I’d say the fact that you missed the control that was there sort of makes my case. [/quote:3ew3odgh]

I disagree. There is nothing in that little box to tell the user that its ‘a control’. If there were the word ‘dos’ or ‘unix’ or ‘cr’ or ‘crlf’, or something in there it would a) not mess up the interface, b) be usefull and out of the way and use the same control thats already there, and c) let the user know thats a control.

By the way, I hardly ever edit unix type files, but whenever I run across a perl script that is, I always have to stop for a moment and concider why the display is so screwed up.

I vote we put a simple string in that (now empty) control to let the user know of the line ending type.
