When I saved, lost all data

I loved the new streamlined look, but I guess this Notepad 8 doesn't work with Windows 10 or just doesn't work because I did a good amount of work in it and saved and when I went to open the file again POOF, all the data was gone. Imagine my fury. *sigh*

Works, but limited usage

This version of notepad is definitely prettier than the default version of Notepad. My main problem with Notepad 8 however is the inability to have multiple files open at one time. It is even harder when the app itself is not in 'windows frame' form as the original making it hard to use different apps and this on one screen.

Epic Just what I wanted

I give five stars... But I would like to later see an option to change the font of the text like I could in the original notepad

Good application.. Can go more better by updates..

it lacks the recent tab (which includes the recent text files that we've opened).. Try to include more features that a real notepad include !

Version notes

This update, (long since coming) addresses many features of Notepad 8: •Improved 'Snapped' mode •Improved 'Filled' mode •The ability to change the app background from the blue it is now. (Accessible from the 'Settings' Charm) •Font and Font Colour settings (On the app bar) •Added icons to the buttons to enhance multilingual understanding •Fixed an issue with scrollbars •Fixed an issue where the text colour and background colour were potentially the same (Black text on a Black Background) •Fixed an issue where the 'Privacy Policy' element was only ever 768 pixels high.
