 2        endings in text files. The MacOS uses carriage-returns
 3        (<code class="literal">\r</code>). Windows uses a carriage-return followed by a
 4        newline (<code class="literal">\r\n</code>). jEdit can read and write files in all
 5        three formats.</p><p>The line separator used by the in-memory representation of file
 6        contents is always the newline character. When a file is being loaded,
 7        the line separator used in the file on disk is stored in a per-buffer
 8        property, and all line-endings are converted to newline characters for
 9        the in-memory representation. When the buffer is consequently saved, the
10        value of the property replaces newline characters when the buffer is
11        saved to disk.</p><p>There are several ways to change a buffer's line separator:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul type="disc"><li><p>In the <span class="guimenu"><strong>Utilities</strong></span>&gt;<span class="guimenuitem"><strong>Buffer
12                Options</strong></span> dialog box. See <a class="xref" href="buffer-opts.html" title="The Buffer Options Dialog Box">the section called &#8220;The Buffer Options Dialog Box&#8221;</a>.</p></li><li><p>By clicking the line separator indicator in the status
13                bar. See <a class="xref" href="status-bar.html" title="The Status Bar">the section called &#8220;The Status Bar&#8221;</a>.</p></li><li><p>From the keyboard, if a keyboard shortcut has been
14                assigned to the <span class="guimenuitem"><strong>Toggle Line Separator</strong></span>
15                command in the <span class="guibutton"><strong>Shortcuts</strong></span> pane of the

18                not have a keyboard shortcut.</p></li></ul></div><p>By default, new files are saved with your operating system's
19        native line separator. This can be changed in the
