Darned Usable - Yet Another Reason that Notepad2 is the editor of choice and the magic of CR/LF vs. LF
Those in the know already love Notepad2 and have much respect for Flo's flow. But, just when I thought I couldn't dig it more, today I had to edit some CVS files that were on SourceForge. They are Unix files (meaning Line Feeds terminating each line [LF] rather than CarriageReturn/LineFeed [CR/LF]) and the FAQ said in no uncertain terms - be careful when editing these files on Windows.
That's advice that's always good to follow. Note only should you know your CR/LF status, but also whether you have Tabs vs. Spaces, and if you are ANSI or UTF-8 or Unicode.
Anyway, Notepad2 not only shows the the LF status in the status bar and optionally at the end of each line, BUT it also lets you CHANGE THE FILES STATUS by simply double clicking on the status bar indicator.
Fabulous. I was able to edit the Unix files without fear and with the confidence that the files I saved were correct. Slick.
