RE: Re: Unable to set the proper line termination....

Hi and thank you!

Under the file properties, Subversion tab, Properties I only see the property I added (svn:eol-style) and in some cases svn:executable (removing it doesn't fix the problem), nothing else.

When I added the property the files were considered modified but opening them with a file editor that shows the line terminations (it's a lot faster than using the VB6 IDE) still still only shows a LF.

Thank you and have a nice day!
