First Steps

On this page, we’ll show you how to change your first encodings and line beaks of 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 to the TextEncoder. Alternatively, you can use the buttons to add files under the file list.

Step 2: Set desired Changes

In the second step, you configure what should be changed. 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 at "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, in the lower right corner of the save options, you can choose if you want to overwrite the original file or save your converted files as new files under a new name 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.
