He'd have to say for sure, but it's probably non-printable non-plain-text characters that aren't in the default character table.  They show up as boxes when pasted to plain text.

Yes, I think you're right - (Another thing Notepad won't do!!)

Quick guess is that they're not text characters of any kind, but hard carriage returns or something, more like command codes. So get this, when I open up the offending file in Notepad, they're boxes, but if I open it in Wordpad (as text) and resave it (as text), they're all fixed.

It would be neat if this app meant I could skip that too... I might have to beg and plead for the menubar so I can switch! :)

Could you possibly try recreate the carrage return thing in EasyPad for me so I know if I need to fix this? :P

Im on a mission adding everything else, so you may just get a menu bar in the next few builds!  :D

Yay the menu bar is there!

There seem to be some bugs in the toggles though.

It gets stuck on some of the commands, so "close menu bar" toggles BOTH on and off, "Allow Window Move" and "Show Window Frame" seem to be both the same type of feature and then they toggle each other on and off etc.

Heh oops - "Open" doesn't work for me at all!

Even "Open With" just gives me a blank app.

I found/made a test case for the "unknown character" part. Heh - but I can't open it in EasyNotes!: )

Not able to open anything either. Using Crtl+O or via the menu. Worked ok in the 1st version.

Thanks Stephen.

Is or could there be a way to set a user defined window size when EasyNotes is started?

The window size (Even in 1.0.72) should already be saved when you close the window.  It doesnt save the location yet (As far as I can remember) as I am pretty sure I didn't get around to adding that yet.

The things that save as of current (v1.0.72) are:

  • Background Colour
  • Font Colour
  • Workspace: Password
  • Workspace: Lock Status
  • Window Size

If any of those don't save in v1.0.72 please let me know :)

Eep! I deleted my copy so I can't test - how big of a file can this handle comfortably? I just got into some Directory Readers lately, which list every file you have, and those files can come out 90 megs!! (Yikes!)

Even Notepad struggles with those, so I turned to the web to find a couple high-performance editors. The funniest one is http://www.movsd.com/thegun.htm - The Gun (Grown Up Notepad) shrunk down to minimalist glory of 6k (!!) which is coded apparently in Assembly and drills out huge files. (See also apparently next-generation TopGun with more features.)

Eep again!

That's the copy that won't open files!

So I guess I just have to wait for your next released version!
