That's very interesting. Let's talk about it.
Almost without exception I prefer to have two text files open in different windows, because I am comparing the contents of two versions, or I want to copy things over between two different files. When there are two tabs in the same window I can't see both of them at the same time, and it's awkward to keep switching between them. I suppose the use case for tabs is when you use Notepad++ as a sort of IDE, for example, opening a lot of different source files. Is that your use case, thechaoscoder
? Well, I always use Visual Studio for that.
With that said, it is quite easy to make Notepad++ automatically open files in different windows. Or, you can move a tab out of the current window by simply dragging it outside the window.
So I am wondering, what are the advantages, if any, of Notepad3 versus Notepad++?
