Notepad2 3.0.20

Posted on Monday, November 03 2008 @ 21:53 CET by

When I was looking around for text editors with syntax highlighting, I have come across the Scintilla source code editing component. I was very much impressed by this project, so I decided to create my own Scintilla-based text editor. The result is Notepad2, a fast and light-weight Notepad-like text editor with syntax highlighting. This program can be run out of the box without installation, and does not touch your system's registry.


 - Notepad2 converted to a native Win32 Unicode application
- "Copy Add" (Ctrl+E) to append selected text to clipboard
- "Unwrap Paragraphs" (Ctrl+Shift+J)
- "Strip Last Character" (Alt+U)
- "Select Line", can be used repeatedly (Ctrl+Shift+Space)
- Remapped "Delete Line" hotkey to Ctrl+Shift+D
- Remapped "Transparent Mode" hotkey to Alt+O
- Allow easy toggling of find and replace dialogs (Ctrl+F, Ctrl+H)
- Save and restore find and replace dialog positions (Ctrl+O, Ctrl+P)
- Files with UTF-8 Signature always loaded in UTF-8 mode
- Simple HTML detection for files without extensions
- Support basic Emacs file variables (see FAQ on my website)
- Update timestamps (Shift+F5) (see FAQ on my website)
- %APPDATA% searched for existing ini-file
- Modest enhancements to scheme customization dialog
- Improved performance for saving settings to ini-file
- Less restrictive handling of quoted filenames on command line
- Keep scrolling positions when reloading changed files
- Modified /s command line switch to work with extensions, not ids
- /m command line switch to match specified text
- /q command line switch to force creation of new files
- Pass command line switches to existing windows: /s /t /h /x /g /q
- Proceed to next match after choosing "replace" in replace dialog
- Fixed some more find and replace problems
- Improved visual appearance on Windows Vista
- Updated Scintilla library to 1.77
