Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

Notepad++ is being used by almost everyone in the organization as it is the best tool to keep our data for a quick reference. One can use it as an IDE tool for almost 60 languages and scripts which makes it a one-stop application to use any language. The autosave option is also one of the best reasons.
  • Free and takes less amount of storage in order to install it.
  • Code auto-complete and syntax highlight works for almost all the languages that it supports.
  • Copying or cutting the data based on the number of characters in a row is also great.
  • Lots of plugins available.
  • Only text data can be saved unlike Microsoft One Note where we can paste the screenshots or any other format files along with the source links.
  • It hangs while dealing with a large amount of data.
  • The user interface is not so appealing. It would be great if Dark mode also available.
  • Since the application is faster, the return of Investment is high as it saves time.
  • The application is completely a freeware with unlimited usage which takes no allocation of budget.
Notepad++ has many advanced plugins whereas the other applications do not have as many as this. It supports many programming languages and takes low storage and gives faster outputs. Syntax auto complete and syntax highlight is also a plus when compared to that of other applications. And. if you search for a word, it highlights all the positions of the word and also gives the number of occurrences of the word.
Initial versions of Notepad++ were very slow and there were many bugs but they keep updating and fixing bugs with new features. Though they provide many features and language support, they make sure that the size and installation are easy.
