I’m using latest 15.0.2 and loading some log files i always have this message on output area:
Inconsistent number of columns detected
How can i disable it ?

That’s because you are trying to open a CSV file but it contains lines where the number of columns is different from other lines. You can double-click on the message:
filename (number): Inconsistent number of columns detected.
and jump to the number’s line of the “filename” file, and correct the line by adding or remove a separator (usually comma).
If this is not a CSV file, you can simply ignore the message, and either (1) disable CSV detection by going to Configuration Properties – File tab and clear all the CSV files to Detect check boxes, or (2) Customize dialog – CSV tab and clear the “Validate CSV and Output Errors” check box.

I think we have a problem here. Please follow these steps:
1. Open a blank Excel worksheet
2. click on A1
3. Type line1
4. Press the ALT-Key, and hit the ENTER key
5. Type line2
6. Press the ALT-Key, and hit the ENTER key
7. Type line3
8. Click on B1
9. Type line1 hit ENTER
10. Type line2 hit ENTER
11. Type line3 hit ENTER
When I grab A1 through B3 and paste it on EmEditor with Tab separated file, it gives me this error. It should not. I just have 6 cells. 1 cell (A1), has 3 lines; 3 other cells have 1 line. The problem is that EmEditor is not recognizing single cells with multiple lines. This is the representation of this copy and paste on this forum:
If I paste this on EmEditor, it gives me 3 errors. It’s not an error because it’s a correct Tab separated syntax. Or am I wrong? Thanks for your wonderful tool.

Please make sure that Tab-separated CSV definition includes “Allow delimiters in double quotes” and “Allow newlines in double quotes” options enabled. These options are disabled for Tab-separated by default.
After I enabled these options, I couldn’t reproduce the issue anymore.
