Would love to abandon Dreamweaver, but...



  • There are only TWO reasons why I don’t completely abandon Dreamweaver…

    1. I love the “synchronize” local and remote files (essentially, a file comparison) which allows you to compare the differences in files before putting or getting files.

    2. I love the search & replace functions, that allow you to search open, current, or selected files

    Is it possible to do these functions in Notepad++? If so, I have not found a way.



  • Regarding 1:
    Maybe this N++ https://github.com/pnedev/compare-plugin could do the job your looking for. What are remote files in your special case? FTP, some network drive, etc?

    open: yes in N++
    current: yes in N++
    selected: sort of in N++…you can specify a folder and wildcard-based filespecs to filter on…and if you want subfolders searched(/replaced) or not…but you can’t pick and choose individual files by some sort of checkbox highlighting if that’s what you’re after
