Thanks for the info. I hadn’t been aware of that particular issue, and I’m glad it’s been fixed for you. The 0xFF character has a special meaning to Multi-Edit, but if you’ve opened a file in binary mode, the only way an 0xFF character could be present is if it were part of your data, as loading in binary mode prevents the normal translation of tab (0x09 or \t) characters into sequences of 0x09 followed by 0xFF that occurs when a file is loaded as a non-binary file (whether there are any tabs of any sort present will depend on the tab/space translation settings applicable to that file when it was last saved).

Sorry for the lecture; I’ve given too many, and it gets to be a habit. :)

Oh, totally OT, my brother, who’s a rock guitarist (yeah, the family shame…couldn’t be a decent rock keyboardist like me :lol: ) surfed through here the other day, and wondered about your alias, inasmuch as the very famous PaulMc… is known to be a computer buff. Anyway, he wanted me to ask. :oops: (No, really, it’s not for me; it’s for my sister-in-law’s kid brother… :D ). I told him, naw, the real PaulMc… wouldn’t use such an obvious alias; he’d use something like “Dirk McQuickly.” And on that totally obscure allusion, I hereby absquatulate from this thread.
