File settings

This is dialog box with settings, which depend of the extension of edited file, and concern only files with this extension. (These settings are stored in file files.ini).

At left top of then dialog box there is a list, which lines are groups of file extensions. If you select one of the lines, in other part of the dialog box you'll see settings for the selected extension group. The first point of the list is the special extension *, it is default, i.e. if some setting is nor indicated for other extension, it will be got from the settings for the extension *.

You can add new line with extensions, typing it in the input line under the list (extensions are delimited by commas) and pressing the button Add. You can delete one of the lines, selecting it by the marker and pressing the button Delete (the deleting really will be done only when you press the confirmation button Ok; if you press Cancel, the deleting will not done).

Every setting has a frame around itself, which is "unpressed", if the setting for the current extension don't exists an is got from the default. If you change the setting, it get "pressed", it means, that it is different from the default. To delete the setting (i.e. assign to it the default value), click on it by right mouse button.

Autodetect charset.
If it is on, the editor before reading a file scans its first lines to find there charset indication (for HTML-files) or tries to analyze frequencies of some letter combinations to detect the charset of the file. (Those combinations are described in charsets.ini).
Default charset
This charset will be used for file reading and saving, if another charset was not selected in then open/save dialogs.
Default surrogate
This surrogate will be used for file reading and saving, if another surrogate was not selected in then open/save dialogs.
Default Unicode representation
This is the manner, in which the editor represents unicode letters in files. If "-" is chosen, then they are represented binary (utf-8, utf-16) or are converted to the current 8-bit charset. If "&#DDDD;" is chosen, the editor reading a file interprets code &#DDDD; (where D is decimal digit) like Unicode letter, and writing a file it saves in such manner all Unicode letters, which are outside of current charset. If "\uXXXX" is chosen, then the editor process in same manner codes like \uXXXX (where X is hexadecimal digit). It is only default setting, which you can change in the open and save dialogs.
