    I would ask this question on the Notepad++ forum, but, as best as I can tell, you can't register there.

    Anyway, my question is, I know you can't underline and bold natively in Notepad++, but is there some way to do it with a plugin or something?

    Isn't the point of Notepad and Notepad++ to just configure basic text that lacks formatting? Otherwise you need an actual word processor.

    I don't think N++ supports rich text.

    You can just use wordpad if you need something fast.

    You might be able to trick it by writing a language plugin for it, so that it is bolding what it thinks are syntax but I doubt it's worth the effort. As said above there are better tools for the purpose.
