Ticket #1440 (new defect)
Padre Document change encoding (broken)
|Reported by:||bowtie||Owned by:|
|Keywords:||encoding||Cc:||bowtie, daxim, dod|
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
