Where were you when Microsoft finally fixed Notepad?
>>88015232You could fit your entire document in the whitespace they wasted on the headerbar
>>88015273if you don't like the design you're racist btw
i was running wine notepad.exe
>>88015232Paste in some text broken with just \n and see if it handles it ok.Old notepad wouldn't understand unix-style line endings and mash it all into one line.
>>88015232>that retarded menu bar taking up 25% of the window>>88015235>>88015278>those retarded huge dialogs>>88015281>they even removed the fucking preview of the font list because fuck youBravo. It was hard to take something that was garbage already and make it even worse, but they did it. I'm genuinely impressed.
>gives you 12,000 font choices and no spellcheckwhy does microsoft insist on being like this
>>88015347WordPad has spell check.
>>88015235I would think it's pretty good if they just... made some of this shit (like the top menu or dialog) more compact.Also I hate that fucking weird like sky blue they use on the Save button.
>>88015368They added it in 11? Still doesn't have it in 10 last I checked. But if so, fucking based. The only thing stopping WordPad from being a suitable word processor was the baffling lack of spell check.
>lets fix it by adding rounded corners and a dark theme
>>88015362>>88015384It's literally indistinguishable from any other basic text editor, you guys are just looking for something to complain about.
>>88015235Those who don't understand GNOME are destined to create a poor imitation of GNOME forever.
>>88015377Nevermind, it doesn't. I haven't used wordpad in a decade.
>>88015232>>88015235>>88015243>>88015261>>88015266>>88015278>>88015281>>88015287good thing i wont move to win11 for years to come. fortunately it's possible to use an old notepad.exe version or any of the many 3rd party alternativesalso pic rel
>>88015397Ah, that's too bad. I guess they probably did the math and figured if they put in a spell check enough people would stop paying for Word and just use WordPad for writing papers and shit. They're probably right desu
>>88015266GNOME understands UI/UX.
>>88015261>>88015266>new find/replace appears like a detached dialog box>but it's fixed in place>when doing bulk edits, the view bumps your text down to prevent obscuring>appears like it fucked the formattingwho the FUCK made this decision
Is it an Electron app?
>>88015404This infographic needs better font smoothing. Looks awful.
>>88015232>Where were youIn Sublime Text, most likely. Notepad sucks testicles. These overly large menus and dialogues are made for toddlers aka touchscreen/touchpad users.
>>88015337>they even removed the fucking preview of the font list because fuck youuh, anonsounds like you have a racism problem
>>88015418Nowadays everything is. There are no real coders working for Microsoft anymore, only "webdevs."
>>88015232*yawn* One comes up instantly even if your computer is swapping like crazy and out of RAM. The other takes its damn time in that situation.
>I love wasting spacefuck new UIs even when mutated to modern windows the win 9x notepad still looks better
>>88015232SOVL v souless
>>88015404god I wish I was getting paidthe point is that everyone on here is going to get mad about it>>88015418saw someone claim the memory usage is about x10 (so now around 20-30 MB)
>>88015426what the fuck is this from>>88015478gotta make it work better with tablets I guess? good information density makes normies get confused? idk
>>88015232still has shitty text aliasing. to the trash it goes
>>88015232>>88015261>>88015266>>88015278>>88015281>>88015287It's just an extremely stripped-down version of VSCode lmao
>>88015281whats with this giant-radiused rounded rectangles as buttons nowadayssame shit is happening to google stuff and androidfucking horrifying to look at
>>88015232>make everything bigger for mobile niggers on your desktop program>hide some options (not all of them) behind a wheel for some reasonThey're intentionally making things worse.
>>88015386>>88015232Example how those headerbars save vertical space compared to classic window decorations as done by Microsoft in that case.
>>88015232Crappy zoomer redesign. All it needed was dark mode and a bigger edit stack for the Undo. Regex find and replace would be nice but normies wouldn't know how to use it or care about it
>>88015232Is there a non-faggot mode?
>>88015637>>make everything bigger for mobile niggers on your desktop programThe subhuman retard who decided that desktop programs should be designed for that 0.00001% of people who use touch screens should be assassinated.Firefox did exactly the same the last time they redesigned Firefox, huge buttons everywhere in case your mouse disappears overnight and your screen becomes a touch screen because magic.
>>88015232uhhh light mode for win11? otherwise ill use the old one.
I bet it takes two seconds to open compared to the old notepadjust like the calculator takes two seconds to open compared to the old calculatorso I bet it's trash
>>88015287thank you sir
wangblows media player
>here's your 2022 consistent UI bro
>>88015232Not even the text editor in gnome3 wastes that much header space.. the fucking state of "modern" design
>>88015243The side menu is dumb and bloat. All you ever needed was the navigator bar at the top.
>>88015763/(G:)/ is not healthy
>>88015243Fuck touchscreen niggers but ironically the left one is better for them...Once again Micrococks outdid themselves.
the "progression" of word
SOUL VS SOULLESS
this pleases the zoomer
>>88015232when they fix it, i'll tell you.
I think the new task manager is fine, mostly because a lot of it looks very similar to the current one
>>88016063Can you still run it on top, have start-up programs etc?
>>88015232>Changelog:>Added support for dark theme>Developer note: sorry for the long wait, sirs, we'll finish fixing this excuse of a text editor in the next 20 years for sure.
>>88015232>>88015235>>88015243>>88015261>>88015266>>88015278>>88015281>>88015287Still sucks. Always will.
Dark theme is for transsexuals.
>>88016132i'm trans and I only use light mode
>>88016140That means you're reversing.
>>88016157I keep forgetting to dilate
>>88015407No it's cuz their lazy cunts
>>88016140Light mode users are trutrans
Notepad was already fixed but Micronignogs decided to make their own shit take on a notepad upgrade.https://github.com/vxiiduu/NotepadEx
>implying dark mode is anything new
>>88015232They literally just changed the UI and made it more windows 10/11 like. No changes or upgrades to its functionalities. They didn't "fix" shit.
>>88015232>Where were you when Microsoft finally fixed Notepad?I was using Notepads
>>88015791it's funny how we're supposed to buy 4k screens but then use apps made for 800x600 resolutions
>>88016697When you buy a 4K screen, do you want to put 3840x2160 of stuff on it, or would you rather have it hold 800x600 of stuff but make that stuff really fuckin big?
