Encoding

Set the file encoding, e.g. ANSI or UTF-8. The selected encoding is used when saving the document to file.

 


Newline format

Windows, Unix and Mac use different characters to indicate a new line. You can use these menu items to convert a document between different formats.

 


Change document encoding to

Convert the document between different character sets. E.g. if you open a Russian ANSI file on an English version of Windows, the Russian text is completely unreadable. Select the menu item "Cyrillic" and the document is converted using this character set. The Russian text should now be readable.

 


Convert file encodings...

Use this tool to convert the encodings of files on disk. Convert between ANSI character sets, ANSI to Unicode or between different Unicode encodings. You can select as many files as you want and preview the files to be converted. There are also options available to backup the files and to undo the entire operation. More...
