- Jun 3, 2005Hi loro & sisterscape,
Just a short comment - long version below. If NoteTab sees binary
characters it will mark the opened file as read-only. In this
case, it would probably be safe to click on Document and uncheck
Read-only if it is checked. Then do your replacements.

binary documents such as *.doc, and *.exe, etc. I suggest you
read this in full as well.
Some servers and programs add a binary character at the end of the
files. This is usually the case when you know they are text based
files such as.txt and .htm. NoteTab detects the character and
warns you that it may be a binary file like .doc, .jpg. NoteTab
replaces the null character (binary value of no importance
usually) with a replacement character. That assumes you have your
binary features checked under the Files tab in Options. You can
see the character in Options | File | Binary Replace Character.
When NoteTab replaces it it also marks the file as read-only in
You have a couple of options to take. One is if you know for sure
the file is a text based file, take it out of read-only from the
Document menu at the bottom and then Ctrl+End to get to the bottom
of the document. This assumes that is where the binary/null
character is and where they are normally inserted at. The NoteTab
default replacement character is the center dot/center period. If
you see it at the bottom, delete it and then save the file. If you
upload to the server and then download again, and the same thing
happens you can use the second option.
The second option is to uncheck all the binary warnings in Options
| Files. You can get there from the View menu. There are three
binary options to be concerned with. Actually, you can leave the
warnings there if you don't mind the error message every time you
open one of these files. If you turn off all three, then just
remember that you did so and do not try to edit true binary files
like .doc (MS Word) files - you will surely corrupt them.
The following is from Help (under the File tab in Options).
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
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.
