The easiest way to open a new document is to press Ctrl and N together. Then press Ctrl + S to save the file. The default title will be new with a number. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to get the File Save As option to rename your document. Use the Find and replace command to remove the desired text (Ctrl+H from the keyboad). NotePad++ can have a Menu Bar and Tool Bar displayed or hide them. Many like to use the keyboard commands and hide the toolbars. If the Menu Bar is open, File > New. From the Tools bar, click on the page symbol with the green + on the left side of the bar. The full manual is available as a compressed PDF or a compressed HTML file. See: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=NP%2B%2B_Guides . For either file, you will need to use your preferred zip program to extract the file. (In most Windows versions, right click on the file after saving it to the Desktop or your Downloads directory and choose Extract All.) Then use Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the PDF manual. Use your preferred browser to read the HTML version. A full list of the keyboard commands is available here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/notepad-plus/index.php?title=Keyboard_And_Mouse_Shortcuts . Nearly any editor will do what you want to do. In Windows, the Notepad may not hold enough lines for this. WordPad probably would work (that's the default .DOC reader). Just remember to save as plain text if you don't want to have an Rich Text Formatted document. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Solution 1.) If you have installed PDF maker, which can get installed when you install scanner software, the Excel add-on can potentially cause Excel to open slowly. This is more common in Office 2007.
* Close Excel and any other window you have open * Open "My Computer" and browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART *
* When you open Excel, check to see if the time it takes to open the xls/xlsx is shortened.
Solution 2.) This can be fixed by reinstalling Office but there is a faster way to fix this .
* Go to your Control Panel, (click on Start then Click on Control Panel) * Click on Folder Options, then File Types, * scroll down to and select (DOC for Word files) or XLS (for Excel files), * click Advanced and select Open entry, * click the edit Button. * deselect "Use DDE" * append "%1" (include the quote marks) to the end of the application command line, * Remove /dde if it is at the end of the command line * Then click on OK three times.
If the issue was being caused by DDE, then when you now open a Word doc file or Excel els; they will now open faster, without a long pause.

within the Set and Action menus. (Select the action in the Actions
palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
Set Play options for the droplet:
a. Override Action “Open” Commands
Open commands in the action refer to the batched files, rather than to
the file names specified in the action. Deselect Override Action “Open”
Commands if the action was recorded to operate on open files or if the
action contains Open commands for specific files that are required by
b. Include All Subfolders Processes files in subdirectories.
c. Suppress Color Profile Warnings Turns off display of color profile messages.
d. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs
Hides File Open Options dialog boxes. This is useful when batching
actions on camera raw image files. The default or previously specified
settings will be used.
Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.
You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and
folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands,
the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step
in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to
the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being
If the action includes a Save As
command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files
are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if
you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain
a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file
name; otherwise, no files are saved.

compression or TIFF options). To use these options, record them in the
action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make
sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.
you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention
and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
a. For File Naming,
select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to
be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include
document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file
extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any
serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter
“A” for the first file.
b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
b. Log Errors To File
Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors
are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the
error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
I assume you have tried the "reduce filesize" command. Try opening the file in Preview and print it - in the print dialog box select the pdf button, type a name and print. You get a file in the location you selected. This can reduce the size considerably.
