    I am having big problems trying to get the page character encoding to stay fixed and repeatable.

    Problem 1: I am having problems even trying to see what font settings I am currently using!! If I click 'Edit > Preferences > Text font select' and choose Consolas Regular 11 with Script = Central European, then click OK, Save, then click 'Edit > Preferences > Text font select', the Script has reset to Western. Is the Script type even being saved? I can't tell.

    Problem 2: If I paste the following line to a php page, it looks correct.

    $a = array('À', 'Á', 'Â', 'Ã', 'Ä', 'Å', 'Æ', 'Ç', 'È', 'É', 'Ê', 'Ë', 'Ì', 'Í', 'Î', 'Ï', 'Ð', 'Ñ', 'Ò', 'Ó', 'Ô', 'Õ', 'Ö', 'Ø', 'Ù', 'Ú', 'Û', 'Ü', 'Ý', 'ß', 'à', 'á', 'â', 'ã', 'ä', 'å', 'æ', 'ç', 'è', 'é', 'ê', 'ë', 'ì', 'í', 'î', 'ï', 'ñ', 'ò', 'ó', 'ô', 'õ', 'ö', 'ø', 'ù', 'ú', 'û', 'ü', 'ý', 'ÿ', 'Ā', 'ā', 'Ă', 'ă', 'Ą', 'ą', 'Ć', 'ć', 'Ĉ', 'ĉ', 'Ċ', 'ċ', 'Č', 'č', 'Ď', 'ď', 'Đ', 'đ', 'Ē', 'ē', 'Ĕ', 'ĕ', 'Ė', 'ė', 'Ę', 'ę', 'Ě', 'ě', 'Ĝ', 'ĝ', 'Ğ', 'ğ', 'Ġ', 'ġ', 'Ģ', 'ģ', 'Ĥ', 'ĥ', 'Ħ', 'ħ', 'Ĩ', 'ĩ', 'Ī', 'ī', 'Ĭ', 'ĭ', 'Į', 'į', 'İ', 'ı', 'IJ', 'ij', 'Ĵ', 'ĵ', 'Ķ', 'ķ', 'Ĺ', 'ĺ', 'Ļ', 'ļ', 'Ľ', 'ľ', 'Ŀ', 'ŀ', 'Ł', 'ł', 'Ń', 'ń', 'Ņ', 'ņ', 'Ň', 'ň', 'ʼn', 'Ō', 'ō', 'Ŏ', 'ŏ', 'Ő', 'ő', 'Œ', 'œ', 'Ŕ', 'ŕ', 'Ŗ', 'ŗ', 'Ř', 'ř', 'Ś', 'ś', 'Ŝ', 'ŝ', 'Ş', 'ş', 'Š', 'š', 'Ţ', 'ţ', 'Ť', 'ť', 'Ŧ', 'ŧ', 'Ũ', 'ũ', 'Ū', 'ū', 'Ŭ', 'ŭ', 'Ů', 'ů', 'Ű', 'ű', 'Ų', 'ų', 'Ŵ', 'ŵ', 'Ŷ', 'ŷ', 'Ÿ', 'Ź', 'ź', 'Ż', 'ż', 'Ž', 'ž', 'ſ', 'ƒ', 'Ơ', 'ơ', 'Ư', 'ư', 'Ǎ', 'ǎ', 'Ǐ', 'ǐ', 'Ǒ', 'ǒ', 'Ǔ', 'ǔ', 'Ǖ', 'ǖ', 'Ǘ', 'ǘ', 'Ǚ', 'ǚ', 'Ǜ', 'ǜ', 'Ǻ', 'ǻ', 'Ǽ', 'ǽ', 'Ǿ', 'ǿ');

    If I then save the file, then open it again, it now reads:

