I needed to ask if it is possible to copy rich text from Notepad++, and I realized that it's probably off-topic in most of the community I already know.

Is there a generic software community for asking this things?

To summarize the comments (thanks Satpal and S.L. Barth):

  • If it's a programming question (regex, macro...): Stack Overflow

  • If it's not a programming question (installation, interface...): Super User

  • Would you be willing to elaborate on this answer? There seems to be a lot of overlap between programming and-non programming question about Notepad++

On SO, You can use tag for your question. There are already 2000+ questions.

  • So it's possible to open questions on SO which are not strictly inherent to development? I like this a lot do you think this question is worth to be asked here on meta?
