Obvious question, but can you open the same text file in a different editor and have it preview correctly?


#3

Try

  1. copying the file with a new extension so as not to lose the contents
  2. opening the renamed file
  3. check the file length of both files
  4. selecting all content
  5. check opening another file with the same extension
  6. change default colours eg yellow on red
  7. notice if cursor keys or mouse can scroll the file
  8. delete app and reinstall

Edit:
Post the results.

Looks like the file type is set as BOM (Byte Order Mark) and not UTF-8

Have a read through ths page from NotePad:
