Thanks for the continuous help Crash,

The problem is, I don’t want to save, I only want to know the proper specs when I open a file. This is especially important for like .srt (subtitle files for media files)

They need to be in a specific format or they are not recognized (correctly).

Western-European = ISO 8859-1, e.g. English ANSI

So, how do I recognize a Unicode format file then ?
It would be much easier if the status bar gives a more detailed info like Ansi or Unicode, same for the line ending format.

I have no single clue of the line-ending method used if the status bar says no more than “Western-European”
