Does anyone know if UltraEdit (and which version) supports the Unicode actually employed by LM/P3D for the Scenery.CFG and similar files?.

Cheers, Ed

Hi Ed,

I don't use Ultraedit, but Notepad ++ has what you're asking. It's free.

Also, Lorby_SI's Addon Organizer has an option to check the various *.cfg and *.xml files and correct the encoding if necessary

I'm in the office today, I can get back to you tonight on UltraEdit ... but Win10 basic Notepad supports UTF-8

Hi Rob, I'll appreciate your help tonight, since I have all my CFG files (and the corresponding TMC in AFS2) set to work with UltraEdit. I'm about to install P3Dv4 (v4.1) for the first time (finally my new video card has arrived) and would like to be sure my UltraEdit will not mess any of the P3D configuration files in case I have to edit them.

Thanks, Ed

Oh, in that case you don't need to worry at all, UltraEdit will NOT change the format.  Whatever format it reads will be the same format it writes.  With that said, if a 3rd party content provider has created the file in the wrong format then UltraEdit will save it in the same wrong format.  In those situations you will need to know what format to save ... UltraEdit has similar drop downs as Notepad except you can do it on the fly and not only on save.

Cheers, Rob.

Yes, I noticed that, but with a lot of more options.

Thanks for the clarification.

Cheers, Ed

Rob, I wanted to share with you that I've used UltraEdit for over 7 years and find it does everything I want to do and much more.  However, their price has more than doubled since I became a customer so I shopped around and found EditPad Pro cost much less and I've gotten to like its UI much better than UltraEdit.  I like how one can switch between different encoding and even switch to a binary view on the fly, and in the xml mode it provides a nice green highlight on  tags when all is well within or turns the highlight red when something is amiss such as a missing '/'.  Very nice product.
