Q: I just installed this version from the installer.
The program font used for the dialogs, field labels, etc.
and the project folder names in the tool panel
has been changed to what looks like Comic Sans MS.
I can't seem to find where to change this back.

A: Edit file .\Language\English.ini (or your language.ini)
and on the begin remove or comment comic font
and uncomment standard dialog font.

Q: If you undo all the way back to the file where it was not modified,
shouldn't the editor not prompt you to save?
Or shouldnt the little red corner on the tap disapear too?

PSPad base editor component hasn't this support.
When new version of this component will be available, I try to add this functionality.

Q: Search and replace didnt work as expected.

A: Replace from the end. Its base component limitation.
1. Stay at the end of the file (or end of the part you want to replace)
2. set direction to Backward
3. Do replace

Yes, its workaround.
I will not correct it now, because its part of 3rd party editor component.
After implementation of new component version will be it ok or I will wrote own search engine.

Q: Could anyone explain me Reformat, and what are the differences between
Reformat (paragraph=blank line) and Reformat (paragraph=short line)?

A: Reformat delete line breaks and make new format of paragraph with right edge.

paragraph=blank line
its mean that paragraph end is blank line. All to blank line is taken as one paragraph

paragraph=short line
paragraph end is sort line (about half of right edge)

Line wrapping, Wrap mode, WordWrap, Paste, Undo

Q: Line wrapping behaves weird.
It often misplaces the cursor after inserting or deleting text in a line.

Sad, but the word wrapping doesnt work very well.
The soft modus works quite imprecisely.
There is still a horizontal scrollbar. As well in the hard modus, the editor doesnt react if you cut or paste something.
If it works, the editor does line breaks inside of a word.

For instance many times when I'm typing, the words simply do not get wrapped.
When I save or paste, certain lines get wrapped and moved around and the cursor
also moves out of position. Sometimes the text also moves out of where it should
be. Sometimes when I type after a paste, words appear on the wrong line.

Word wrap has a few bugs, you can search the forum about this topic.
It is a bug in the used editor component SynEdit
and the people how working on SynEdit try to solve this.

-----------------------------------------------

Q: weird undo behaviour, weird paste behavior
sometimes it does undo or paste anywhere around the right place
(a line before, 3 letters after...) but it just can't do it in the right place.

The way to replicate this undo error is as follows:

type some text (foo) and select it.
Press CTRL-C.
Press CTRL-V (effectively the copied text is pasted over the still selected text, and no change is visible other than the selection disappearing)
Press CTRL-z (Undo).

The result is the selected text coming back, but a copy of the text is added.
This behaviour still occurs in latest 4.3.2 (2037) beta.

A: Don't use WordWrap function read more...

-----------------------------------------------

Q: I can not use the Word Wrap switch. Neither in the Toolbar nor via menu.
I tried switching the word wrap checkbox in the settings menu, but that did not help.

A: If you have enabled TrimTrailing spaces, WordWrap is disabled.
You can read it in FAQ in help too.

Update:

you can search and replace multi line regex via an script
and so use the regex engine of VBS/JS.

Try

or
"poor-man-s-REplace"
from our user 'vbr'

Quote:
Some time ago, I decided to write quite a dirty
javascript for this (by far not as user friendly as
PhReplace - without any GUI,
for the beta version 4.5.3 2262 and above only):

www.vbr.wz.cz
forum.pspad.com

or
Use code from our user 'Scott Greenberg'
see GoGoModule.vbs
gogogadgetscott.info
as basis and wrote your own script

Q: I was working on an ftp-page that has Upper case file names,
and found them converted to lower case after saving.
Is this a bug, or did I miss some setting?

A: Please, next time look carefully into FTP cnnection settings dialog.
You will find one interesting option [x]Change file name to LowerCase.
