Notepad++ is best notepad

Nope, I prefer UltraEdit. Notepad++'s search is a nightmare.

What do you find to be a nightmare in Notepad++ search... never really had any issues with it myself and I'm curious.

I often had to spend days going through 100mb-3gb sized logs at my previous job. It's been more than a year though, so I don't remember all the issues I had, but the main one is that when you search, it adds line numbers and spaces to the output. So when you try to copy the search into another document to trim the logs, it would add unremovable spam to them. If you had to do a search on the search, you then had twice the spam and so on. Also, when you copy from the search window, it copies the contents of the previous searches too and adds even more spaces. Another issue is that it will put the same line multiple times in the output if the search string is there more than once, which makes reading some logs extra confusing, especially if having the same log line twice is something that actually could happen.

UltraEdit has none of these issues and going through logs with it is at least twice as fast.
