you want to paint with large documents, Notepad ++ is your friend and is too loose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can use for back-end encoding and at the same time frontend encoding such as JavaScript or HTML. Due to low requirements, it is compatible with most systems. With Notepad ++ we are able to quickly review the codes and maintain many images within the change.

"Mostly Website Work "

What do you like best?

I really like the visual layout and how that helps me navigate the page. I have used other code editors that didn’t work like that. But then, I’ve been using Notepad++ for so long now, I really don’t know what else is out there. I guess I am just very comfortable with it and have no need to look at other editors.

Also, I really like that I can access and edit my online files from within the program’s built in FTP client.

What do you dislike?

Ok, that’s a tough question because I can’t think of anything I’ve ever had trouble with. I don’t do much heavy coding, so I haven’t pushed it very far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. I’m not a heavy coder, but I use this software off and on throughout the year. I’ve never had any problems with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it mostly for editing PHP pages. On rare occasion I will write some JAVA bits with Notepad++, but I have other software I use for that.

"Notepad++ review"

What do you like best?

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!

What do you dislike?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

-

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

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.

"Best Text Editor I used till date"

What do you like best?

The best thing I like is the suggestions for every programming language I code that gives me an idea of what to use in that particular scenario. It is very fast and reliable when compared to other text editors. It is easy to find and replace all the occurrences of a word and it is with ease of use even for larger files.

What do you dislike?

Some of the suggestions were missing in the previous update for one programming language that I coded recently. Else there is nothing much to dislike because one will get to know after using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software to both learners and regular coders because learners get to know various new languages, syntax. So it is easy for them to remember as it gives suggestions. It helps for both front end and back end development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a programmer I need to use a text editor to code and my choice is always Notepad++. It is installed in all the systems that I use. It helps me in auto-completion of code.

"Notepad++ A fast and simple text editor"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ has always felt "right". I love the wide range of extensions available that allow me to customize my experience as I see fit. What I like most about notepad ++ is that it stays out of my way. Do not try to do too much, but rather notepad ++ is happy to provide a great text editing experience with fast loading times and an environment that is very comfortable. I have edited incredibly long scripts using notepad ++ and somehow I prefer it to Visual Studio when I do similar works. Search and replace functionality in notepad ++ is absolutely excellent and easy to use. It's amazing to me that free software is so well polished.

What do you dislike?

There are almost no things that I do not like. It does what it proposes and does it well. It can be difficult to find the plugin you need because there are many that offer similar functionality. If there was a little more community, it would be known which plugins that are available may be more useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad ++ is a good tool to manage text, transform it and edit it quickly. If you are looking for a simple but useful tool, Notepad ++ is good for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many times I need to code fast short programs (java, php, c, scripts) and Notepad ++ to make it easy and fast. The capabilities to edit, validate and execute code are complete. Some plugins (like json analizer) are awesome. Sometimes I need to make a presentation, and the simple zoom mode function is very useful and saves my day.

"Notepad ++ is perfect for quick notes and editing"

What do you like best?

- The correct syntax and spelling are simply great. It has a tab interference that facilitates the multiple edition of several files at the same time, since the software is full of features and functions.

What do you dislike?

- It works exclusively in the Microsoft Windows environment. I would have to look for tutorials with many steps for this. I feel that you have few options to edit the text, it should be able to be more customizable in this aspect and thus be able to highlight parts of the code or even add labels.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Make sure you install the context menu so you can right click on any file to open it in Notepad ++. Notepad is a great product, which is available for free. I highly recommend it, I have been using it for a while and it has been one of the few programs that I use daily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- It is better to do it in many ways. Mainly, using it to edit XML in a clean and easy way. With Notepad ++, I can easily delete them.

"My opinion about Notepad++"

What do you like best?

This text editor is a credo for every programmer, you can have a list of text handlers and still have or even prefer Notepad ++, its minimalist interface complements and lets see its good side when highlighted, clarity in your code you want to have Quick startup of the application and plugin support i used it for XML and helps me it with highlighting the xml

What do you dislike?

