The end result should be a @CRLF for most Windows based software. Open the file that your script is making using SciTE, then select View > End of Line. That will let you see what is at the end of each line. EDIT: that should let you see what those little boxes are that you now see within notepad - if they are CRs or LFs. Edited by herewasplato

That's an indication that you are getting Unicode back.

Notepad displays a rectangle in place of non-printable characters.

A CR without a LF is a non-printable character.

A LF without a CR is a non-printable character.

I do not know if that falls within the definition of Unicode.

FileOpen("test.txt", 2)
FileWrite("test.txt", _
        "carriage return" _
         & @CR & @CR & @CR & _
        "carriage return" & @CRLF)
FileWriteLine("test.txt", "FileWriteLine")
FileWriteLine("test.txt", "FileWriteLine")
FileWriteLine("test.txt", "FileWriteLine")
FileWrite("test.txt", _
        "line feed" _
         & @LF & @LF & @LF & _
        "line feed" & @CRLF)
FileClose("test.txt")
ShellExecute("test.txt")

Can you just send a keystroke "ENTER" using SEND? ftm:

Send

Sends simulated keystrokes to the active window.

Send ( "keys" [, flag] )

P.S. Notepad is so weird. Often times it puts extra carriage returns into data that I paste in. Sometimes it puts the squares. If I use PSPAD or SCITE, this never happens. Of course, Unix, Macs, and Windows PC's will never agree on anything, so we have to deal with the garbage cleanup... :) Edited by jefhal

Can you post a sample script that replicates the issue?

...I have tried @cr @LF @crlf...

Adding @CRLF should have added a line return as shown by notepad. There may still be unprintable characters at the end of a line - but you should have a "hard return" caused by the CRLF as far as notepad is concerned.

Also, what did SciTE show you when you looked at the file that your script makes? (See my earlier post - I hope that I clarified what I said about SciTE.)