Do the OG Windows devs just not use computers anymore? They must hate the direction Windows 11 is going. Does no one at Microsoft object?
>>88015386Now use Adobe software LMAO
>>88015232>Where were you when Microsoft finally fixed Notepad?i was parsing jsons in my notepad++.
That “notepad update” is from 1 year ago, get something new
>>88015232It takes notably longer to open than the old version (which was instant), even on my system with a 5800X, 32GB of RAM and an NVMe SSD. Microsoft's incompetence is truly astounding. I guess that's what happens when you farm everything out to street shitters.
>>88015287>Privacy StatementIN A FUCKING PLAIN TEXT EDITOR
>>88016950Why should I when other free softwares do exactly the same?
>>88016671Notepads is perfecthttps://github.com/0x7c13/Notepads
>>88017203they put telemetry everywhere so they know what features people actually use
>>88015232I use VS Code for everything
Have they fixed the issue where the tab character is 6 spaces wide?
This shows how much the ability to update has improved the speed and efficiency at which developers can improve software. Microsoft is now able to bring one component of windows up to somewhat modern standards every three or four years.
Notepad plus fuck CCP
>>88015325I'll hand it to them - that's a very cute thing to do
>>88015548>good information density makes normies get confused? idkI've been told by 'professional developers' that, and I quote, "our studies indicate less information density reduces cognitive load".Somehow someone somewhere got paid to say water is wet and that being dry is good, and these cargo cultist motherfuckers don't even question when or how.I weep for the future.
>>88015696Touchpads unfortunately exist, are far more common, and are shit for accuracy.
>>88016950I don't use non-free software
>>88015898its funny how the first "word" a fraction of the ram used by word today and yet it has most if not all functionality you'll ever need unless you are a basedboy
>>88015671what's going on? are they rewriting each menu they make so they don't potentially break the previous one?
>>88015232lmao now the user interfaces are getting even more inconsistent. It's like microsoft looked at desktop linux where there's Qt and GTK and a million other things where everything is themed different and behaves completely different like some sort of collage of shit cut from magazines and taped together, and thought "hmm we need this in windows"
>>88015232It's been years since the last time I used Notepad but did they finally add the ability to do more than a single undo?That shit was always so infuriating compared to other text editors...
>>88017816>30 mb for a simple text editor
>>88015898bottom right looks like LO
>>88018429That's literally the minimum amount of memory a completely blank UWP will use.
>>88015898The third and fourth from top to bottom at the left look fine, why did they change it?. Ribbon is just the same thing but wastes more space.
>>88015935at least the CD is still there
>>88016838OG windows devs are still using win7, xp
>>88015325god bless this is soul desu
>>88015728right: gigasovlleft: sovlless
>>88015232thanks, but I'm sticking to Win10 LTSC.
>>88016838they probably work on something else or they retired already
>>88016645dark mode is a memeyou fell for a meme
>>88015235The message box in this picture should be the standard message box for windows 11 but instead we got the crappy and old message box
>>88017268And now is even faster than the actual Notepad, truly a travesty. Third party software (including heckin gamerinos) is what keeps Windows on life support.
>>88016131>Still sucks. Always will.Please elaborate on why it "still sucks" and "always will"
>>88016838Probably are on their 70s and switched to Macs because don't care anymore, implying they even keep using tech. Maybe they've a nostalgic PC with DOS/XP around.
>>88015426>MUH GNOME TEXT EDITOR!!!No one fucking cares pal
>>88016063This is what happens when you open RajeshPad in Pajeet 10.
>>88015384>Dark theme is le bad because it's just is ok?
>>88018835Hahahaha, how so?
>>88015232already been using notepads
>>88015232Thanks OP, I didn't know you could switch it to dark mode. IDEs take too long to launch so I use it for quick editing.
they should remove window shadows and bring back the thick borders of win8.1 :(also, the text fields and buttons have been become less visible in win10/11 compared to win8.1.
>>88015384my fucking video game has a dark mode
>>88018857I don't know how but you definitely are. I bet you'll still reply to this because you want to find out.
>>88015232Who the fuck cares, make your own text editors lazy niggers.
>>88015548>what the fuck is this fromgnome where else do you find fat headerbars and buttons?
>>88015396too much text
>>88017268finally a sane man
>>88016838David Plumer uses Win11.
>>88016645Give us the theme file for this
I'm no longer confident with running notepad as admin.
>padding between text and sides of notepadThey even made the fucking internal bars thicker?I swear they just pulled a UI slider all the way to the right and didn't care how much it fucked with.
>>88015232Can you now change to UNIX like ending without needing to open a file that already uses it?
>>88015232ok but can you insert a timestamp by pressing F5?
>>88015232it looks exactly the same as gnome text editor kek
>>88015424Visibly uses QueerType
>>88015232>Where were you when Microsoft finally fixed Notepad?On vacation
these fucks need to add basic layers/transparency/better cropping tools/rotation/free transfrom of selections.don't tell me to use paint 3d, some shit application that for some reason is both a 2d raster and 3d bloated program.don't tell me to use paint.net, also shit and I hate .NET trannies.don't tell me that's too many features or too advanced. the gulf between adding those basic things and something like photoshop is a few times bigger than the grand canyon.
>>88015232I am on windows 11 but still get the left 10 one why?
lol windows is becoming a webapp.
>>88020344bill gates hates you
>>88020240Affinity is lighter and basically photoshop
Use the better text editor
>>88016671>>88017268Is it possible to use this if you don't have Windoze Store?
>>88020466https://github.com/0x7c13/Notepads/issues/1072Nvm, into the trash.
>>88017268Doesn't support big files, Notepad++ will be then.
For straight up coding is there an advantage to using a text editor over an IDE and losing all the debugging featured
>>88017268>You won't be able to save files to system folders due to UWP restriction (windows, system32, etc.).>You cannot associate potentially harmful file types (.cmd, .bat etc.) with Notepads.>Notepads does not work well with large files; the file size limit is set to 1MB for now. I will add large file support later.Might as well install a Markdown visualizer for vscode

