Notepads - A modern, lightweight text editor with a minimalist design. - Fluent design with built-in Tab system. - Blazingly fast and lightweight. - Launch from command line or powershell by typing: "notepads" - Multi-line handwriting support. - Built-in Markdown file preview viewer. - Built-in diff viewer (Preview your changes). - Session snapshot and multi-instances. What is Notepads and why do I care? I have been waiting long enough for a modern Windows 10 notepad app to come before I decided to create one myself. Don’t get me wrong, Notepad++, VS Code, and Sublime are great text editors. I have used them all and I will continue to use them in the future. However, they are either too heavy or looks less appealing. There are times that I just wanted to use Windows notepad for things like writing notes or editing config files. So I decided to create a win32 notepad replacement here and try to give it a modern look and feel. Most importantly, it has to be blazingly fast and appeal to everyone. Notepads is still under active development. Please checkout latest info here: http://www.NotepadsApp.com
