Customizing Notepad++ to look like Sublime Text 3

I use notepad++ a lot in my work on php code and general text editing. I love the software’s features and how quickly it loads a text file. I’ve also been testing out Sublime text 3 but didn’t quite think it was as good as notepad++ but I loved the visual style they use.

If you want to make notepad++ use a darker theme and the same text colours as sublime text do the following:

Settings >> Style Configurator

1) Select Theme = Monokai
2) Style >> Default Style >> Font Name = Consolas
3) Font Size = 12

Now save and close the window. Restart Notepad++

EDIT: If you want an even more authentic font then you can install this custom TTF file which is a clone of the apple Menlo-Regular developer font.

I personally prefer Consolas though as it works nicely even on remote desktop screens.