Not sure that there is much to dislike Some of the languages are not showing the keyword with different color. Can't open an entire folder and see a folder tree

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ is a great solution not only for people from the IT industry but also for beginners their adventure with programming, so I highly recommend it, the more so that it is a completely free solution You should use Notepad++ because Notepad hasn't changed in years and is lagging behind with features. I recommend to use notepad++ to those who are using notepad or other editors for text editing and coding as it provides the user friendly services to the user

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Notepad ++, Every developers dream."

What do you like best?

I learnt about Notepad ++ from one of my friends and I cannot regret the choice of using it. The best thing about it is, although it is an open source software and free, it contains solid and standard features as well as a fully customizable user interface. Importantly, it has more free plug-ins and easily usable for hands-on lab learning projects. It is just more than just a text editor.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about it, is its design. Also, its plug-ins management should be improved. Lacking a search option, finding plugins is unnecessarily cumbersome even if they download and install quickly

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is more than just a text editor. It is an open source software and therefore it will not cost you a dime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad has helped me build both small and big projects and it has never disappointed. Beneath its rather plain exterior hides a powerful, customizable code editor with many useful features that supports a multitude of programming languages.

"Notepad ++, a text editor that does not leave you."

What do you like best?

This text editor is a credo for every programmer, you can have a list of text handlers and still have or even prefer Notepad ++, its minimalist interface complements and lets see its good side when highlighted, clarity in your code you want to have. Its functions in each update are extended in the environment. You can feel totally satisfied with this editor.

What do you dislike?

Within the integrations is somewhat limited, but you can not have everything. Maybe with these integrations this would have to have a cost and you would even find a heavier package when it comes to integrating it into your team. Its multiplatform support does not stop essential if you are using another operating system or another device. It is easy to use and free of charge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

At no cost you can have it and start coding, your updates are increasingly accurate, since the time I have been using it both business and personal, its features have been a complement to my needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently in this text editor, we perform induction in programming, initial developments in Javascript, PHP, HTML, this ends up being fundamental for the course and students become familiar with a trusted friend since childhood. Notepad ++ will have at hand a powerful compiler that can see any error within your code.

"Super light text editor, I use it every day, totally recommended"

What do you like best?

There are 2 things that I like about Notepad ++ 1 is the search tool, and 2 multiple tabs, it allows me to work on several projects at the same time, and best of all the PC does not suffer, the program is super light and almost no consumes resources.

What do you dislike?

I have not had problems with Notepad plus plus I have nothing to say here.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best of Notepad ++ are the plugins, I recommend you see the list of available plugins, there are for all tastes and needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Notepad ++ does not consume all the IDE memory like other programs, it reads my heaviest files and it allows me to have several tabs open without having to open another window, I move faster because I have everything at hand: notes, data and information to corroborate or compare when I need it.

"More than just a Text Editor"

What do you like best?

-Offered with a GPL License and hence free

-Lots of free plug-ins

-Easily usable for hands-on lab learning projects

-Spell-checker

-Text comparison tool

-Syntax Highlighting and Code Folding for various programming languages like javascript, typescript, XML, HTML, Java, C#. The same feature is highly customizable by users too.

-Perl Compatible Regular Expression Search/Replace

-Multi-tab environment

-Cached unsaved documents. No loss of data for accidentally closing the app.

-Hugely customizable GUI

-Auto-completion and very primitive intellisense like (word and function completion, function parameters hint)

-Zoom in and zoom out

-Very efficient in opening and editing large documents (even more than 20 mb).

-Bookmarking feature

What do you dislike?

As a text editor nothing can be expected more. But the irritating and weird aspect is that lots of features/plugins are not available for x64 version of the same software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please use the x86 version of the software to exploit its features fully

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File comparison, XML editing, HTML editing, daily text editing needs, record keeping, sticky notes

"Notepad++ is a must"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ is very user friendly and easy to use. The indentation feature and especially the feature where we can close the editor and reopen and it will still have the unsaved data. This feature is very handy.It is very light and the user experience is good.

What do you dislike?

