Notepad++ is great in replacing text, it even allows multiline replacements with the extended rules (\r\n etc.).

However, the dialog neither displays search texts in multiple lines nor is the textbox long enough to distinguish long items. A picture may say more than thousand words:

Notepad++ with lines too long

Unfortunately, the dialog can also not be resized to make the input box larger. Meanwhile, the dialog can be resized.

So I am looking for

  • a Notepad++ plugin
  • for Windows
  • which is gratis
  • that has longer input fields
  • has multiline input fields and can search with simple line breaks (\r\n aka. true Enter) instead of escaped line breaks (\\r\\n aka. </kbd>, r, </kbd>, n)

Was that clear enough?
