Notepad++ Text Editor


I’m sure most computer programmers use more than one text editor. I have Notepad++, Sublime Text, Atom and Visual Studio Code installed on my computer. I don’t even really have a favourite. It depends what I am doing. Here’s an example.

I needed to document a SQL Server project I was working on and I wanted to have my T-SQL code properly syntax highlighted in m a Word file. After Googling that I found that Notepad++ can do the job.

  1. Paste your code in the window;
  2. Select the programming language from the language menu;
  3. Select the text to copy;
  4. Right click and select Plugin commands -> Copy Text with Syntax Highlighting;
  5. Paste it into MS Word and you are good to go!
