Editing a Panel.CFG file ?

Recommended Posts

On a panel.cfg file I got from the library, there are no CR's(carriage returns) in it. All the lines are run together, but there are squares there, which I assume is supposed to be a CR. Is there a way to find & replace using Notepad? Do you need the ASCII character string codes for the symbols?Any info would help!ThanksRick

Try using wordpad to edit it instead of notepad. It will often correctly interpret these carriage returns. I like Wordpad better anyway since it has search and replace as well.Thomas
