This one issue is your curse, isn't it, PsPad Master???
If you could fix this one thing, so that it never came back, you could *almost* just retire!!!

I had to stop using PsPad at my last contract job, because this popped up inside a comment, and broke our Git versioning software when I submitted merge request... they demanded that I switch to another editor, which really sucked...

Everyone has a demon or two, but this one you can't hide from at all, huh?!?! yawning smiley
I'm glad you continue to try to pursue it...

It happended to me just after installing the latest version. I am not sure, though, if these strange characters were already in the file before.
It was an ini-file, and the corresponding program just ignores such lines, so I can't say for sure how long they have alresdy been there.

It may be an issue that only happens when editing several files side by side. The reason I think this is the case is because this inserted text contained, embedded in the garbage, some short segments of text that obviously came from another file that I often edit in parallel.

Wow, not even two hours into using V5.07, and I got bitten by this bug...

I don't seem to be able to copy the entire trashed line, which is some 280 characters long. So here is an image of the entire trash-line:

Here is what the code looked like before being pspad-ed:

printf("Last logon: %s [%"PRIu64"]\n", ctm, (u64) max_logon_time) ; //lint !e571
#endif

// look at current time

Here is what the trashed section looks like in a hex dump:
023A0: 20 20 20 70 72 69 6E 74 66 28 22 4C 61 73 74 20 | printf("Last |

So it is only the #endif line which was destroyed...

I had the some problem in my php files with the latest version. In Version 5.0.4 this problem does not happen. Thats the reason why I downgrade to this version.
