Notepad++ is opening file with wrong encode



  • Hi guys, i´ve got a previous version of Notepad++ in my desktop. All the .asp files that i work from there are saved in UTF-8. When the asp files are opened in my laptop, where I have a recent version of Notepad++, they are in UTF-8-BOM!? Anyone with the same issue? Thanks.



  • It looks like in v6.8.1 some terminology got changed.

    • UTF-8 without BOM became UTF-8
    • UTF-8 became UTF-8-BOM

    So most likely your files have the exact same encoding, just the old vs. new Notepad++ are using a different terminology.

    For reference see this commit.
