Unicode should be default

Post by jkeating » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:06 pm

TextMaker fails to open Unicode plain text files properly. It fails to save plain text files as Unicode by default. Unicode is the standard for Linux systems, and is the standard period. You need to do this really, really basic thing right. Unicode must be the default. For everything. There should be an option to change this default if we need to. Your Android beta has the same problem.

Side note: Text entry of Japanese works fine for me with SCIM/Anthy.

Also, please drop your file format. I never, ever save anything in proprietary formats, because eventually you can't read them. I only save TextMaker documents in .rtf and .txt formats. Please switch to a common non-proprietary format. You support them already, so it can't be that hard.

Could you please attach a .txt file that TextMaker cannot open properly? Thank you!
