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!!

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.*

This text editor could be the best if not one stupid, dumb, ridiculous and very annoying bug: option "Remember last used directory" doesn't work at all for a very long time, actually I noticed this problem many years ago and it's still here. I have no words to describe what I think about this bug... The worst thing that people so many times talked about it to the developers, but they don't care! This is something amazing, if you ask me... Looks like they simply trolling us by keeping this bug unfixed, I don't see other explanation.

Отличный редактор кода. Забыл когда начал им пользоваться.
