You can switch between word wrap, character wrap and no wrap.
– Shell integration
The Viewer can be set as the default application to open files with .nfo and .diz extensions. You get fancy file icons as a bonus.
– Smart line breaks handling
Unix style line breaks are supported (that is, you won’t notice any difference). Moreover, the Viewer correctly displays files with doubled/tripled/etc. (e.g. because of improper multiple Unix<->Windows conversions) line breaks.
– Unicode support
Unicode version of the program is installed automatically if the operation system supports it. Unicode version provides better support for multilingual user interface.
– Copy-on-Select
When this feature is on, text gets copied to clipboard automatically after you have finished selecting it (released shift key or left mouse button). After the selected text has been copied, the selected area will flash shortly and the text will get deselected (so for those who thought it’s a bug: it is not).
– Direct Scroll mode
In this mode there’s no caret so you can’t select text with keyboard, but you can navigate through file contents more easily (like in your browser). Turning it off makes it more like viewing a file in a text editor. and more…
…including Most Recently Viewed nfos list (accessible via menu or Alt+R), Drag&Drop support, … well, check for yourself.