There is no way to check the word count. There are very few options for text editing. I feel notepad++ is more like a code editor than it is as a text editor. I don't like this behavior. It should support both code editing and text editing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is probably the best editor for saving short code snippets or taking notes. Go for it if you want a good user experience and light application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use notepad to save code snippets and take notes during meetings. That way it is very handy. The biggest benefit I have realized is that, whenever I am in a hurry, I tend to close the notepad++ by mistake. Fortunately in notepad++, unsaved data will be retained when I open the editor next time. This has saved me in so many instances.

"light text editor"

What do you like best?

Loads very fast, has inbuilt syntax highlighting for most languages. Tabbed interface, excellent search interface.

Uses very few system resources.

Remembers opened files between restarts.

Column mode editing is excellent for editing tabular data. Customisable syntax highlighting and folding.

For editing game ini files & other config/plain text files this application is a must. Vastly superior to the bundled text editor for Windows.

Has a robust plugin system with a plethora of community supported plugins.

If you can't have Vim - use the next best thing, Notepad++

What do you dislike?

Maybe make it a bit easier to customize my interface. But not really an issue

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend everyone to use notepad ++ because it is a free and really powerful text editor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Parsing large text log files that would make notepad choke. It has proven itself time and again by providing a familiar and easy interface with powerful tools and features such a regex searching and patter matching to find instances of text across one or more files and count the number of instances

"program to create, edit, modify and shape all types of files"

What do you like best?

Notepad ++ is fast and does not require a lot of resources to work on your computer. It allows you to choose the language you are using to write code, it allows you to select more than one line at a time and edit it and

It helps you to write in an easy way to read. They are some of the features that I like most about this program.

It facilitates the accomplishment of repetitive tasks like modification of text, copy, and paste or search data in the code.

It allows to edit any extension, such as csv, html, css, js files ... You can set the encoding so that it does not change the characters.

It is also a program that supports adding plugins to add new features.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I did not like about this program is that it does not add the functionality of formatting the code you are dealing with. You have to manually add a plugin that does this.

This program has many updates that are sometimes incompatible with the plugins you have installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to any professional in any sector because it is a very versatile program that serves both to program and to only edit text files or excel. It really is a good program and it's free

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program in my work to edit any type of file, to make changes to excels, or to create new files for the development of web pages. The truth is that it is very useful and helps to make faster tasks more repetitive, or that involve modification of many lines.

"Perfect Coding Application for Developers and Coders - Notepad++"

What do you like best?

Worth application to code or to program in an easy way!!

Notepad++ is an application, specially for developers which helps to code for any program whether it is in C language, C++, Java or evne in HTML & CSS. This application helps the developers to find bugs and errors while writing their code in this application after or before running the program also. Even it is very easy and user friendly tool for non-technical users also, as we can use it to write programs in an easy way.

It helped to find the missing tags<>, closed tags, un closed tags, or any other error in the tags. Notepad++ has made its position on almost top of all the application for developing or programming because of the features provided by this software.

What do you dislike?

Till now, it is very good application for me from the software that I have used. I just want that it may contain some tables type structure also so that if a non-tech person wants to work then he may do that in an easy way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nothing to be recommended now. If anything is needed then , we will surely recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest business problem we have overcome after using this is that our developers can easily find the bugs while coding or after coding, which saves their lots of time which they can utilize in their any other work. Notepad++ helps to code simultaneously in different pages of a website or an app in different sections at the same time.

"Sam's review of Notepad++"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this software is its multi-purpose ness. It can be literally useful in any technology domain you can name. Even somebody who is not into technology might use it to edit a text file or make a note to himself. It is actually that trivial and yet so powerful. The software encompasses every imaginable feature that you look for in a text file editor. The presence of plugins becomes a boon once you get to an advanced level of usage. You can switch-in and pull-out complex feature sets in the blink of an eye, just like that! It is that easy and it is that well designed.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about this software is the quality of visual themes that are bundled with it. Developers need to put in some work on coming up with darker themes that are much more polished aesthetically.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I develop software code in multiple programming languages using Notepad++. Depending on my need, I add and remove plug-ins to suit my developmental needs. This results in increased productivity without having to deal with the hassle of switching in and out of different development environments and in trying to remember different keyboard shortcuts.

