Anyone here use Notepad++?

I like to use Notepad++ when I go for some fast and easy coding at home, it's quick and clean. At work I always had to use Eclipse, or Eclipse Studio, and I never really got used to it. It felt pretty clunky and slow in comparison to Notepad++. I also used Borland, Visual Studio and Webstorm (I think that's how it was called) for a while before I discovered Notepad++.

I used to use Notepad++. I think it's an amazing text editor and also value the fact that it's open source but I'm not an active user any more. The reason was that I knew of Sublime Text 2. It's not open source but it's (pretty much) free to use and I can't think of something that Notepad++ or any other editor has that ST2 hasn't and I just like it better than any other.

I have used Notepad++ before, and it seems to be an easy to use, simple kind of program. I agree with your complaint about the auto-editing, because sometimes that does more harm than good.

 

I think Notepad++ thought they were falling behind so in their latest version they included a bunch of new auto correct functionality. I honestly didn't like that and turned most of it off. The reason I liked them is because of the simply, fast, and solid feeling I get when I use it.

 

I'd like to donate a little to the developers. Might do that today.

When it comes to web design Notepad++ is the best code editor out there in my opinion. The formatting, auto-correct, etc. are great. Some editors overdo the auto-formatting and try to predict your every move which can be quite annoying. Notepad++ is perfect though.

Indeed, me too I'm using Notepad++ for Android ROM customization. I liked the feature of auto correct and I've modified easier than other text editor or code editor out there. I edited build.prop many times using this software. I hope I can try sublime text and PHPstorm too.

I use Notepad++ for editing my XML files. It  is the best editor available. Shows you the line numbers too and very easy to notice and locate in errors in XML files. It is the default editor in my PC. 

I actually redownloaded it just now, it's been a while since I used it. Hehe.

It's a free source editor, so why the heck not. Gonna remember the good old days.

I was using the regular Notepad, until I've discovered that Notepad++ exists. Obviously it's a much stronger tool, but strangely I find myself using the regular one for basic tasks, because it's a habit already. I feel more comfortable using it.

I can actually understand you, regular Notepad has a nostalgic feeling to it. :)

It's not just that, my friend. Nostalgic feeling is great and all, but using the old Notepad just feels overall more comfortable.

I use the Notepad++ (which is great too btw) to perform harder and more difficult tasks.

I have not used it before but now since you mention, I will start using it.
