Notepad++

Notepad++ is a great lightweight text editor and is an immediate install to replace the default Windows Notepad for me. It is suitable for quickly opening and editing single text files and for jotting down quick notes that may be temporary.It is great for quick edits on copy & pasting pages of text. I would use it to update paths using vertical selection or through regex search & replace.It is not a full IDE for any kind of code editing but it is very fast to open single code files, xml or json and is my preferred way to look at contents in these files rather than opening in a code editor.

WordPerfect provides thousands of templates, fonts, and clipart. You can purchase the Oxford Dictionary for a low price as an Add-On. Interact with Quattro Pro and Presentations.

Pros

Notepad++

  • Robust and full of features such as programming language specific settings
  • Like being able to create new tabs, so I can easily go back to a prior project
  • For a computer savvy person, its simple to use...simple menus, robust search features
  • The ability to build and test macros, is more of a universal programming environment than a text editor

  • WordPerfect Office makes merging documents very simple and I can do more elaborate merges easily.
  • WordPerfect Office's reveal codes is a major plus! I have used it so many times to find extra coding in a document that is creating problems.

Cons

Notepad++

  • Stability - It can be buggy and when it crashes it can often be only remedied by reinstalling it. I've had to do that a number of times.
  • Add-In Quality - It appears that some add-ins aren't up to snuff as the other add-ins are. They too can cause Notepad++ to crash.
  • Appearance - It just appears outdated, not really a big deal.

WordPerfect Office

  • Sometimes converting for MS Word corrupts the formatting and cannot be used.
  • On the newest version, if you open a document from the computer explorer, it opens a whole new program, instead of just opening a new document as in previous versions, so it makes toggling more difficult.
  • There is still a WYSIWYG glitch where sometimes a line does not appear on the screen, but it is definitely there.

I would rather use Microsoft Word but since the conversion isn't flawless we are stuck using WordPerfect.

I haven't needed to utilize any support related to Notepad++. I guess this is a good thing because I found it to be quite intuitive. There are almost infinite features you can tweak and plugins you can download but I haven't had to do that because Notepad++ is really good right out of the box.

Corel still offers support. Microsoft doesn't unless you have a paid contract. LibreOffice is all web-based. If you need support, Corel WordPerfect Office is the best option.

Alternatives Considered

Notepad++

You can't compete with free software, especially when that free software doesn't come with unnecessary bloatware and is packed with powerful tools. The closest software that I have used that comes close to Notepad++ has a simple SQL code editing tool built into it, but the software is expensive and only really works for SQL. I'm surprised that they haven't started charging for Notepad++ yet.

WordPerfect Office

I have used Microsoft Office extensively as well as Google's suite of office products. I think that Microsoft is more versatile overall; from Powerpoint to Excel to Word, as well as Outlook, it has the whole office pretty much covered. WordPerfect is a very strong word processor and great for everyday use, but I don't think it could replace Excel, despite its useful tables function. I don't know if WordPerfect has an email application, so I can't compare that to Word, but we use WordPerfect side by side with the rest of the Microsoft Office suite.

Return on Investment

Notepad++

  • Notepad++ has saved me time for quick coding jobs where I don't need to fire up a full-featured code editor.
  • It saves me a lot of hassle by automating the formatting and sorting of text in a variety of use cases, especially for creating or editing mock data for projects.
  • It is a free product (although you can donate to support its development) and has been a great tool for me to rely on over the years.

  • Dealing with outside clients that may not have WordPerfect.
  • Interfacing with Microsoft products.
  • Some of the software needs to be updated..
