#1 UTF-8

Posted by: MadCompie | Date: 2018-06-26 10:57 | IP: IP Logged

I open a XML file and but does not automatically load as UTF-8 because the file is too big (special chars at the end of the file).
So I set the coding to "UTF-8" and used the trick "reload".
This works very fine!
But when I change the same file using another program (also UTF-8 encoded) and do a save, PSPad detects automatically this file change and does a reload... but the reload is not in my UTF-8 choice anymore but in the original format, so the external changes are lost...

PSPad don't reload file automatically, it informs you about changes and requests reload.
In program settings / Files check remember file changes. PSPad should remeber file state include your UTF-8.
Maybe will be necessary to save file once after you change code page to UTF-8.

Very sorry, but unfortunately this does not work...
After the external edit+save PSPad asks me "file contents were changed, reload?".
If I answer "yes", the new content is present but the UTF-8 is changed back to ASCII...
