So I haven’t been using Atom long but so far, I like it. Coming from Notepad++, there are some things that I do miss however. These features may already be in atom and I just can’t find them or as a package in which I have used the wrong words while searching.
When I create a new file in Atom, I cannot set a language to it. In NP++ I would sometimes just open a new file just to write snippets with no intention of saving it but I could set the language so I got relevant syntax highlighting. Atom doesn’t seem to have this capability and it’s something I really need.
Another thing that NP++ has is that I can completely close it without saving files and come back and they’ll still be there. I have automatic updates set up on my PC so most nights my computer will reboot which means I lose any unsaved files in atom where NP++ keeps them. Also kind of related, If I set up package folders, I want them to remain there permanently. I don’t want to have to set them every time my computer reboots or I close atom for whatever reason.
