I’ve reverted to version 5.0.4 (543) 32 bit, too.

All newer versions are not usable for me at the moment, i'm very tired to find and correct all the special characters, often more than ten or twenty times a day.

In addition to that, PSpad often crashes without error message and closes completely.

Regards
Roger

I've the same problem. (5.0.6 - 589)

In my case I'm editing simple html files saved on my local hdd.

As far as I can remember it's mostly corrupting a single "</div>" in a line.

I can't force this problem. It's happening randomly.

And of course my pspad is also crashing randomly.

I can confirm above behavior. What I can add is that PSPad crashes in, as far as I can see, in two circumstances:
- having opened and closed a lot of files. Rough guess: about 25.
- having opened about eight tabs and opening another one.

About this "ÿ" problem, I'm only sure about this: it happens when you switch to another tab/file and back. Yesterday I had created a new ASM file with about 30 lines. had to check something in another file and a line was corrupted. Repaired it, another switch, got back and.... same line was corrupted again.

What also seems to help: restart PSPad. I had times I had several errors in one hour, restarted PSPad and had no problems the rest of the day.

I really hope you can fix things. Good luck!

I would like to get some information, whether Jan is working on this problem.

For me a fix is essential for using PSPad in the future.
Because i still have to use 5.0.4 to get rid of these problems, i miss many new features ...

So i hope there is some checks or refactoring going on ...

@Ruud: i can confirm all your observations.

Regards, Roger

Hello

I am working on it, even slowly that I wanted.
I think version 5.0.7 is much stable in compare to 5.0.6

After the report I updated to 5.0.7, both at home and at work. At home I had no troubles so far. At work the first three projects that I opened had an empty editor page. Then I found out that where I expected the project name, the now famous "ÿ" was found. Side note: I cannot remember if that was mentioned as well in the earlier reports. I repaired them by editing the PPR files. Before opening the fourth project I opened its PPR file but from that moment on I had no problems at all for the rest of the day.
Yet I ran into another small bug. I'll make a separate topic for it.

#27 Many Crash, Many strange symbols

Posted by: sysmaya | Date: 2022-08-25 13:04 | IP: IP Logged

I am a PSPad user for over 10 years.
Crashes are more frequent now than in versions 4.0.
And now the insertion of strange symbols is very common.
I work in PHP and Jscript. What I have been able to observe is that the strange symbols are inserted 90% of the time where there is a closing bracket }
The error is random. Sometimes they insert themselves, by magic.
Sometimes when saving the document. Sometimes when switching tabs.

I find that inserting symbols is more common when working on ANSI documents
Today I'm going to download version 4.2 and hope those bugs go away.

PSPad is the best PHP & FTP editor (with bugs included) smoking smiley

I'm doing a little experiment...

Disable 2 options:
1 => Automatically close characters ({[>"'
2 => Smart character close

I've only been testing the experiment for like 24 hours...
And I haven't had the problem of the famous ÿ

No files have been damaged...

I did this experiment because I realized that the famous ÿ always appeared replacing one of those closing characters.

It seems that the experiment works.
