If you want to edit the file in a standard windows text editor that doesn't natively support UNIX text formatted files then you'll need to use ASCII mode to convert the file from UNIX text mode to DOS text mode.

If you use a text editor such as notepad++ then you don't have to worry too much about using ASCII mode provided you edit the file in the correct text mode. In notepad++ you can convert between DOS and UNIX text mode. Some configuration files on UNIX servers must be saved UNIX text mode so you need to make sure the file is in the right format before saving it.

Changing the global default transfer mode does require a restart. I see that this is missing from the help file, I will add this information, thank you.
