FWIW: The strange characters always replaces a closing bracket } I just experienced this bug in a file which was just opened, and added about five lines of php code to. It was a file which contained html, css, js and php.
My take on this is that this either has something to do with the syntax autocomplete, or/and syntax reading and coloring/formatting. And, since it occurs so often, it may be caused by/or cause the memory access violation bug too? Just my 2c. You do a great job, Jan Fiala! I've been using this prog for more than a decade now. regards, Mog -- <https://forum.pspad.com/read.php?4,75192,75812> PSPad freeware editor https://www.pspad.com
