Force UTF8 Encoding

Postby osamu » Sun Jun 18, 2017 11:33 am

I filed a place holder bug report to Debian package to help lost soul like me: https://bugs.debian.org/864978

For a CJK user on Linux UTF-8 environment, "Force UTF8 Encoding" in Edit/Preferences/Debugging menu entry is almost must have! Thanks for offering it! But why this is not the default behavior. I know it is documented in User's manual as experimental feature. I don't understand the possible problem of enabling this feature. (Old non-UTF8 Windows?) Please elaborate on this concern in the user's guide if there is a known problem.

Also I see a spell error which needs to be corrected s/defalut/default/

See the copy of text I found in Debian package. (If you fixed in more recent version, excuse me)
“Force UTF8 Encoding” - Evernote doesn’t always seem to send the <xml>
header with notes created or edited in the web interface. This can cause
an issue with some special characters. As a workaround, this will add
the <xml> tags to notes that are missing it. This is experimental and
disabled by defalut, but if you are having issues where special
characters are being displayed improperly this may correct the issue.

Thanks.

It is experimental because I'm always a little cautious about enabling a feature by default until I'm sure of the overall impact. I was planning on making it the default after I was sure I wasn't creating more problems than I was solving. I was paranoid I may be fixing NixNote, but maybe then breaking Android or Windows or something else. It wouldn't be the first time I've done that. :)

Sorry for the slow response. Things have been chaotic & I haven't had much time to look at NixNote.
