UTF-8 doc becomes ANSI doc !
I assume we have the same understanding so I’m interested to know
what I have written that could be misunderstood?
Could you point me to my error?
Thank you and cheers
Not quite an error, but
I would also find it very useful if the setting
New Document->Encoding: UTF-8 and Apply to opened ANSI files (or any other configured encoding)
would force npp to treat all new opened documents as “configured encoding” when
auto detection of encoding has been disabled.
would require an implicit conversion to UTF-8. And besides breaking the principle of not doing changes without user action, it will pop up a whole bunch of other issues.
I agree that this would break the principle but on the other hand it could be beneficial as well.
But, now as I’m typing I’m thinking, when this conversion takes place and you don’t know from which encoding it came from
you might corrupt the document without knowing how to fix it.
Yes - bad idea.
