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,
