.reg files in internal viewer

Post by Hawkwind » 10 May 2007, 14:48

Viewing a "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00" .reg-file in the internal viewer looks very strange (see attachment). Everything is okay with "REGEDIT4" .reg-file which is the format altap salamander exports its own registry.

A bug?

No.

Unicode and Configuration - Internal Viewer - Line Ends - NULL checked.

.reg v. 5.0 is unicode formated (two bytes per char) and second byte is usually zero, which by-default breaks line in internal viewer.

We plan to support Unicode in Salamander 3.0, please look at roadmap.

Have to disagree on this one.

Making the entire application Unicode compatible is one thing.

But the viewer? Why not? Why the wait?

MS has used Unicode since what, NT?

Do we need to use Universal Viewer (ATViewer), Win32Pad, or similar, just so we can "properly" view a Unicode file?

I have also run into the unicode problem with the internal viewer. I'm running AS 2.5 and I still see the vertical view as shown in the above screenshot. I checked my configuration and I have NULL (and all the others) checked. What else do I need to do?

Thanks!
Derek

Uncheck it.
There will be 'ugly' characters (after each normal), but no vertical view

Ok - I get it. I'll just stick with Notepad2 for viewing these types of files.

Thanks,
Derek

JFYI, the File Comparator plugin does support "Unicode" (UTF-16 encoded) files. So if you really have to, compare the file you want to view (as text) with some other file. :idea:

The issue still occurs in 3.0 EAP. Are there any plans to fix this?

Unfortunately the Unicode support was postponed after 3.0 release, updated roadmap is available at http://www.altap.cz/salamander/roadmap/
