I moved from Atom to Code 6-9 months ago. Didn't look back until yesterday.

Code does not support CR line endings. I received a text file that was
output from InDesign(latest version). I made a minor change in the text
file. I processed it with a program that had been around for years. I sent
the processed file to the customer and results were disastrous. Unknown to
me all the LFs in the file were changed without warning to line endings.
Apparently VC only has 2 line ending options LF and CRLF but not CR.
Apparently I'm not the first to get bitten by this. An enhancement request
to support CR line endings has been around for 5 years and not addressed.
Seem like a simple fix, but what do I know about VC's internals.


Hope this prevents one of you from getting bitten..
