I'm working with SAS programs using SAS Studio, my colleague preffers Enterprise Guide as te editor. Those two use different line ending styles, so whenever we modify a single program it makes it really hard to track changes we've made, since source control highlights the whole file due to the change in line endings. Can I change the way SAS Studio handles new lines? (Unix->Windows).

When you save SAS codes from EG to the UNIX server (using Files in the Server List), the files are written with UNIX-style LF as line separators. So you should set up a shared location on the server, accessible by both of you, as a program repository.
That also adds the advantage that your work will be protected by the server's backup system (desktops often have no backup implemented).

... however it's a Windows based server.
Since even my old friend google couldn't come up with an answer, I suggest opening a track with SAS technical support. Maybe they can find an option that makes Studio write DOS-style files.
