      Hi John,

      Thanks for the tip. I wonder how many other settings in the options have I
      not seen all these years. Actually, setting the "Options | Documents |
      Format Save As:" to "windows" DOES
      work for existing documents (unless you have over ridden the setting via a
      right click). It even
      works for docs that are already loaded. Try it. Load some docs of various
      types, change the
      "save as" mode and then right click on the tabs to verify the "save as"
      mode. Anyway, what
      used to take forever (30 seconds or more for large files) is now down to
      less than a second.
      RegEx rocks!!! [But I do wish it had easier syntax.]

      Yes, I knew you did your clip processing between the two replace
      statements. However, my
      first attempt at a one liner didn't work so I tried your sequence. Then
      comparing them I found
      I had missed a caret before the %NL%. RegEx is nice but it is extremely
      picky about syntax.

      Regarding the Unicode, I don't run into Unicode files very often but did
      discover that copy and
      save trick. I noticed that the "Options | General | Protect Unicode Files"
      had been checked by
      default. Would unchecking it eliminate the need to copy and save? I don't
      have a known
      Unicode file to check it out.

      Thanks again, Art