>>88015232>>88015235>>88015243>>88015261>>88015266The dark mode alone looks rad. Too bad I already found software to replace everything I did with Notepad.

>>88015935what the fuck is that metallic circle beside the screen?
with better defaults and a lot of the IDE features stripped down kwrite would be the best text editor.I love how the the winui programs look and function though, besides the onedrive cloud buttons in every single one of them

>>88016838i imagine they've either completely checked out from windows/the m$ software stack as a whole or they still shill microshit products relentlessly and dogfood the newest versions of everything because that's just how microsoft culture is - ballmer allegedly banned his kids from using google or ipods back in the 2000s and there was that one time he pretended to stomp at an iphone during a meeting. also most ex-m$ employees are old brainwashed cucky shitlibs who don't see anything wrong with microsoft as a company so there's that>>88019572plummer is one of the brainwashed ones, unfortunately

That's actually really disgusting. They've just rounded the corners and added padding to everything - wasting space. This is definitely regression
>>88015232Using notapad++ when i was in windows.Later, using Gedit when i move to linux.Now using Emacs, fuck MSnotepad, it doesn't have snippets, number line, systax highlight, minimap and auto-indent.
>>88015232I use vscode for notepad stuff.
>>88016645I mean, technically it is light mode that is new. Ms dos and command line Linux were all default dark mode.

>>88015232>>88015261>>88015266>>88015281This actually looks like a shitty version of a gnome text editor, what the fuck. I thought maybe they copy pasted apple, but the apple one isn't really like this.

So much space wasted on the document when you could have bigger bars!I would also want the scroll bar to hide even the document will scroll and be so small it takes pixel perfect placement to use it, in fitting with the modern ui style!
>>88015232Can someone explain why Microsoft has like a zillion dollars and it takes them multiple decades to do simple stuff like this?
