Hello, I recently changed the text default encoding to UTF-16 and since jedit locks at run start-up scripts.
The workaround was a new install and the dreaded re-configuration (plugin installs and making menus for them) and all is back to normal. I just know the default encoding for text can never be changed to UTF-16. The lock will always occur.
Listing as severe because the only fix is to not fix it really but replace the installation altogether. My plugin-fied jedit lost forever.
running jedit 4.3.2, XP HOME, mini v10 DELL NET Book.

  • Did you edit the startup script with that encoding ?

     
  • Changing default text encoding to UTF-16 is not enough to make jedit hang. Checked with 4.4.2 on XP. Submitter does not reply, so closing.
