Line feeds suddenly appearing at the end of lines and ruining document

  • I have run into a problem with editing files. I will be working on a large file when suddenly I will see LF in black appearing at the end of lines and the internal file format changing, ruining the file. I try saving frequently but that doesn’t always work and it is getting irritating to lose all my work. Is there a fix for this. I work with some pretty large save game files as a playtester and have never had this problem with ++ before.

  • Make sure you have periodic backups turned off! This will most definitely cause it to happen. The problem is if a backup happens in the middle of another operation (e.g. replacing all instances) then the file can get corrupted.
