Welcome to Notepad++ Community!

  • Congratulations! I’m happy to see the new Notepad++ community. I like the new fresh design and the stable accessibility. It was a good decision to move away from SourceForge. I moved with my NPP plugins to GitHub too now.

  • Thanks don and milipili for the work to get this up and running. It certainly is a beautiful and easy to use forum!!

  • Thanks for fixing this quickly :) UI is pretty slick as well :)

  • Thanks for all the effort you must have put into setting this up at short notice!

    I HATE downloading software only to discover that I have also installed some total garbage on to my PC - so I totally endorse your decision to leave SourceForge because of what they are now doing.

  • This is great! Never seen NodeBB before, it’s neat. :)

  • G’day Folks,

    I have only had the opportunity to use Notepad++ 16 or more times as I was / am, used to the standard “Notepad” and the use of a very old “Registry Crawler”, the later allowed me to scan the registry for anything I needed to find in the registry (faster than the Find in the standard Regedit) and edit and or delete all entries pertaining to the search.

    This was a very handy tool when an “uninstall” failed to correctly do so subsequently not being able to re-install or install a newer version of the same program because of the remnants left behind by the failed uninstall. I would then use the “Registry Crawler” to find all remaining traces, showing all of them at once, i.e. displaying all traces, then delete them, re-boot and the then re-install or install of the newer version which then would succeed.

    The original Author of this program has disappeared of the www and having tried to find him over the years (since 2005) has come up empty.

    I still have the original installation files and a Key Gen for the “Registry Crawler” program, since once upon a time a had close dealing with the Author, so I feel that there is nothing illegal about what I have received from the original Author.

    Others have attempted to do something similar however have not succeeded in coming close to the functionality of the original Registry Crawler.

    Registry Crawler works fine up to Win 7 and then after that in Win 8 / 8.1 we need to install and run it in Win 7 compatible mode and it works fine except some editing is not active. This however could be fixed, I feel, by someone that can work with the RC codes.

    If this functionality of the “Registry Crawler” could be built;t int the Notepad++, I think we would end up with a very enhance Notepad++(+)

    Don.H. if you are interested in looking into this, I am only to happy to provide you with the download links for RC and it’s KG and instruction notes that I have developed myself as to how to install the RC and how to configure it to obtain the best results from it.

    Sorry Folk, I will only provide the download links to Don.H. !!!

  • Wow, NodeBB looks so refreshing. Thanks for this change. An awesome looking community center for an awesome editor.

  • Hello World, NotePad++ deserves to have its own site :) I love it.

  • It’s great to see that you have a new home. Keep up the good work. I’ve gotten a lot of my clients to change to using NotePad++ over the years.


  • Thank you for all the hard work and dedication. Notepad++ has always stood pretty much alone. Excelsior!

  • Joined, and this forum software is looking amazing XD

  • It is an improvement if only from a clean organizational approach. I hope the document sharing will work out similarly. These long distance relationships are challenging enough w/o tools to help facilitate cohesive organization. I don’t see translation, a wip I assume.

    Good move.

  • Looks great. Great move by shifting from Sourceforge. Also just discovered NodeBB. Looks really nice.

  • @Roger-Hass
    Hi Rogger! I would be warmly interested in the RC. Would it be possible to provide the links also to me? Thanks :)

  • Hello Don,

    Thank you so much for this new great forum.
    I’ve disabled clear type and font smoothing on my machine (Win 7), and this is how I see the fonts here.

    Would you consider using a different font? - I’d appreciate it.
    It can be done via the custom CSS panel.

    Best regards.

  • Hey Don
    Thanks… a lot… for a lot!
    I love n++ and use it all day every day - its indispensable!
    And this new home happens to be nice! ☺

  • Hi Don Thanks so much for NP++ I am happy to see a community for users to share their thoughts and to contribute. Notepad ++ is I think the most used piece of software when I am on Windows®. I particularly love the search in all open documents function! That is such a time saver for an absent minded forgetful person like me and helps me to get more work done much faster.
    I have used it since 2005 and it is the Best out there. I miss it when I am on Linux .
    It does run on wine on Linux because I have tried it on a few computers.
    I use Windows® often solely to be able to use NP ++! That’s the truth.
    Also, with all the plugins available NP++ is a veritable “Swiss Army Knife” piece of software.
    I look forward to reading posts on here and hopefully learning more.

  • Yeah, this was a really good idea, to move forward. The SF forum engine was really oudated. Thanks a lot!

  • Okay so I’m here. I’ve been using N++ for several years, barely scratching it’s capabilities. I just bought a REXX programming manual because that’s the scripting language of my telnet client, and I need to learn it. And N++ will be there to witness all my ‘**programmer error’**s. Keep up the great work everybody!
