Component: Multilingual Input Method Editor Version: 0.50
Keywords: usability, dialog Cc:

Description

Although it looks editable, I cannot overwrite the default to pick an encoding that is not in the list. The list does not contain widely used encodings such as Latin-9, Windows-1251, Windows-1252, ISO 646, GB18030; indeed it should support everything that iconv or Encode plus Encode::HanExtra? support. The list is not categorically sorted like in web browsers.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

As of r5753 all the available encodings are listed but someone now will have to make sure
they actually work.

Not satisfactory.

  1. Although the widget looks editable, the textfield can't be written into.
  2. GB18030 is not listed although Encode::HanExtra? is installed.
  3. The length of the list is too long and needs to be sorted for usability into categories like in a web browser.
  4. Converting a document to »ascii« that contains the character 有 suprisingly succeeds with the dialog message »Document encoded to (utf-8)« and indeed, the file is in UTF-8 after saving. That's not what I asked for.
  5. Converting a document to »iso-8859-15« that contains the character 有 suprisingly succeeds with the dialog message »Document encoded to (iso-8859-15)«. After saving the file contains a Perl escape sequence \x{6709} .

Also, as of version 0.69, the dialog looks quite ugly. "OK" and "Cancel" are too far to the left.
