18707Problem in copying/pasting extended-ascii characters
- Apr 23, 2006I was using the NoteTab editor under Windows98 for five years without
problems of copying/pasting texts with extended-ascii characters. You
could see my web page (www.qsl.net/ve3xpl/) composed mostly in Polish
language with its diacritical characters. Character encoding followed
an ISO-8895-2 standard.
Recently, I bought a new computer with Windows XP system and
discovered that the NoteTab editor corrupts copied texts with
extended-ascii characters. Only 6 of the total 18 extended-ascii
characters in Polish language are copied/pasted correctly. I checked
this function on 4 other text editors (Notepad, etc.) and they
handled extended-ascii characters correctly. I also checked
copying/pasting on another XP computer and the NoteTab worked ...
So, the problem seems to be in my computer. Indeed, I provided the
Language Support (Polish font and keyboard-input) to be able to
compose and read Polish texts. A similar support I had in my old W98
computer. I think the language support does not influence
copying/pasting function of a text editor (only a screen display), but
if so, why only the NoteTab is effected? Is it something pecular with
NoteTab setup that I am missing to know?
I have spent hundereds of hours in troubleshooting this problem and in
surfing the Internet, searching for help. I am running out of ideas
to solve it (new computer, new Windows, new language support, same
NoteTab - where to look and who to ask?). I like the NoteTab and want
to stay with it. I will appreciate any help.
