Hello,I own Matlab R2013a and I have tried changing the editor in HOME > ENVIRONMENT > PREFERENCES > EDITOR/DEBUGGER > EDITOR > TEXT EDITOR and selecting the .exe file of Notepad++.
The thing is that when I click APPLY and then OK and I open a new script nothing is affected, the same old default editor pops-up, although the notepad is selected.
Could anyone give any suggestion please? Thank you!

I am getting the same.
I think this is a genuine bug... There are other bugs with the editor in 2013b release (the breakpoint and play stop button controls don't seem to work either).
I have raised a bug report via:

This is still a bug in 2015b.
