    Hello,

    I have a Windows 7 Pro system and I use to edit some Fixed Lenght txt files with Notepad.
    The data imported in Notepad are correctly formatted i.e. I see them listed on rows and
    columns as a table.

    A friend that has a system based on XP Pro, when imports the same data on Notepad
    gets the data misaligned i.e. rows and colums are not preserved.

    The data are simply copied from a web page then pasted in Notepad.

    I have also invited my friend (that is very much far from me) to install Notepad++, but
    he says to get the same behaviour.

    Any idea?

    Thanks, Emiliano

    I'd try a couple of things:

    First check to see if both versions of Notepad are set to use the same font.

    Then try sending your friend a copy of notepad for him to try in his pc.
