Bug or feature ?



  • Hi,

    I create with (windows) Notepad such a sourcecode:
    …VALUES (‘DEBoardPageNames’, ‘1³2³3³4³5³6³7³8’);

    Notepad++ 5.9 shows the file in the same way

    Notepad++ 6.9.1 shows the file this way:
    … VALUES (‘DEBoardPageNames’, ‘1???’); -> ForumSoftware Promlem: You should see 7 questionmarks!

    When I save this file with Notepad++ 6.9.1
    and I reload it with Notepad (windows), it has been changed into this:
    … VALUES (‘DEBoardPageNames’, ‘1???’); -> ForumSoftware Promlem: You should see 7 questionmarks!

    Is this a Bug ?

    Thanky You
    Wolfgang



  • Hello @Wolfgang-S.,

    I assume this is an encoding/charset issue.

    Would you mind doing the following?

    Settings->Preferences->Misc
    uncheck autodetect character encoding

    Cheers

  • Hi Claudia,
    this solves the issue. So it seems it is a feature.

    This caused quite a riot here in the company. 3 People verifying a half day sourcecodes delivered the last two years whether source code has been changed unwanted. (No problem found).

    Thank you for you Answer.
