moderated HjPad and save

I want .txt not .rtf as the default format when saving a document in HjPad. I don't find how to do this in any of the help topics.

When I started a new file with control+n I have the option of Word, RTf, Text, which is alt+t
When I hit control+s to save, I had the same three options, hitting Alt+t set it to plain text.
There is no default format that I find.
Again, I'm running Jaws 2021.

Or I suspect if Leonard adds a period followed by txt when naming the saved file, he'll get a plain text file.

Actually, it doesn’t give you a chance to name it first, and it defaults to RTF.

I never saved as RTF, but the first time I loaded the program in a long time was yesterday and it just popped up the dialog to choose Word 6.0, RTf, or TXT when I hit control+n to create a new document.

Even picking txt, which I did, when you go to save it, you get a warning that you will lose all formatting if you save in text format, so you have to pick text from that list.

 

Now, no matter if I do a save as or a straight save, it defaults to rtf.  You have to pick text format.

 

But, to me that is a small price to pay for a non-bloated text editor with the standard spell check feature.

I think I’ll stick with Windows Notepad for basic plain text editing. I think HjPad’s attempts to force rich text formatting is odd but perhaps it considers itself to be a WordPad as opposed to a Notepad substitute.
