The Advanced branch under Configuration - Editor has the following options:
Allow low ASCII values to be entered (usually control codes)
This setting allows the input of "low values" to be entered such as control codes while editing. Normally these would be ignored.
Allow editing of text files with hex 00's without converting them to spaces
When a file is loaded the editor checks the first 7K of the file and if it contains more than two NULLS (HEX 00) the file is considered a binary/HEX file. NULLS are not valid in an ASCII file and will be converted to spaces if you edit the file in text mode if this option is not selected (default). If you view a HEX file in text mode but make no changes the editor should not convert the NULLS to spaces, but if you do make changes in TEXT mode to a HEX file the change will occur.
Selecting this option overrides this conversion of NULLS (HEX 00) to spaces but we still recommend NOT editing binary files in TEXT mode. NULLS are normally considered string terminators and not generally valid in ASCII files. Using this setting may cause some functions not to work past the NULL although this should not effect general editing.
Load/Restore printer settings
The editor tries to communicate with the printer driver when it loads and shuts down (to preserve settings). If a network printer is specified as the default printer and not available this may cause a delay on startup while the editor tries to find the printer on the network. If this option is not selected then the editor does not communicate with the printer.
ESC key hides output window when visible
If this option is selected the output window may be dismissed by pressing the Escape key if the output window has focus.
If this option is selected undo will be executed on a word-by-word rather than character-by-character basis. If this setting is toggled during the editing of a document (and the undo buffer is partially created with both settings) the undo functionality will reflect the settings in place at the time the document was created. This could cause part of the text in a file to be undone as grouped characters and part to be undone character-by-character.
Auto-Save modified documents when application loses focus
If this option is selected all modified documents will be saved when focus shifts to another application.
