Default Welcome message

Hey Bigstar,

Recently i wanted to make my ftp look better, and i started customizing the login message. It seems however that FlashFXP
interpretate the message different then Notepad does. Now all the characters are not lined up etc. So my question is do you know a editor which is compatible with FlashFXP or what characterset is compatible? The major problem seems that the size of the space and tab are much smaller in FlashFXP than in other editors. Thank you very much for any idea's on this one.

Kind regards,

Codex

You need to use the same font for designing and viewing, Since FlashFXP allows the user to choose the font they might not be using the same one you designed your welcome message for.

Hey, thanx for the fast reply Bigstar

Now the question is....is the font used by FlashFXP a standard windows font, and if so, which one?

Thanx again,

Codex

Yes it is, I don't know which font is default though. As I'm not using the default and I don't have the source code handy.

i think it's better work with proportional fonts like "lucida console", "fixedsys", "terminal".
this way even *nix or apple users will see exactly what you want them to see.
