Just checking out atom and noticed the editor is forcing encoding of files upon opening and writing by using it’s default encoding format from settings.
I find this very poor as it should be able to recognize file format encoding upon opening a file.
Having a default encoding is great - but that should not force the way atom handles existing files.
Set default encoding to windows-1252 (ansi)
Create utf-8 file and input some nice characters
open file in atom
see confused sht
input some other nice characters
open it with utf-8 -> see really weird sht
