What could "Strip HTML" destroy? It always creates a completely separate
.txt file and never touches (and even automatically closes) the original
On my version of NoteTab (4.82) the document is not checked as Read-Only.
Clicking Read-Only on and off doesn't make any difference.
- Hi Tom,
>What could "Strip HTML" destroy?Oops! :) You are correct in that case.

I have all three of the following checked. Perhaps that makes a
Filter Binary Codes: By default, if you try to load a file that
contains null characters (a character with a decimal value of 0),
NoteTab will treat the first occurring null as the end of the
file. This option lets you override this behavior by allowing
NoteTab to substitute null characters with another character
defined in the "Substitute Binary Character" field. When set, you
can load the full content of any type of file (including
binaries). Important: saving files which have had characters
substituted will not restore the control character! This option
slows the loading of large files, so do not set it if you use
only true text files.
Warn Partial Loading: Warns if a file has only been partially
loaded due to the presence of null characters. This option has no
effect if "Filter Binary Codes" is set.
Warn Binaries Substituted: Displays a warning message if binary
characters have been substituted in the loaded document.
You get the warning, it is not marked as Read-Only, but yet you
cannot edit the file. Is that correct? Do you see your binary
substitution character? Look down at the bottom of the file.
The default is a dot --> · <-- centered in the line.
You can use Document | Insert File... to put the text into a new
document and if I remember correctly it will not add the binary
portion of it.
