EmEditor cannot generate Alt+NumPad codes, 01 thru 08. The one that it CAN generate: ALT+10 – then causes EmEditor to refuse to save your file as ASCII – claiming data will be lost.
Whereas, for example, NotePad2 will generate Alt+NumPad codes.
(They appear inverted with a rounded box around them):
Interestingly, I can copy the codes from NotePad2 into EmEditor — which are then displayed as a graphic square and EmEditor will save the file without warning about data loss.September 13, 2010 at 3:04 am #8944Yutaka EmuraKeymaster
I don’t know about the other application you mentioned, but I didn’t know about ALT + numbers behavior. Both Windows Notepad and EmEditor insert the same symbols. I think that is the Windows behavior. Those are Unicode characters and that is why they can’t be saved as ASCII. You can save them as a Unicode file. The other application assigns ALT+0x as inserting control characters ( Advanced > Insert Special Character. I hope this helps.
Thank you!September 13, 2010 at 3:15 am #8946CrashNBurnMember
It’s an old method. DOS days or before.
Windows generally still supports it, depending on the Edit-Form type.
