    Text (txt) files won't save changes when editing and saving in galaxy s7, I have tried with different text editors like NOTEPAD,SIMPLE TEXT EDITOR with no results
    These are files I imported from a computer and want to edit and save changes I made.
    Although it works when creating new files and change any thing than save

    Thanks for your assistance,
    I've done it from the SD card also copied the sames files to the phone MYFILES directory with the same result, what ever editor app I use it allows me to make changes to the file/text after exit the file open it again no change are made, this happen also with the WORD editor as well, these files I created them on my old galaxy S5 phone and passed them to my new galaxy S7, if I can create new files than it saves and I can make changes afterwards, the problem is when editing old txt files change them on my new galaxy S6 that it don't accept/make changes it remains the same.
    Ounce again thanks for your support.

    Go to the App Manager, select the text editor app you're using, and tap Permissions. Does it have permission to manage storage and files?

    Hmm, strange. This may seem silly, but does it seem to matter if the file extension is lower case (.txt) or upper case (.TXT)? I've seen some odd issues with photo files (at least on a computer) if the .jpg extension is upper case vs lower case.

    This issue is only if I edit an existing files created on an other device, if I create a new txt files from scratch on the Galaxy s7 then everything works as usual, creating,opening and saving changes.

    Oh yes, I realize that -- but I'm just wondering if those files created on a different device (like on the computer) are saving the file as .TXT files (capitalized), rather than .txt files (not capitalized). If so, I was wondering if that's somehow causing an issue, as it can do so with .jpg vs .JPG files on a PC.
