Well suited for coding in a lightweight text editor. If you do not need advanced plugins to support customized needs and just want to code away this is a perfect choice for you.

This is an absolute must have for any IT professional to have in their toolkit, especially if there's a possibility of utilizing programming languages. If you have to create or modify scripts, or even do basic HTML editing, this software is for you. I would think that users outside of IT wouldn't have much of a need for this software, though.

Pros

EditPlus

  • Decent overall text editor for any programming language you want to use.
  • Can customize your layout/color scheme to fit your needs.

Notepad++

  • Text Manipulation - You can easily edit and reorganize large sets of text. It's an amazing text editor.
  • Plug in Support - There are so many plugins. My favorite is the difftool. Takes two files and shows you were the differences are in each one.
  • Multiple Language Support - Supports the syntax for many languages, some that don't have IDE support like Visual Studio. Helps with writing code.

Cons

EditPlus

  • Not well supported by community
  • Lacks plugins/extension other well known editors have.

Notepad++

  • It is only available for Windows (sorry, Linux and Mac users!).
  • It lacks some of the features of higher-order integrated development environments or code editors like Visual Studio Code, such as integration with Git or other versioning tools.
  • It works best for small text files and lighter tasks such as indenting text blocks you copy and paste from elsewhere. You could use this for all your programming needs, but there are better options out there for a primary tool for that purpose.

Since Notepad++ is a free, open-source product, there is no help-desk or customer service support, per se. This is a tradeoff you make when using a free service. However, the available forums and FAQ on Notepad++ have been extremely helpful in providing answers for questions or concerns that I have had, whether on the Plugins or base product

Not well supported, lacks functionality other editors have.

I have evaluated UltraEdit. At $99 for an individual license, UltraEdit is quite expensive. Notepad++ is FREEAdditionally, UltraEdit has a much larger footprint and is therefore relatively slow to load. For these reasons, I choose to use Notepad++ as my primary editor

Return on Investment

  • There is a cost too for the editor, and even though it is not really that pricey we ended moving away to another option.

  • This software has mainly a positive impact in the time it saves. This increase productivity certainly promotes a higher ROI.
  • Notepad++ helps in noticing small bugs in code and picking pieces up to read in blocks. This leads to less CRs down the road.
  • I do not see any negative ROI from this product.
