I would like to use Notepad++ on Android, if possible. The only thing I found was this app, which, unlike the regular Wine, seems to emulate an entire Windows system. The only problem: I can't enter text. Surely I could connect a Bluetooth keyboard, but at that point I might as well take a laptop with me. I've also tried simulating a press of the Alt key using the app "XPosed Edge", but that doesn't open the keyboard, unlike in some other situations. Even when I let XPosed Edge enter a preset text, it does not appear in the console window in Wine.

So how do I enter text in this app? Alternatively, is there a different way to get Notepad++ running on Android (or is there a proper app with all of its features)?

  • This thread suggests installing extra software just to open the keyboard, which I not only find strange, but I also doubt that it works, since entering text with XPosed Edge didn't work. – Fabian Röling Jul 17 '19 at 20:47
  • Not related to question, but notepadqq is a linux alternative and for android try DroidEdit – alecxs Jul 19 '19 at 12:04
