I love leafpad, but try as I might, I cannot tweak it. I do not have the skills yet and have had no luck contacting the developer who has probably gone on to higher things.
My problem right now is I need to cut and paste with ASCII only.
For example, if I cut and paste Orākei I can no longer find it as Orakei.
Any help would be appreciated. I'd also be happy to pay a budding young developer to solve the problem.
