#1440 new defect

Padre Document change encoding (broken)

Reported by: bowtie Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: editor Version: 0.96
Keywords: encoding Cc: bowtie, daxim, dod

Description

retrospective ticket added for completeness

<dod>, I noticed that Padre Document info shows the encoding,
but that the change encoding (broken) only seams to change the documents encoding
type ( not quite sure the contents are converted correctly ) I think not at present
<bowtie> I was wondering whether we should be displaying
the document encoding in the status bar?
<dod> bowtie: regarding your question " I was wondering whether we should be
displaying the document encoding in the status bar? ".
I would not advise such a feature: finding the right encoding is often a guesswork.
For instance there are few differences between iso8859-1 and iso8859-15,
mostly char A4 is ¤ in the former and € in the latter
<bowtie> dod, thanks for the clarification
<daxim> padre does it wrong
 I would submit a bug report, but trac is gone
 so listen, and put it in the tracker yourself when it reappears
<bowtie> daxim, go ahead, I will add to my local trac
<daxim> in the open dialog, there is no facility for selecting the encoding,
because you use a shitty toolkit (Gtk) that doesn't even have that basic feature
 KDE text editors do it correctly: after the field for the file name,
you can select the encoding name in the open/save standard dialog
<bowtie> daxim, is this a gtk thing or a Scintilla issue
<daxim> so what? will you punt every bug resulting from the choice of toolkit?
<bowtie> daxim, i am interested in understanding the issue,
you obviously have a greater knowledge on this subject than I do,
more info please
<daxim> okay, I'll prepare a screenshot
<bowtie> cool
