Notepad SX (notepad replacement)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Notepad SX (notepad replacement)

#1 Post by Midas » Thu Apr 16, 2015 9:02 am

Couldn't find anything about it around TPFC and decided it was worth a post: Notepad SX is a 32 bit only Notepad replacement with a slew of interesting features (e.g., text to speech); only an installer is provided for download, but is was susceptible to (Uni)extraction and, upon testing in Windows 7 x64 SP1, it seemed to be natively portable -- a 'notepad.ini' settings file was created in program folder.

NotePad SX is not only the great looking replacement and upgrade of standard Windows Notepad, but it gives you an ability to feel the power of plain text editing with many additional abilities.

Download Notepad SX latest release (currently v1.2) from http://www.rf1.net/software/notepad.

Please note that there's a more advanced payware version called Notepad SX Pro, which is currently v1.4.

  • Confirmed. I got the same result on Windows 7 x64 SP1 (either installed or not). I wasn't sure about what was breaking Notepad SX toolbar icon libraries -- could it be a matter of resolution, since 'ICL' filenames apparently imply 24x24 maximum... :?

    IMHO, it should be assumed from this that Notepad SX v1.2 is not fully compatible with Windows 7+.

    Notepad SX Pro, at a later v1.4 and not portable (saves settings to '%APPDATA%\NotePad_SX_Pro'), isn't affected:
