4.28 iprint.ini

With this new version the .ini file has changed substatially and is very
difficult to read in plain english with notepad, but fine in wordpad. Every
other version before 4.28 was fine in notepad. Not a big deal but just
curious why the change and a heads up if anyone else was wondering why it
was so hard to edit.

Re: 4.28 iprint.ini


the ini file may not have the line breaks (carriage return, line feed)
like previous versions. Notepad normally displays a reclangle. make a
backup and copy the contents of the inin from wordpad in to notepad
(with the proper format).

works for me.

just my 2 cents.

Usually you can open it with dos edit as well and then just save it.

Or use some smarter editors that recognize file format like notetab or
notepad++ to edit it.

MS notepad is quite stupid text editor and can mess up lines if the
format of the file is not windows. 4.28 ini is in unix-format, 4.26 ini
is in windows-format (basically just different way to make line-breaks).
