File Options

Revalidate documents when reloaded - Check this box to automatically revalidate documents when they are reloaded. Only documents that were previously validated before they are reloaded are revalidated. This option is enabled by default.

Save documents (don't ask to save) before viewing them with an external viewer - Before viewing the document that you are working on with an external viewer, it must be saved to disk so that the external viewer can access it. If you try to view an unsaved document with an external viewer, then HTML Validator will ask you to save it first. You must save it if you want to view your document with an external viewer. By checking this option, HTML Validator will not ask you to save your document if it has changed, instead HTML Validator will automatically save your document and then show it to you in the external viewer. This option is not enabled by default.

Validate documents when opened - Check this box to automatically validate documents when they are first opened in the editor. HTML Validator will only try to validate the document types that it knows how to validate by using the document's file extension to determine what type of document it is. If this option is enabled then any documents loaded at start-up will be validated without sound (except for the current document which will have sound if sound is enabled). This option is not enabled by default.

Check ALL opened documents for changes on disk when receiving focus - Check this box to automatically check ALL opened documents for changes on disk when HTML Validator receives the focus (like when switching to HTML Validator from another application). Uncheck this option for these checks to be performed only for the selected (active) document. For faster performance, uncheck this option. This option is enabled by default. (New v13.9914)

Save File Format

Select the file format in which you want to save your documents. The default is DOS/Windows which will cause CRLF (a carriage return followed by a line feed) sequences to be used at the end of each line.

If the Document Being Edited Changes on Disk

Select the option that you want if CSE HTML Validator detects that the document that you are working on has changed on disk from when it was last loaded or saved. The default is to prompt to reload the document.
