If it helps, it may be a Mac OS issue. If I open a text file exported from a Toshiba copier, like the address book let's say, then open it with a text editor like SimpleText, and then save it, I cannot reimport the text file. The copier thinks that the file is unreadable. This happens with other Mac OS apps like Excel and Word. Someone at Apple thought it was a good idea to just help us out by replacing foreign line wraps to carriage returns. Oh, and not tell us they were doing it.

I wonder if this is related to the following bug where pasting into Notepad
strips all newlines. It would appear that LC 8 is having trouble putting
new lines on the clipboard properly.
