Hi all, :whistling:

The first time you save a file as unicode you will have to specify it when saving. When you open unicode files notepad will resave in unicode unless you change it to save it in ansi. I know of no way to make unicode the default. Perhaps in a notepad replacement like Editpad you can do this.
