Is there a way to disable hex mode? So that especially .txt files are always opened in ASCII (normal) view.

I already tried: {Menu Advanced, Configuration, File Handling, Unicode/UTF-8 Detection, Disable automatic detection of hex file format on reload} = yes.

According to the UltraEdit forums, it's not possible. The suggested solution to use a macro did not work for me.
