    Favorite Basic Text/Data Editor??


    MS has Notepad as a nice lite text editor and word-pad.. both are nice and fit the need, and pre-installed. But what do you use as a third party tool??

    I use the following:
    • Notepad++
    • Notepad2
    • Genny
    • EditPad Pro/EditPad lite.. both are great, IMO..


    So,, what you you folks use/think??
    Jeff :)

    Notepad++


    I use Notepad++ for pretty much all of the coding I do for my Web course and the majority of text-based stuff I do for myself.

    I only use Word, when I have to create documents (e.g. reports) that have to be submitted for assessment.

    I normally use Notepad++ instead of Notepad. Now that it's on my mind I need to install it in Windows 10. I never gave it a thought to install it the last time I did a clean install.

    There's the new Visual Studio Code from Microsoft, free and based off of Atom - perfect because it's cross-platform and runs on Windows/Linux/Mac.

    I prefer Sublime Text 2/3, myself (faster UI, C++ instead of HTML/JS). And vim never dies, of course.

    I tried it out and it's ok.. I much prefer any of the ones I listed in the OP.

    Notepad2


    I used Notepad++ until I discovered Notepad2 and now I wouldn't even think of changing.
    Once customized Notepad2 works much better for me

    I go back and forth between Notepad++ and Notepad2. I use FileSearchEX to actually find the files I've been working on, then right click and them all and drag them into Notepad++. That is really why I like Notepad++ ... support for more than one file.
