Yet another Notepad replacement...

Published on Wednesday, March 7, 2007

I found Notepad2 quite useful. Practically as fast as Notepad, but has syntax highlighting(for most common file types - HTML, XML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript, ASP, PHP, CSS, Perl/CGI, C/C++, C#, Java, VB, Pascal, Assembler, SQL, Python, NSIS, INI, REG, INF, BAT, DIFF) and good regular expression search and replace.

Other goodies include:

  • Rectangular block selection (Alt-Mouse)
  • Automatic closing of tags (Ctrl-Shift-H)
  • Cut/copy entire lines with a keystroke (Ctrl-Shift-X/Ctrl-Shift-C)
  • Move lines up/down (Ctrl-Shift-Up/Ctrl-Shift-Down)
  • Remove blank lines (Alt-R)
