    you didn't do anything. it still has the ansi cursor positioning codes. https://i.imgur.com/psagTaV.png
    what editor are you using?
    dont save it in animation mode.

    I'm using Moebius. Never had a problem before. I really don't know what a cursor positioning code is. Never had to deal with that sort of thing before.

    it has a bunch of codes in it.
    esc[1;1H is one of them. it's not necessary.
    what it is doing is showing your ansi at that position.

    i downloaded moebius and made a simple ansi and it didnt add these codes.

    I opened the ansi in a text editor and do not see esc[1;1H anywhere in the ansi. What are you usung to view the ansi. I'm not seeing those codes.

    you can see from the screenshots that i have the raw file.
    that is what you display. unless synchronet now does something weird with the files.


    and it is loaded up with a text editor.

    and your ads are being positioned weird on bbses. ie it overwrites
    the name and subject instead of displaying like a normal file
    the positioning code makes it go to col 1 row 1

    http://bbses.info/tmp.ad.ans

    ^^ i edited the file with pablodraw. here it is without the cursor positioning codes.

    here is a link i found explaining them https://gist.github.com/fnky/458719343aabd01cfb17a3a4f7296797

    that looks 10x more shittier.

    just use the file i fixed and linked.

    LOL! I'll use your file. You said you edited it in Pablo Draw. What exactly did you do to the file? I tried the method Digital Man suggested because when I opened the ansi in a text editor I did't see any of those codes that were in the ansi you posted.

    i took out the codes by hand and then i opened it in pablodraw and saved it. then i removed that stupid sauce tag.

    show me a screenshot of your ansi in your text editor and i'll circle the codes.

    The reason I used wordpad was becuse I was on my Window 10 computer and it looked worse in Notepad. I can re-send it in Edit or Notepad++ if you like.

    See those "1B" characters? Those are control characters (hex 1B is ASCII ESC). You can't view those characters correctly in most text editors.

    animation mode.

    and there's one of them.
    but he's saying in his original file he has no cursor positioning codes.

    years ago i made a little cheat sheet program, but ironically it
    moves the cursor position and blocks some of the display

    If you really want to know the contents of a file, use a hexadecimal dump utility/viewer, e.g.
    E:\sbbs\src\sbbs3>hd e:\lunatics.ans
    e:\lunatics.ans:

    In vi use the setlist command to view those escape characters.
