just had opportunity to edit panel.cfg
file to add gauge to my B777.when opening
file I was asked what application to use
and I used Word - got Office 2007. All
worked fine, I saved the file in Word and
gauge is showing OK. After this all .cfg
files in my FS folder show with Word
icon. I guess my question is what is a
normal process to edit .cfg files in which
But many people use notepad, But the gauges work OK so i guess its fine.
PS: when u edit a cfg file, i don't save as, simply save
I will probably be using notepad also
The reason why Notepad is used is because Notepad is an integral part of the Windows Operating System. Anyone who has Windows, has Notepad (and Wordpad). Only owners of MS Office have Word.

I beg to differ Mr. Tailhook
I use (and strongly recommend - esp. for novice users) notepad because it does not have any dangerous features that can mess up plain text, like more advanced word processing tools have, and you will save (any sort of) .cfg, .ini files etc. the way they were intended to be saved, as text only.
Word processing applications may add document formatting tags etc. to the file which, in our case, is a no-go
Well, the only exception being the encoding, ofcourse
PS. Oh ye, Hi everyone btw, long time no see, etc.
Hope you're all doing well.
Hey Mr. Ardjan Sir, it is good to see you 😀
Now what are you disagreeing or differing with
It seems something has got lost in translation. If you read my post again you'll find that we're actually agreeing... ...crazy world.
Look after yourself 🍻
You too TH
You may be right about the translation.... I thought I read you saying that the reason why people use notepad, is because it's by default available in Windows, and I tried to point out that my reason for using it, is because of how it works (or rather, how it doesn't), not merely for the fact that it's readily available.
Anywho, it's hardly worth discussing... The thread also presented the opportunity to jump in and give my regards to the community, after my last period of absence.
Not that I expect to visit frequently, as other matters, both real and virtual, take up most of my time these days, but I'm sure no-one minds an occasional "hello"
