since some month I have to open files only in a special codepage.
its the old dos: OEM 852 (german with special "umlauts" and other signs).
How can I do this?
Who can help?
It's an easy question, or it is impossible?
Idea: it's possible to do with a macro? I have tgried it, but no positive result....
What I know, is: it's easy to open NEW files in OEM 852. see also: notepad++ -> settings -> options -> files -> see special coding list
thanks a lot.
After loading the file, you can go to menu Encoding -> Character sets -> Central European -> OEM 852. You can also map a shortcut if you need to do this often: go to menu Settings -> Shortcut Mapper..., in the "Main menu" tab scroll down to OEM 852 (should be at line 152) and modify the shortcut to whatever is not already used.
thanks for the hint. it's not the solution I would prefer. but it works
I've created a shortcutmapper for alt-x. it works fast, it displays the file in codepage852. fine. yes.
please let me say: I was searching for a solution without a macro or shortcutmapper. to tell NP++ all files automatically(!) opened in OEM852. ok. it seems so, that this will not work. Your solution is also a nice solution. thanks a lot!
