DAMN NFO Viewer is an utility designed for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (e.g. nfo files), and it proved itself to be handy. So, if you’re fed up with starting some DOS-like file manager each time you need to view nfo file, or ain’t too happy with the viewer you use, or (worst case) use Notepad – give this little tool a try.
Available in multiple languages
Chinese Simplified, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,
Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish. You can
choose the languages during installation and switch between them later via Settings dialog.
Hyperlinks / Email addresses autodetection
- The viewer automatically detects hyperlinks / email addresses and shows them as clickable shortcuts.
You can set text/background colors, colors for hyperlinks and hovered
hyperlinks, whether or not you want hyperlinks to be underlined, and
choose between 3 built-in fonts, available in different sizes.
- You can switch between word wrap, character wrap and no wrap.
The Viewer can be set as the default application to open files with
.nfo and .diz extensions. You get fancy file icons as a bonus.
Smart line breaks handling
Unix style line breaks are supported (that is, you won’t notice any
difference). Moreover, the Viewer correctly displays files with
doubled/tripled/etc. (e.g. because of improper multiple UnixWindows conversions) line breaks.
Unicode version of the program is installed automatically if the
operation system supports it. Unicode version provides better support
for multilingual user interface.
When this feature is on, text gets copied to clipboard automatically
after you have finished selecting it (released shift key or left mouse
button). After the selected text has been copied, the selected area
will flash shortly and the text will get deselected (so for those who
thought it’s a bug: it is not).
Direct Scroll mode
In this mode there’s no caret so you can’t select text with keyboard,
but you can navigate through file contents more easily (like in your
browser). Turning it off makes it more like viewing a file in a text
editor. and more. Including Most Recently Viewed nfos list (accessible via menu or
Alt+R), Drag&Drop support.
