I cannot reproduce the bug, but I was looking at similar bugs of jEdit and it may be an installation problem.
Could you try to do the following action ?
Go to menu Utilities->Beanshell and choose evaluate beanshell expression
copy this expression into it

System.out.println("mode is "+jEdit.getMode("text"))

and check the activity log (Utilities->Troubleshooting->Activity Log)

If it is the same bug you will have

[notice] AWT-EventQueue-0: mode is null

(with the correct installation you must have [notice] AWT-EventQueue-0: mode is text)

It happens all the time with the same file. Now other files of that type (if there are others) will not open as well. Some are straight *.txt files others are not.

 

Attached is an example of the types that are not opening, just giving me a blank page and hanging JEdit.

And when a file doesn't open, is it happening all the time or sometimes it opens ?
could you provide an example file ? is there something in the activity log ?

Mattieu,

 

No they are all different types of files (all text however). So there does not appear to be a pattern to it.

I have just installed JEdit 4.2 (final) and on some files open without any issue. However about 1/3 of the files are opening to blank pages. If I use something like Word or notepad the file opens correctly. But each time I attempt to open them with JEdit I get a blank page. Then once I attempt to close the file I get a BeanShell error It starts java.lang.NullPointerException:Mode must be non-null). This tells me that JEdit thinks the file is empty. However it prevents me from even writing into the file.

Is this a know bug? Is there a workaround for this issue?

 

Thank you in advance,
