I enabled both backups and auto-save to a folder dedicated to these automatic saves. While browsing this folder, I am seeing that some Unicode files I had entered characters lost these Unicode characters and were replaced with questions marks. The auto-saved files were not useful at all losing the data I had keyed in. This is with the latest version of 18.5.0.
Is there an options I may set to preserve Unicode during auto-save?
Thanks.January 23, 2019 at 4:22 pm #24209
Auto-saved documents are saved with the same encoding as the original document. By default, untitled document will be created as the system default encoding (Western European for European Windows, Chinese for Chinese Windows, etc.), and thus Unicode characters will be lost. To work around this issue, please go to configuration properties for Text, select the File page, click the New Files… button, and select UTF-8 form Encoding drop-down list box. This way, new untitled documents will start as UTF-8 encoding.
I might actually consider making UTF-8 as default encoding for future versions.
