Is there any way to open a 258Mg text file? Notepad is able to open it, but I'd prefer to use Notepad++. Thanks
Isn't it possible to just right click the file and select Edit with Notepad++?
I don't believe there is a file size limitation with Notepad++, but if there is, Wordpad is faster at opening large files compared to Notepad...
When I try to open the file (using right mouse or open), it sits there for a moment, then pops up a dialog with "File is too big to be opened by Notepad++". Clicking ok displays another dialog "ERR: Can not open file "xyz", where xyz is the file path. Notepad opens it ok though. I know that I can use Notepad/Wordpad, but I want the Notepad++ features, even with large files. I'm at version 5.1.3. Thanks.
Notepad++ (or rather, the Scintilla edit control which NP++ uses) isn't really made for huge files - this is a topic that has been brought up numerous times. Even when dealing with relatively small files in the multi-megabyte range, editing becomes so slow it's more or less unusable.
