- Upvoted a comment on Programmer's NotepadA solid choice for a simple yet powerful programmer's editor. Compare's well to the best. I like the fact that the interface is clean enough to serve as a notepad replacement for the average user, which is the primary reason I went looking again for an editor after being a longtime Notepad++ fan. However, under the hood is a polished feature set focused on the coder, with almost everything you'd expect and no fluff. Bonus points for a logically organized toolbars, options dialog and sensible defaults. Compares well with Notepad++ and PSPad, my other two favorites, but feels more lightweight while still carrying the necessary features. Has all of the basics you would expect such as syntax-highlighting, find-in-files, show whitespace, macros, notepad-replacement (through registry image file execution), external tools, etc. It also has the somewhat rare combination of advanced features that I happen to care about: * Regex search and replace (perl syntax) * Column-mode selection (from scintilla component) * Code-folding * Python-scriptable I only am left wanting for a couple features I miss from Notepad++, namely: * Obsidian color scheme * Ctrl-Shift-arrow to move lines up and down * Markdown syntax highlighting Also works with Zen coding. Very good stuff. I'm starting to prefer it over Notepad++ and PSPad. Worth a look for any programmer, or regular user. Don't be fooled by the UI into thinking it's not a powerful editor.
- Upvoted a comment on Programmer's NotepadVery good programming editor, use it daily for all my coding. Regular updates. Very configurable, great regex/search & replace support. Not an IDE, just an editor. Used to use (and paid for) Textpad, but that grew stale after no updates. Tried notepad++, but this was a lot less messy. Highly recommended for a simple & fast but very powerful text editor.
- reviewed Programmer's NotepadI'm happy to find a tabbed Free OpenSource alternative to Notepad ++. It has the highlighting.. One thing I like better about Notepad ++ is that I can rename a file while I'm in it. I also miss the blank line removal that Notepad++ has. I'm switching over to PsPad as another secondary because it has the blank line removal, tabbed interface, and highlighting like Notepad++.
