Hello,

hi, confirmed that PSPad saves always with an extension, defaulted to ".txt" even if you explicitly change the mask to *.* and save something like "somefilename." (with the dot at the end)

Yes, I tested it. Unfortunely it needs code fix.
After fix (in next developer build) when you change filter to *.* in default you will save file without extension.

For now only workarround is to create user highlighter, add file mask *. (nothing else can be done) and use this highlighter for editing files

It works!
Funny thing is that the files without an extension are automatically opened with the (in my case) EmptyExt highliterwinking smiley
