Notepad3 - text editor

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.

Notepad3 defaults to a different locale date and time format
You might have wondered if anyone else would care as you were drafting that, but this is actually a frustratingly common topic for me. Thanks for the excellent detail.

Don't tell me about frustration, this is one of my main gripes with most software I test. :(

So much so that I have come to take it for granted -- i.e., unless the dev expressly states otherwise, I expect formats to be excruciatingly non-compliant with international standards.

Thus, this effort isn't really selfless, it's here for the benefit of my future self... ;)

All of this is rather confusing because Notepad3 online help (https://www.rizonesoft.com/documents/) is void of any reference and so it took me days to figure it out.

Quick note to point out that Notepad3's Github repo (github.com/rizonesoft/Notepad3) does contain detailed info about the settings in 'notepad3.ini' file.
