Quick tip: notepad++

I’ve been using this program for years… I’m sure to most here, it’s old news, but I’m sure some may have never heard of it.

If you haven’t , get Notepad++. It’s a great text editor and it supports many different coding languages.

you can download and import the gcode syntax also.

One thing I like about it, is I can do some quick notes on a tab and close the program without saving. When I open it back up, the notes are still there.

If you want street cred, and like to learn arcane key bindings, you should use (g)VI(m). I’ve been using it for decades!

More often than not I use the VisVim module so I can have my vi keybindings in Visual Studio (primarily targeting Android drivers, no less!). In which case, I think my street cred just evaporated.
