Whoever decided to put a "No to all" button in Notepad++, I wish you and your family a healthy and wealthy life. I hope you will get a pay rise and be successful in your career.

    Have you tried anything else except notepad++?

    TBH, I highly respect Notepad++ as a quality crafted product and really wish it was cross platform.

    @theuser Yeah, Notepadqq under Linux isn't even nearly as good, and its performance sucks. Just like Meld is ridiculous compared to Winmerge.

    @example-user The organisations I have worked have a painful approval process for using any kind of software that does not come out of the box. Luckily, Notepad++ was allowed in all of them. So, it is commonly used for cases like editing server.xml from WinSCP, general configuration files and such.

    Maybe, I just wish people would stop using vanilla no++ it in place of and IDE.

    @SortOfTested I don't need an IDE. For really hard cases, I use GDB on CLI anyway.

    The problem is people who desperately need an IDE to support their absence of ability and assert that they do not.

    Never really got the dislike for notepad++, unobtrusive af, easy startup, and it works well under heavy loads.

    I would say that it ain't for beginners for the same reason @SortOfTested and @Fast-Nop said, it ain't an IDE, so it shouldn't be used as one.

    I am leaving my Vim+1500plugins and personalized vim files tho.

    @AleCx04 We (I) need a list of your plugins and why the hell do you need so many?

    @ThermalCube nah man its just me playing around. I do have lots of plugins inside of my Vim config. NerdTree for example, lightline, couple of plugins for different languages, stuff like that, nothing too crazy really.

    @theuser NP++ will never be cross-platform unless the French Chinese author completely changes his mind (or hands off the project to someone which is unlikely).

    @Berkmann18 Better go ahead and copy paste source code into WebAssembly and then copy paste into electron. Done.

    @theuser That would be an interestingly complex approach. Mind you that might be worth being a CS final year project.
