The icon looks better than Notepad++!
If you're going to reply to my post, consider posting an (preferably working) example - 99.7% of time time, I already know how to implement the feature theoretically! I don't learn very well from references, etc....

You forgot multiple cursors! That's one of the best features! (Unless of course you were referencing that by "rename multiple variables at the same time.")

Yes, that's what I meant.

Nope.

• Auto indenting. This is a big deal for me.
• Goto anything. In the small project i was testing it on, this isn't such a big deal, but for larger projects it's great!
• Projects. They save all the files you were working on, where you were in those files, unsaved changes, ect.
• Batch edits. This is something i wouldn't use often, but it would be very useful sometimes.
• Lots of plugins.
• F7 runs the current project in *any* way you specify.
• Snippets. Save code templates for later reuse.
• Open entire folders, instead of just files.
• Auto complete for parentheses, brackets, ect.
In my opinion, NOTEPAD + + has all of these features, except "Rename multiple variables at the same time", "Cross platform".
Plus of the "Sublime Text" for me is - "Python based plugin API (built in Python console to interactively experiment in real time)".

I think i was missing some of the features of np++ then. Auto indenting? Goto anything? Projects? Does np++ really have all those? where are they?

Most of these features are available with Np++, not natively, but using plugins.

Code: Select all

Editor::Type()
{
if(most_features != all_features && additional_plugins != native_implementation)
{
AwesomeEditor = 'Sublime';
}
else
{
}
return AwesomeEditor;
}
Console Screen says "Sublime." I trust the console screen.

### Re: What IDE are you using?

I prefer Lua

Code: Select all

editors = {Sublime, NotepadPlusPlus}
for i, v in ipairs(editors) do
print(v.name)
break
end
end
Seriously, I like NP++ and I'm too lazy to try out a new text editor, but not too lazy to keep talking about being too lazy to try out a new text editor; so I'll stick with NP++.

"Goto anything" - i don't find.
