EmEditor version: 7.00.9
When creating a new document, I often create a blank file in a certain folder and edit it in EmEditor.
With ‘Detect All’ enabled in the File tab of Properties dialog, EmEditor always opens a blank(0 byte) file as ‘UTF-16LE without Signature’.
I think it will be better if it follows the encoding settings of ‘New Files’ or there are separate encoding settings for blank files.
When the file size is zero, the encoding should be one specified in the “Opening Encoding” dropdown list in the File tab of the configuration Properties. I will fix that by the next minor version. Thanks!
