Encoding issue


Atom can’t properly display special characters in my language in UTF-8. It replaces them with a diamond-shaped question mark. Changing to “Auto-detect” also doesn’t work, I have to manually select “Windows 1252”.

I really liked the software and I was hoping to replace Notepad++ with it. Too bad.


Though there’s no timeline for if and when the functionality might get added, there are open PRs for encoding auto-detection (referenced in https://github.com/atom/encoding-selector/issues/24#issuecomment-296381010) if you were interested in subscribing for updates.
