I am happily using Notepad++ for a long time, but there is one thing that this editor lacks: an "Open resource" dialog, as in Eclipse, that allows opening of files in project folder (and subfolders) by their names. Is there anything like this in N++ world?
After reading more about this Open Resource dialog, I don't think that Notepad++ has anything that replicates it exactly.
there are two plugins that come pretty close however:
Explorer pops up a file explorer sidebar to navigate files
File Switcher lets you switch between open files using the keyboard.
You could also use NPP Exec to run an external search command like
All of those are available at the N++ plugins page.
This small piece of software could become handy: http://www.launchy.net/

Try the Open Files In Solution plug-in.
If you have used Eclipse or Visual Assist(VAX) in Visual Studio you know what this is all about.
If not it lets you index specific folders and possible specific types of resources (xml-, cpp, py-files) for a fast indexing of files.
