  Hello all,
     i already searched for this feature, in case someone else was 
already working on it or if it simply was a bad idea to implement.
For now, i haven't found anything nor something against it so i 
implemented this simple feature, that basically ensure no mixed line 
endings control characters (le-cc) will be saved in the document, patch 
is attached (i used the latest SVN head, 5089).
Let me explain the use case: i'm currently working on a project where 
some of the files contains mixed line endings control characters, ie., 
some lines end with just CR, other with just LF: there is an easy way to 
convert everyone of these control charaters to something else via 
"Document->Set line endings->Convert and set ..." but this isn't 
something i always manage to remember to do and, better, i would like 
the editor to take care of that for me.
So this patch add just that: in the "Preferences->Files->Saving files" 
dialog i added a  checkbox and, if checked, the editor will always 
convert any le-cc to the one currently actively on the document via 
I also would like to propose a change in the way le-cc are presented to 
the user, but i'll do a new post eventually.
