making text files Window-compatible?
Posted: Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:26 am
I use a text editor a lot, mostly Leafpad, and sometimes use Notepad in Windows to access the same files. At that point their formatting is messed up. I'd like to know if it's possible to alter a configuration file so that my text files are always Windows-compatible without having to edit them again in Windows. I can see there are some parameters in most text editors that would presumably begin to facilitate this (CR, LF, CR & LF UTF-8 etc...), but I would like things set permanently so that I don't have to do things manually with each saving of a file and each reuse in Windows. If I have to move away from Leafpad I will to do this, but I have warmed to several of the 'LXDE-flavoured' applications in the last couple of years regardless of what DE I'm using and those parameters are still available with this simpler editor. I don't want to convert files or use an application to do that in batches of activity, but to have Leafpad set so that it is already making files fit for both operating systems. So can this be done?