"Notepad++ | Fav Editor"

What do you like best?

It has a very simple and easy to use GUI such that anyone can use it intuitively. The IDE is damn lightweight and does not have effect on the computer's performance. We can even open any kind of files randomly on this as it does not allocate full RAM for the file, and it allocates as and when necessary, so good memory management

What do you dislike?

It lacks in autocomplete features. If it had a bit more autocomplete features, I would be able to use it in coding too in everyday life.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will recommend this product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for any text editing purposes. It even remembers all open files and also if any text we forgot to save it remembers and shows the next time we open it. So we don't even have to bother to save it. It has Administrator mode that we can use to open system protected files and edit them too! That's a feature that was missing in many of the text editors in the market

"Being able to zoom in and out of text helps relax my eyes when working with Notepad++"

What do you like best?

I like that with Notepad++ I am able to zoom in and out (Ctrl + Mouse Wheel) so I can read code without hurting my eyes. Other text editors don't appear to have this feature.

What do you dislike?

The default font isn't the best font, but it is easy to change the font to something that is easier on the eyes, using ClearType or TrueType.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Notepad++ as my main text editor to edit files with the TXT extension. It also works on XML files. These files are usually configuration files for applications, and being able to edit them unlocks features, or helps me with data imports. For example, if I have data exported from a spreadsheet as a XML file, I am able to read the source, which ultimately makes my visual presentations better.

"Notepad++ Nice application for developers"

What do you like best?

This application is light weight and easy to use as well as pretty easy to customize. Its autocompletion feature is amazing. It keeps the history of recently viewed file so i can easily reopen the recently closed script(s). It supports multiple encoding formats and same i can change as per the need. Notepad++ automatically alerts me when any of my team member updated the shared file and same file is opened on my machine.This application has several inbuile features. When there is incorrect spelling then string highlighted with red under line. Just by Ctrl+D key combination it automatically pastes current line content in next line. No worry about data loss - this code editor does not loss the data even i did not save the recently change and mistakenly closed the application.

What do you dislike?

In case of large file size some time it takes a bit more time during the loading.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fantastic tool and its a must application for the developers. If you want a source code editor with multi language supports then its a great choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great application and supports numerous extensions files. Pretty much helpful to correct the encoding format issue. It also has tab feature so we properly keep indented the code during development. Saves a lot of time to fix the indentation in a code file.

"Best Software for quick edits"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this code editor is that you can edit any type of language, despite having assistance when programming to have a perfect code. Another big advantage is that it is free software which make it better over other paid publishers, which offer the same or even worse features. Even by adding certain libraries you can compile code in the same editor to check that the code works fine

What do you dislike?

It is a must have apart from other editors and IDEs as it opens very quickly and has decent code highlighting and code completion. So, if you need to view your files quickly and don't want to wait for a heavy IDE to load, it's really amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a powerful text tool, get Notepadd++ because between it's free and it's going to satisfy all your needs as an editor, you won't need any other tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us with small editions, as well as with languages for which we do not have our own development tool.

"Best Text Editor"

What do you like best?

I use Notepad++ as a quick and easy code editor, I don't need the bells and whistles of a full IDE, just something to quickly edit or view HTML, Javascript or PHP.

It's quick to load and colour codes code and syntax high lighting

What do you dislike?

It opens up the files that you were previously looking at by default. That can get a little messy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When editing code, ensure that you set the language that you are editing to benefit from colour coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to save notes of many projects details, and also meetings with customers. In addition, when I need to analyse some SQL code of any other code, like XML, for example, I just paste it to Notepad++ and change the language to SQL or XML and it auto identifies and highlights the key words of each language. This way is easier for me to find issues in SQL codes, for example.

Me encanta lo versátil que es aunque es una aplicación bastante simple, a menudo puedo hacer cosas convenientes como retraer secciones de código para no tener tan ocupada el area de trabajo, para mi cuando les doy clases a mis alumnos me viene genial.

What do you dislike?

