Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

Notepad++ is used by our engineering team who does a lot of formatting for files/docs. I learned how to do the basic coding formatting in college and am able to suggest edits based on how I want the files to look. This is very important because understanding the program between users helps create efficient solutions.
  • Same format as many coding programs.
  • Easy to use
  • Clear text for less confusion between 0 and O - that is an actual issue with some programs.
  • Help support was great to work with!
  • Feels dated, keeps it relevant but the text is very 1980s.
  • A quick list for copying to a clipboard would be helpful if you are using multiple commands which happens often.
  • Need to add auto save, when making changes this would be better like other programs who use it. Just create a quick toggle to use or not use.
  • Easy to teach, we need non engineering people to understand the abilities and quickness that the program offers.
  • Updated learning guides created by the company for reference.
  • Synchronize worksheets has been a good tool to merge multiple people's work all at once. Love this function!
  • Program slowness with updates, that seems to be common in Windows 10.
  • Incompatible plug ins makes it hard to use with some programs, we would like to use it more but get limited.
  • Auto-updates. We found out that you can uninstall an older version and get a newer one which fixed a lot of issues. If you can update like you do your phone, that would make more sense.
I have used Java the most at other companies, I think we had a design deal with them. Notepad++ was more affordable with my current company.

Do you think Notepad++ delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Notepad++'s feature set?


Did Notepad++ live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Notepad++ go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Notepad++ again?


When using Notepad++ you can create the coding in a universal standard text and transfer it anywhere you need. We have a few programs built by SAP that we can use a backdoor for custom reports. These reports have little changes and glitches from updates, the coding is a workaround that about 400 people use in the company.
