Notepad++ Changes Tilde's in File to Line Feeds



  • Hello!

    I am having an issue with my Notepad++.
    I have a file that has the tilde (~) symbol as a column separator within a text file, but my Notepad++ for some reason changes the ~ symbol into a line feed when I load the file into my Notepad++.
    So it goes from this:

    Jon~Smith~01/01/1969~M~

    To this:

    Jon
    Smith
    01/01/1969
    M

    I am wondering if someone can help me out and let me know if there is something within my settings that I need to change or whatever fix there is to get this file to display correctly.

    Thanks!!

    sound strange, can you upload your data file?

  • Hi!
    I unfortunately can’t post a file.
    The line that I have listed in my post is the closest example I can provide.

    Thanks!



  • @infoalisaa

    the reason why asking for the file is because I assume that it
    isn’t an ascii tilde but something else.
    Why do you assume it must be a tilde?
    Because some other app is showing it like that?
    Can you create such a file with this app and upload it?

    Cheers
