#1 Old files with german character set

Posted by: idefix2 | Date: 2022-07-19 12:33 | IP: IP Logged

Hi, I have to work on old MSDos files with the german character set. The character set is correctly displayed by "Ansicht-OEM Zeichen", but the characters become extremely ugly and hard to read. I have tried a number of alternatives, either I get too big or too small characters, with which it is nearly impossible to work, and if I try and chose a normal font like Lucida, the Umlauts are not displayed correctly.

Hello

In the Encoding menu choose correct German OEM encoding and press Ctrl+R (Reload file)
If you don't see your encoding, press the modify item (on the bottom) and enable code pages you want to use.
