#1 Weird characters shown and saved randomly

Posted by: bajlo | Date: 01/22/2016 16:42 | IP: IP Logged

Hi,

I use pspad as a main php editor and I love it. But will have to leave because there are weird characters that are shown and saved randomly to my server. I don't mind a problem on the attached picture, but the software randomly saves those characters to filenames or to files as a content.

Name of the menu item comes from language localization.

I've complained about this too, but it never gets anywhere.
I get strange, unrecognizable characters randomly inserted into my files when I open/save them. What's scary is that I don't know they were inserted until I run the (php) script and it fails because of invalid characters in the code. Then, I have to go find and remove those crazy characters!.... very very scary that an editor is doing this on its own.

Our programmers have reported this problem too, we are using PSPAD version 4.6.2 (2745)

Original Code, without these binary chars:
COMPUTE I050-NIVEL = W-GRCANT + 2,

Jan, please, check this problem, it seems very scary because it can insert bugs in our source code causing execution errors very difficult to find.

Thank you!

Like bajlo | Date: 01/22/2016 16:42 (first post above),

I had that issue of displaying a unicode sign with pspad500b066.

With German language file, there was a unicode sign
in between of the item "Datei" (looked like "DaX|ei")
in Tools-Panel > Favorites > Datei

rs_LinkFile=Datei
rs_LinkFile=Files

After a restart of pspad500b066, "Datei" was spelled correct again.

A colleague recorded this vídeo to show the problem when strange chars appear in te middle of source code.

When moving the cursor in the source code some chars changes near strange ÿ char (hex=FF / bin=255 char).

Hi Jan, with PSPad 5.0.0 this has not happened anymore, but my 'beta testers' has reported several exceptions, when they can save the text I have sent to you.

Thank for your Job with this great tool!!!

Thank you!! I sent one to you on Friday and today one more. Please let me know if you do not receive it, our mail server (@rech.com.br domain) has many spam rules and eventually the emails are not sent.
