I have been working for a long time with NOTEPAD++. However after updating from a 6.2.x version to 6.4.1 it was no longer possible to work with big files (> 1 MB). Every change in the file takes an awful long time until NOTEPAD++ answers. I tried the 6.3.3 version - same problem. Going back to 6.2.2 the problem is resolved. So I cannot use any version higher than 6.2.x. Would be nice to resolve this problem in higher versions!!

In my opinion Notepad++ is simply the best free editor for Windows out there. We use it on a daily basis for log file analysis, where its searching and marking features do a great job. The only drawback is its lack for 64 bit support, so that larger files cannot be opened.

A must for every developer out there! Plugin-rich and nicely integrated macros make it a step above all others in Windows.

JeSuisCharlie I must respectfully disagree with Mr. penryn. The frightening cult of a suspect religion has gone on a rampage of ruthless, brutal, behavior calling on God as it's reason. For this reason it is incumbent upon any civilized person to denounce these actions in whatever medium they have at their disposal. I also must say, "Je Suis Charlie"! As to the post of mr/ms z-not they have a point. Although the tone of the post is a little harsh I must agree that it is one of the first things that should have been addressed. Will the lack of a correction stop me from using Notepad++, definitely not. I enjoy it's other delights! Now, maybe someone will "Remember the last used directory" ?? smiling and hope good weather is with you all. fbii

It was a great editor until the dev decided he should make it type out a political message on startup. I agree with the message, but it's totally wrong to exhibit malware-like behavior just to get your political agenda across *in a professional editor.*
