Hi, has anyone experienced strange character encoding problems working in Atom?
99% of the time I am programming, and so am pretty much just using ASCII. However, everything is saved in UTF-8, as is usual nowadays and is Atom’s default. During the last couple of days I needed to update a bunch of strings/locales files (de, es, fr, it, ja, pt-br, zh-hans, and zh-hant) and now see several garbled characters have been introduced into lines which previously were good and which I had not edited. (I can tell this from the SVN history, for example in a de file I edited, I can see the line I changed, but also in a line I did not edit I see a ö converted to �.)
If I do a Find in Project for � (not scientific, I’m sure, but I’m not sure what else I can do) and restrict it just to the locales directory, I see a lot of results from files that previously were good. I can’t find any way to copy-and-past from the Find in Project results pane, so here is a screenshot:
Has anyone else seen similar problems? It seems to me this is pretty serious, but I cannot fully discount the problem being caused by something other than Atom either. (Perhaps the new strings I was copying-and-pasting in were in some kind of funky encoding and that was what caused the problem, for example.)
