I only want the ones that I can use text manipulation, so I will download the minimal install and add the extensions. Can I use this syntax highlighting on text? The last time that I used Notepad++ I couldn't do that. What other plug-ins might I use only for text manipulation?
I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. Downloading the zip package of Notepad++ v6.6.8 comes with:
You do not need any plugins to do syntax highlighting, Notepad++ does that by default. There are a variety of plugins available through the PluginManager. It can also easily uninstall any unwanted plugins.
Thank you. Where can I read what these and available plugins do?
Currently the best descriptions are from the PluginManager. Most of them have a brief description and/or website. There use to be a very nice page with several plugins and descriptions on the Noteapad++ Wiki but that is temporarily unavailable
