Notepad3DS is a text editor for the Nintendo 3DS.

Features

  • File opening/saving.
  • Search for terms in a file (will only find the first occurence)
  • Jump to beginning/end of a file.

Installation

Available in 3DSX and CIA formats.

  • CIA - Install the .cia with the CIA manager of your choice.
  • 3DSX - Use the .3dsx provided with the Homebrew Launcher.

User guide

Notepad

Text inputs are displayed on the top screen and instructions are on the bottom screen of the 3DS.

The bottom screen is also used to show information about the file and some error messages, such as file opening failure.

Each line can hold a maximum of 1024 characters when edited.

If a line with more than 1024 characters is edited, it will be truncated with no way of undoing this.

Save files

The 3DSX build will save/open files the /3ds/ directory. Prefix ../ to your filename to access the root folder.

The CIA build will save/open files from the root / directory. You can access files in other directories from here, e.g. 3ds/files/example.txt.

Note: Notepad3DS can access directories but cannot create them. Saving a file to a non existing directory will not save the file correctly.

Controls

A - Select the current line

B - Start a new file (with confirmation)

X - Save current file

Y - Open a new file

R - Search for a term in the file

D-Pad/C-Pad - Movement up/down

L - Hold with movement to jump to beginning/end
