Due to a 16-bit limit in the scroll range of scroll bar messages in MS Windows, this feature is not supported in word wrap mode.
You are probably running either Outlook or Lotus Notes in corporate or workgroup mode. These block DDE messages. One solution is to run Outlook in Internet mode. Alternatively, make your associations without using DDE as follows:
1. In Explorer click on Tools and select Folder Options
2. Select the tab File types.
3. Select the file type from the list and click Edit.
4. Under “Actions” select the “open” option click Edit.
5. Clear the option “Use DDE”
6. In the box called “Application used to perform action” add “%1” (including the quotes) to the end of the line.
The Shift+Backspace problem occurs with certain combinations of keystroke compatibility and customizations, if they are carried over from TextPad 3.2.5. It can be fixed as follows:
1. From the Configure menu, choose Preferences.
2. Select “Keyboard”.
3. From the list of Categories, choose Edit.
4. From the list of Commands, choose EditBackspace.
5. Type Shift+Backspace in the shortcut box.
6. Click Apply.
7. Click OK.
TextPad 7 is available as a free upgrade to registered users of TextPad 5 or later. Simply download and install it in its default folder. You do not need to apply for a new license.
TextPad licenses purchased prior to 6 March 2006 are only valid for use with TextPad 4.x and will require upgrading. To inquire about upgrade cost please provide your license number in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you require a replacement license which predates 2006 then an upgrade/replacement fee will apply. The cost of the license will be 60% off the list price. Again, contact email@example.com, if this applies to you.
First, you must install operating system support for Japanese, using Regional Applets on Control Panel. (This is not supported on Windows 9x and ME.) Secondly, you must set the font script to Japanese, for all relevant document classes. A suitable font is MS Mincho.
This is due to the way Microsoft implemented the Save As dialog box: If you supply an extension it doesn’t recognize (including none), it either appends the default extension, if the filter is “*.*”, or the first extension in the list for the selected filter. This behavior is designed to enforce the strong association between extensions and applications in Windows, but it does get in the way at times. One of the most irritating aspects of this is that it can create files with names like FILE.XYZ.TXT, when you type FILE.XYZ.
To allow a file to be saved with an arbitrary extension, delete the default extension from the File page of the Preferences dialog box, and select “*.*” from the “Save as Type” list on the Save As dialog box. Alternatively, you can force it to accept exactly what you type by putting quotes around the name.
Some XML processors require that files start with a byte order mark (BOM). By default, TextPad does not write that, because many other applications that process Unicode don’t understand it.
To force the BOM to be written, check the option to “Write Unicode and UTF-8 BOM”, in your XML document class.
Please check with Sun’s installation Notes for the appropriate version of the JDK you have:
TextPad looks in the registry for the following keys, which are written by the JDK installation program:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\CurrentVersion
Say the value is 1.3, then TextPad will look for the following value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit\1.3\JavaHome
If it is “C:\Java”, then JAVA.EXE should be in C:\Java\bin
First make sure you installed the JDK using its setup program as it writes important information to the registry that TextPad needs to locate Javac.exe. If you copied the JDK from another machine it will not work correctly with TextPad. After you have run the installation program for the JDK, do the following:
1. Click on Configure.
2. Select Preferences.
3. Select Tools.
4. Delete the 3 JDK commands (if present).
5. Click Apply.
6. Click the Add button and select the JDK commands.
7. Click OK.
