This program is very good but it can't handle extremely large files.

Gave it it a 5 stars rating just because of the version number and the date it's out as in Friday the 13th. :-P Also did a screen capture!

2 stars less for not fixing "stylerTheme" path in "config" file to be portable even though I told the author about it ages ago.

Still pretty much my favourite full-featured text editor, although I tend to agree with the previous reviewer that Notepad2 (I prefer xhmikosr's version though - code folding etc - http://xhmikosr.github.io/notepad2-mod/) is a more lightweight and efficient choice for editing things like ini and small txt files.

Notepad++ v6.4.3 new features and bug fixes:

1. Fix a crash issue while using Function list.
2. Enhance delimiter selection (Ctrl + Mouse Double Click) - add GUI settings in Preferences dialog.
3. Add open session in the new instance capacity.
4. Add new command line argument "-openSession" for opening a session file.
5. Add multi-instance option.
6. Fix regression -systemtray command line option not working properly.
7. Fix begin/end selection bug after the text modification between the begin and end position.
8. Add localization command line option -LlangCode where langCode is browser language code.

Notepad++ does more than I need, so I actually prefer the simpler Notepad2 as a Notepad replacement, you can check it out here:

The fact that I keep coming back to it says it all really ... While it is not as powerful as, say Visual Studio, or even UltraEdit, it is light weight yet powerful ENOUGH. It is based on a text editor component for the language it is written in, so is akin to one of those browsers that uses an embedded IE control (in a way). However, as you can see, they've done a great job of implementing the control and making appropriate additions to it.
5 stars when its installer auto-terminates any running instance and a few other small annoyances are fixed, such as a lack of digital signature.

Life without notepad++ would not be worth living.... Okay, more seriously, I've been using text editors now for 30 years. Notepad++ is the best one for my job as a programmer I've ever used. The only thing I would add would be a LISPy macro engine like EMACs has - it may exist as an extension - there are around a hundred.
