I have a feeling they are not raw text files as you say that the fonts are wrong. But a raw text files (*.txt) doesn't have the ability to have different fonts. What generated the files?hanna wrote:thanks for the reply! just to be clear:
- if i open the file on the Pi itself, it opens with Leafpad and is completely blank.
- if i open the file on the Pi via a Windows machine over the network, it opens with Notepad and is incomplete, missing significant portions of the text.
- if i copy the file from Pi back to a Windows machine, it opens with Notepad and is incomplete.
- i still have the original folder on a Windows, machine, with all files intact...but i'd like to them intact on the Pi in the kitchen - that's why i put it there in the first place!
Hmm. Still odd. Font type, sizes etc are not supported in a raw text file - all you get are characters, and paragraphs are only there because of carriage returns, not through any formatting instructions. If they were cut and pasted from websites, they are perhaps HTML formatted? But then I wouldn't expect things to disappear - just more stuff to appear!hanna wrote:sorry, should have been clearer - some of the font sizes are off, not the font itself. primary problem however is just an incomplete document with paragraphs, sentences etc missing.
as i notes below, the files were just recipes, blocks of text copied off of websites and pasted into Notepad and saved as .txt files.
, what did you actually do? Is you Pi set up as a Samba share on your network? What commands/method did you use to get the files on your Pi?i imported a folder full of text (*.txt) documents (recipes, actually) into my Pi
