I am not a developer but I did read this:
If you're reading this, you're a developer. Please join: [lists.reprap.orgsmiling bouncing smiley

I have completed quite a bit of firmware customization and upgrading to my printer and so-far seems to be doing pretty well.

Lately I have been dabbling into the c++ things and would like to make a few changes.

I don't see myself taking up programing so I am not really interested in a paid editor program but something more along the lines of just being able to change a few lines in a c++ file.

What are your recommendations?

... for editing only a "syntax-highlighting editor" like Notepad++ is usefull ... otherwise one of the free IDE's like Eclipse ...

Check the atom editor. One of the most versatile and powerful editors out there.

emacs and vim are perennial favorites of programmers, but both will take some effort to learn.

Geany is very user-friendly, and available on Windows and Linux. It will recognise C++ (and many other languages) and highlight key words, auto-indent (if you want) and all sorts of other stuff. Depending on your operating system and compiler it can also compile from within the editor and report errors.

Try visual studio code, from Microsoft. Yes, Microsoft. It is, IMO, the best programmers editor on any platform (it's on Mac, Linux and windows)

First class git support, syntax highlighting for any language you can think of (including even openscad), regex search and replace, and so on.

It really is good, and I is free.
