  1. I dont' think your file is ASCII, I think it's UTF-8. Those first characters might be the BOM (Byte Order Markers). Look at your file with a hex editor. I use UltraEdit but it's money, so try Notepad++. Don't forget Notepad was upgraded to support Unicode, and by default is saves to UTF-8 now, not ASCII. In Notepad go File > Save As > and look in the lower right and tell me which encoding you have selected. I'm guessing it's UTF-8 with BOM.

  2. Go methodically through the commands and use them one by one in very simple macros. Use the Help system. When you do something for learning purposes, make frequent use of Text Box Display so you can see the result. Sounds tedious and probably is, but I should have done it early on. I still occasionally find command options that I have never used. A couple simple examples: // Variable Set String %T1% " ABCD " Variable Set String %T2% " EFGH " Variable Modify String: Append %T2% to %T1% Text Box Display: T1 result is ***%T1%*** Variable Modify String: Trim %T1
