Welcome to the LaTeX community!
This sounds like an editor dependent message… and since there are dozens if not hundreds of different editors there probably are dozens if not hundreds different ways.
If you tell us which editor you’re using someone may be able to help.

We are two persons editing different .tex-files in the same project, syched through DropBox. But everytime one builds the project a dialog appears on the others screen, asking if one want to reload the file.
Is there any way to disable this “feature” as it is very annoying to have to dismiss the dialog.
I hope someone can help us

It’s hard for me to tell if Texniccenter does something funny, since it is not installed on my linux. Try creating a new file with notepad (or something similar), saving it as .tex (but without the txt) with encoding utf8. You can choose the encoding while saving as.
Concerning the BOM: I ran
- Code: • Open in writeLaTeX
$ file when_opened_.tex
wich gave me
- Code: • Open in writeLaTeX
when_opened_.tex: UTF-8 Unicode (with BOM) text, with CRLF line terminators

@Johannes_B How can you tell that the document contains a Byte order mark? It is not visible to me. Certainly, I’ve recreated the document from scratch several times in an effort to start fresh, but the problem persists. Surely, these don’t all have byte order marks. When you say “try opening a new file within Texniccenter and save it there, too”, you seem to suggest that I create a new template. I have done this many times. Recall that I do have fully functional templates. Can you please clarify your suggestion. Thank you for your time.

Your file »when_opened.tex« contains a Byte order mark, TexnixCenter seems to be very confused about this. Try opening a new file within Texniccenter and save it there, too.
Btw: Texnicenter 2 is now stable.

I’ve attached two files:
TeXpad.tex – the original file that was saved in C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter\Templates\Documents\My Templates
when_opened.tex – the corrupted version of TeXpad.tex that opens when called upon from within TeXnicCenter.

@Johannes_B I am using Windows 7 and TeXnicCenter 2.0 Beta 2. The templates are created by me as simple compilable .tex documents and kept in the location that I indicated.

you don’t give us much information. Which operating system and which version of TexnicCenter are you using?
Where are the template files coming from? The behaviour you described sounds a bit like an encoding problem. You can also upload whole files to the forum server.

I utilize personal templates which I keep in the folder C:\Program Files\TeXnicCenter\Templates\Documents\My Templates. Occasionally, something odd happens – a newly created template won’t reproduce properly when opened from within TeXnicCenter – the content appears to be written in Chinese. This seems to happen when the preamble of the template is minimal in content. This notion is reinforced by the experiment to pare down the content of a functional template. Once reduced, it behaves in the same anomalous manner. Does anyone know something about this?

I do not recommend to use TXC 1.0 anymore. It is more than 10 years old.
The maintainer of Texniccenter is sometimes reading here. If you are in a hurry, maybe the TEXnicCenter Support can help.
