First Steps with the TextEncoder

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to change your first encodings and line beaks of arbitrary text files using the TextEncoder. Just follow the steps below.

Step 1: Select Files

First, add the files you want to change to the file list in the program. It is sufficient to simply drag the files from any folder onto the TextEncoder.

Alternatively, you can also use the buttons for adding files (keyboard shortcut CTRL + O) or searching folders (keyboard shortcut CTRL + D). You can find both buttons under the file list.

Step 2: Set desired Changes

In the second step, you configure what should be changed on the added files. The options can be found on the right side of the program under "Changes".

If you want to change the line breaks of your files, check the box next to "Line Breaks". If you want to change the encoding, you can check the box next to "Encoding". Of course it is also possible to activate both changes at the same time. Under "Save as" you can set your desired format or line break type.

Step 3: Save

Finally, you can use the Storage Options in the lower right corner of the main window to choose if you want to overwrite the original file or save your converted files as new files under a new name and/or in a different folder.

Once you have set all the options, you can click on the "Convert" button to convert all the files in the list according to your settings.