Nada en realidad, cuando necesito una mejor funcionalidad para un idioma específico, solo uso mi IDE de elección, etc. Es genial para lo que uso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo para cualquier actividad donde necesites escribir codigo, pues es donde mejor se desempeña ya que reconoce amplia gama de lenguajes y te ayuda mucho visualmente.

"A simple but powerful text editor"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Notepad++ is its simplicity. It may appear as a simple text editor but it packs a lot of power.

What do you dislike?

With so much features, many people don't even use it to its full potential. At first install it should have a wizard which gives new users a quick walk-through.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this, I have been using it for a while now and it has been one of few software that I use daily.

I have found it highly resourceful for quick touch-ups in code. Also its support for a wide variety of languages really makes it an everyday use tool.

"Un editor de texto simple y rapido"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ siempre se ha sentido "bien". Me encanta la amplia gama de extensiones disponibles que me permiten personalizar mi experiencia como mejor me parezca. Lo que más me gusta de notepad++ es que se mantiene fuera de mi camino. No trata de hacer demasiado, sino más bien notepad++ se contenta con proporcionar una gran experiencia de edición de texto con tiempos de carga rápidos y un entorno que es muy cómodo. He editado scripts increíblemente largos usando notepad++ y de alguna manera lo prefiero a Visual Studio cuando realizo trabajos similares. La funcionalidad de buscar y reemplazar en notepad++ es absolutamente excelente y fácil de usar. Es increíble para mí que el software libre esté tan bien pulido.

What do you dislike?

No hay mucho que no me guste. Hace lo que se propone y lo hace bien. Puede ser difícil encontrar el plugin que necesita porque hay muchos que ofrecen una funcionalidad similar. Si hubiera un poco más de comunidad se sabria qué plugins de los que están disponibles pueden ser más útiles.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ es una buena herramienta para manejar texto, transformarlo y editarlo rápidamente.

Si buscas una herramienta sencilla pero útil, Notepad++ es bueno para ti.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Muchas veces necesito codificar programas cortos rápidos (java, php, c, scripts) y Notepad++ para hacerlo fácil y rápido. Las capacidades para editar, validar y ejecutar código son completas. Algunos plugins (como json analizer) son impresionantes.

A veces necesito hacer una presentación, y la función de modo zoom simple es muy útil y me salva el día.

"Para editar texto"

What do you like best?

Es software Notepad++ es un software gratuito, parecido al bloq de notas que incluyen los sistemas operativo Windows, pero mejorado y con más opciones. Permite editar y crear texto y editar código. Permite numerar las líneas, así será más rápido encontrar el error o lo que desea cambiar más adelante. Se puede modificar el código de colores para hacerlo más legible. También guarda el texto automáticamente sin tener que dar expresamente al botón de guardar como, una gran ayuda sobre todo si te quedas sin batería en el portátil. El software ocupa muy poco espacio y es muy sencillo de instalar en cualquier equipo.

What do you dislike?

Quizás le falte la opción de depurar el código, atajos de teclado y otras herramientas que si encuentras en otros softwares, pero este es muy básico e intuitivo simplemente para escribir.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si desea crear notas de código de una forma rápida y con auto-guardado, sin duda pruebe Notepad++, es gratuito y nuestro favorito.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Permite abrir varias notas a la vez desde el mismo programa, cosa que en Bloq de Notas se abría el programa con cada nota. Las múltiples opciones de códigos de colores nos hacen más sencillo trabajar y leer el código.

"Util para ediciones rapidas de documentos"

What do you like best?

Notepad++ es un programa increíble gratuito y es una herramienta muy útil para editores web y escritores de código. Una de las principales ventajas de Notepad++ es su capacidad para abrir y guardar en una gran variedad de formatos de archivo. Esto lo hace genial no sólo como un editor de texto versátil, sino también como una herramienta para abrir y explorar el contenido de un archivo que de otra manera no podría ser abierto por otro software. Notepad++ .También tiene muchas funciones de auto-completar útiles para los formatos de edición más comunes. Esto es muy útil para acelerar la escritura de código.

What do you dislike?

