Is this possible?


New Member

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.
