What about the features that I requested a while ago, will they ever make it to a final version? I'm talking about a bookmark function, autosave function and a button that will make the ------------------------------- separate-sign for you.

Hello again! Another minor thing I've noticed, when I copy text from Win32Pad and paste it into WordPad, the text isn't copied as "plain text" -- the particular font and tab settings Win32Pad uses internally seem to be copied over as well.

It would be more consistent with Win32Pad's functionality, I think, for this data to be copied out of Win32Pad as plain text, rather than having all that rich text "baggage" along for the ride.

I am aware of this issue. I'll see what I can do.

Hi Genadi,

Would it be possible to enhance the Search & Replace dialog window, so that it would become possible to enter shortcuts for searching/replacing non-printble characters like the < tab >?
(or < even better > use regular expressions  :<img src="http://www.gena01.com/forum/Smileys/default/wink.gif" alt="Wink" border="0" />: )

A simple search and replace string could look like this:

search:  \t {for intance for tab}
replace: \n {for instance for newline character}


For expert search & replace it would be nice to be able to use regex.

What do you think?

I guess \t and \n could be added. I am not sure if I'll be adding full regex support any time soon.

I am not trying to diss anybody here, i've been rather pressed for free time. I am just quite busy lately.

Now about your post:
- Bookmarks and autosave.
    On my TODO list, but i need time to add this one in.
- Buttons on toolbar for lines.
   I will probably not add this feature in at this time.

OK, it just seemed strange that you didn't answer my questions, but anyway, I assume that the options I asked for are hard to implement? I can understand that it will take some time than.

But the separator sign shouldn't be hard to do, correct? But I agree, it isn't a much requested and cool feature, but I noticed that I need it, now I have to copy and paste everytime.

I used to use Win32Pad ver 1.0.13 and have now upgraded to 1.5.0 . There is something that really needs attention and that is the default .txt extension when saving or saving-as files. Would it be possible to allow for the user to choose the default extension to be *.* (all files) if that is what is desires and make this the default instead of the .txt extension.

The reason for this is that I very seldom create and edit .txt files. Most of the files I work with are .cgi and .htm files. The older version defaulted to *.* extension and I was able to save files (and save-as) files without having to change the drop down list extension value.

Thanks.

mmm.. Does it still add the .txt extension for you when you enter filename script.cgi? Or you just want to change the default filter?

Hi,

When I right-click over an url, the functions in the menu don't work as I would expect them to: "Lauch" opens an explorer window in the win32pad-directory (doubleclicking on the url works fine and opens the url in the browser); "select" and "copy" do nothing at all.
IIRC it worked as expected in an earlier version (don't know which one).

Greetings

PS: I'm using Win32Pad 1.5.0; Win XP; riched20.dll v. 3.0 5.30.23.1211

hi,

Thanks for win32pad 1.5.0. But I have trouble with brandnew diskettes when using your program on it, editing texts. Texts edited with win32pad 1.5.0 became unreachable (I cannot open them anymore) and I get a message that " diskette is not formatted do you want to format"? Diskettes are brandnew and from MMORE and Nashua two highly repected brands in the industry. Perhaps it is a fault within win32pad 1.5.0 Please take a look!
I tried to correct the problem using norton utilities 2002 and norton disk doctor. Disk doctor said the FAT was corrupted. I never had this problem before only on diskettes win32pad 1.5.0 was installed upon! Disk doctor corrected the problem somewhat and I was able to open and save to other diskettes my text messages.
Have a look into the matter please. Please answer!
best wishes

Gena01

Here is more info for this situation. There are several cases where this is an issue.

1) When I am opening a file, the default filter is *.txt and I have to switch it to *.* to look at the files in a folder for the simple reason that most of my files are not .txt files.

2) When I am saving a file using "Save As", if I do not switch the filter from .txt to *.*, it will add the .txt extension to my existing filename. For example, if I have a file named script.cgi and I want to save a copy of it in another folder, if I don't switch the filter to *.* then it will save the file as script.cgi.txt . Having made this mistake a few times, each time I have to go to Windows Explorer and rename the file back by removing the .txt extension. Needless to say, this is a bit of a problem.

3) The final case is if I am saving a new file for the first time, again I have to remember to switch the filter to *.* or else whatever I type in filename text box will have the additional .txt extension added to it when the file is saved.

Thanks for looking into this for me.

Mmm.. I tried researching this a bit. Still a bit unsure as to why what you are experiencing is happening.  I am going to try it on some of the floppies i got here.

In order for me to get a better idea of the problem you experiencing:
- What Operating System are you using?
- Does it write complete file onto disk?
- How big are the files that you are writing?
- Is the disk still readable on the same system just after write?

Anything else that might be helpful with reproducing and analyzing this issue.

Hi,


On the earlier issue (diskettes ruined) i talked to the system administrator and he thinks it is a hardware problem. Computers are brandnew and the diskette drives do something wrong. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for help!


Best wishes and big thanks for win32pad!

I'd like to add my thanks for Win32Pad, which is fantastic: small, fast, and effective!

I use the "go to line #" command frequently to navigate documents with voice-recognition.  In the 1.5.0 release, entering a number greater than the line count of the document results in an error message dialogue.  If possible, it would be more useful to go to the last line of the file without a dialog box if the line number entered in the dialog is greater than the number of lines in the document.
