I'm using Notepad++ which is great, I don't need a WYSIWYG editor but I just started working on a project that is using datatables and it would be a lot easier to be able to add columns in a visual editor. Is there any plugin for notepad++ that does this?

  • Are they just plain-text tables or have some special format? – martineau Dec 24 '12 at 17:15
  • @martineau Aside from some attributes they are regular tables. I don't mind copying and pasting them into an app to quickly add columns etc. – Anagio Dec 24 '12 at 17:16
  • What what I've read, Notepad++ has Column Mode Select keyboard shortcuts, Alt-Shft-Arrow keys or Alt + Left mouse click which might be all you need. – martineau Dec 24 '12 at 17:22
  • @martineau that just let's me select a specific column area in the source. Not really useful. – Anagio Dec 24 '12 at 17:33
  • If you do a Google search for "Notepad++ column mode paste" you'll see the column selected can then be pasted. – martineau Dec 24 '12 at 17:35

I ended up finding this site http://www.html.am/ which has I believe ckedit on it and lets me easily add / edit the columns and table which I can paste in. Seems to be the only way other than installing dreamweaver.
