The Status Bar
Screenshot of status bar in UltraEditThis area of the status bar will show a tooltip (explanation) for menu and toolbar items as you hover over them. This is also the area where status information is written during Find/Replace in Files, Sort, and Macro recording.
Screenshot of status bar in UltraEditUltraEdit shows you the active line and column number here, as well as the active clipboard. “C0” indicates that the Windows (system) clipboard is active, while C1-9 indicate that the corresponding user clipboard is active. In hex mode, this displays the active caret position in both hex and decimal values.
Note: If you don’t see the line number, go to Advanced -> Configuration -> Editor Display -> Miscellaneous and ensure that “Disable line numbers” is NOT checked.

There are only three different types of line terminators – DOS (standard on Windows systems; CR/LF), Unix (standard on files opened from FTP or from Unix-based servers and Macs; LF), or Mac (legacy; CR).

This will not actually affect the content of the active file but simply changes the encoding used to view the file in the editor.

If text is selected in the active file, then this area of the status bar will show the number of bytes (B) and lines in the selected text instead of the file size
Screenshot of status bar in UltraEditIf the active file is read-only, this will display as “R/O”, otherwise it will display “R/W” (“Read/Write”). You can click this button to toggle the active file’s read-only status.
Note: Toggling the read-only status won’t change the underlying “Read-only” file attribute unless “Change file read-only attribute when changing menu setting” is checked in Advanced -> Configuration -> File Handling -> Miscellaneous.