Sin framework ni soporte de biblioteca. No hay ninguna función de prueba/depuración o vista previa in-app para ejecutar el código. Sin embargo, todo esto es intencional, ya que noté el diseño minimalista de Notepad++. Estas características lo desmerecerían.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Intenta usarlo y dejarás todas las otras herramientas para esta ligera y fácil herramienta.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dondequiera que usáramos el Bloc de notas normal, ahora es reemplazado por Bloc de notas++. Para tomar notas en cualquier reunión o para anotar cualquier otra información pequeña, usamos Notepad++. Como es ligero, podemos abrir múltiples pestañas dentro de él y también múltiples instancias para facilitar su uso. Incluso recuerda los últimos datos que introdujimos incluso si cerramos la aplicación o el PC se apaga por alguna razón desconocida.

"El mejor editor de texto"

What do you like best?

Es sin duda el mejor y más liviano editor de texto con el que he trabajado nunca. Puedes tener montones de pestañas con documentos kilométricos abiertos y no se ralentiza ni lo más mínimo. Además, su caché te permite abrir y cerrar la aplicación sin necesidad de estar guardando uno por uno los documentos, te los mantiene en memoria. Incluso si apagas el pc, te los almacena de forma temporal.

What do you dislike?

No hay nada que no me haya gustado de este editor. Su simplicidad, claridad y facilidad de uso hacen de Notepad++ el mejor editor gratuito del mercado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si buscas una herramienta de texto potente, hazte con Notepadd++ porque entre que es gratis y que va a satisfacer todas tus necesidades como editor, no te va a hacer falta ninguna otra herramienta secundaria.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sobre todo lo he utilizado para la construcción de expresiones regulares, es una herramienta muy potente para tratar grandes ficheros de texto plano ya sean html, xml, json... da igual, puede con cualquier cosa.

"A simple tool with unlimited possibilities"

What do you like best?

I like the option language where anyone can choose multiple programming languages.

What do you dislike?

We do not know how long a line is running, need to go to the end of each sentence to figure out. There is no horizontal scrolling.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Amazing product. A must use to make life simple. Have multiple utilities without any fuzz or software hanging in between.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used it for Java programming, SQL, Python, XML, HTML, and general notes. I like the way it transforms every language, it shows that syntax and is color code with that specific programming language. That provides us the similarity of the tools and make the coding easier. In HTML I liked the enclosing and opening i.e. the "+" symbol, it made me realize what is ending where.

"Un editor rápido, completo y gratuito"

What do you like best?

- Tiene la ventaja de ser tan simple como quisieras o tan complejo como desees configurarlo a través de configuraciones avanzadas.

- Abre archivos grandes rápidamente sin esperas.

- Recuerda ediciones anteriores no guardadas, formateo personalizado para tipo de fuente y conjunto de caracteres, haciendo doble clic en una palabra resalta todas las coincidencias y se integra con el Explorer.

- La GUI se puede personalizar para que te sientas más cómodo.

- Actualizaciones constantes mejorando el programa a menudo.

- Es gratuito!

What do you dislike?

- Puede ser un poco difícil de configurar inicialmente. Sin embargo, no hay mucho que me disguste...Es un excelente programa. Lo único que puedo mencionar es que el corrector ortográfico no es bueno, al menos en español.

- Otra desventaje es que esta herramienta no está disponible en mac. Hoy en día, con más usuarios de Mac, especialmente para el desarrollo web, deseo que Notepad ++ se puedan crear para mac.

- El soporte para imágenes sería realmente interesante y que soporte más lenguajes de programación.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Notepad++ es gratuito, completo y rápido. Dale una oportunidad!

Notepad++ es mi editor de texto principal. Lo uso para todo, desde revisar Perl, .ASP, XML, HTML, archivos de registro y hasta para tomar notas.

También tiene un montón de complementos que puedes descargar para hacerlo aún más completo y mejor!

Personalmente utilizo el complemento de autoguardado, porque como todos los demás me olvidé de guardar en algún momento y el plugin Compare, así que cuando estoy haciendo un trabajo colaborativo y alguien me da algo, puedo saber qué información ya tenemos y qué información necesitamos juntar.