    $a = array('A', 'Á', 'Â', 'A', 'Ä', 'A', 'A', 'Ç', 'E', 'É', 'E', 'Ë', 'I', 'Í', 'Î', 'I', 'D', 'N', 'O', 'Ó', 'Ô', 'O', 'Ö', 'O', 'U', 'Ú', 'U', 'Ü', 'Ý', 'ß', 'a', 'á', 'â', 'a', 'ä', 'a', 'a', 'ç', 'e', 'é', 'e', 'ë', 'i', 'í', 'î', 'i', 'n', 'o', 'ó', 'ô', 'o', 'ö', 'o', 'u', 'ú', 'u', 'ü', 'ý', 'y', 'A', 'a', 'Ă', 'ă', 'Ą', 'ą', 'Ć', 'ć', 'C', 'c', 'C', 'c', 'Č', 'č', 'Ď', 'ď', 'Đ', 'đ', 'E', 'e', 'E', 'e', 'E', 'e', 'Ę', 'ę', 'Ě', 'ě', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'H', 'h', 'H', 'h', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', '?', '?', 'J', 'j', 'K', 'k', 'Ĺ', 'ĺ', 'L', 'l', 'Ľ', 'ľ', '?', '?', 'Ł', 'ł', 'Ń', 'ń', 'N', 'n', 'Ň', 'ň', '?', 'O', 'o', 'O', 'o', 'Ő', 'ő', 'O', 'o', 'Ŕ', 'ŕ', 'R', 'r', 'Ř', 'ř', 'Ś', 'ś', 'S', 's', 'Ş', 'ş', 'Š', 'š', 'Ţ', 'ţ', 'Ť', 'ť', 'T', 't', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'Ů', 'ů', 'Ű', 'ű', 'U', 'u', 'W', 'w', 'Y', 'y', 'Y', 'Ź', 'ź', 'Ż', 'ż', 'Ž', 'ž', '?', 'f', 'O', 'o', 'U', 'u', 'A', 'a', 'I', 'i', 'O', 'o', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', '?', '?', '?', '?', '?', '?');

    Notice how some of the characters have been changed to question marks.

    I already have my file encoding set by clicking 'Edit > Preferences > Files' and setting the Encoding to 'ISO-8859-2 (Central European ISO)'.

    Please tell me if it is possible to fix these problems.

      Hi Tim,

      I'll be glad to help you with this but I may need some help
      understanding the character set.

      Are you sure characters that are changed to question marks, like Ǽ, are
      in ISO-8859-2?

      Also before diving in further, is UTF-8 out of the question for you? If
      not, making UTF-8 the default (and re-saving pages in it) should take
      care of all this.

        I really don't know what is being saved as what. I originally thought OK, so I click on 'Edit > Preferences > Files > Encoding', and set it to UTF-8 (Unicode), then Save. I paste the above string into a PHP page, save it, close it, then open it again. The result is even worse than before:

        $a = array('A', '�', '�', 'A', '�', 'A', 'A', '�', 'E', '�', 'E', '�', 'I', '�', '�', 'I', 'D', 'N', 'O', '�', '�', 'O', '�', 'O', 'U', '�', 'U', '�', '�', '�', 'a', '�', '�', 'a', '�', 'a', 'a', '�', 'e', '�', 'e', '�', 'i', '�', '�', 'i', 'n', 'o', '�', '�', 'o', '�', 'o', 'u', '�', 'u', '�', '�', 'y', 'A', 'a', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'C', 'c', 'C', 'c', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'E', 'e', 'E', 'e', 'E', 'e', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'G', 'g', 'H', 'h', 'H', 'h', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', 'I', 'i', '?', '?', 'J', 'j', 'K', 'k', '�', '�', 'L', 'l', '�', '�', '?', '?', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'N', 'n', '�', '�', '?', 'O', 'o', 'O', 'o', '�', '�', 'O', 'o', '�', '�', 'R', 'r', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'S', 's', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'T', 't', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', '�', '�', '�', '�', 'U', 'u', 'W', 'w', 'Y', 'y', 'Y', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '�', '?', 'f', 'O', 'o', 'U', 'u', 'A', 'a', 'I', 'i', 'O', 'o', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', 'U', 'u', '?', '?', '?', '?', '?', '?');

        I then close the page, and open it a second time without changing anything else, and this time it opens correctly:

        $a = array('À', 'Á', 'Â', 'Ã', 'Ä', 'Å', 'Æ', 'Ç', 'È', 'É', 'Ê', 'Ë', 'Ì', 'Í', 'Î', 'Ï', 'Ð', 'Ñ', 'Ò', 'Ó', 'Ô', 'Õ', 'Ö', 'Ø', 'Ù', 'Ú', 'Û', 'Ü', 'Ý', 'ß', 'à', 'á', 'â', 'ã', 'ä', 'å', 'æ', 'ç', 'è', 'é', 'ê', 'ë', 'ì', 'í', 'î', 'ï', 'ñ', 'ò', 'ó', 'ô', 'õ', 'ö', 'ø', 'ù', 'ú', 'û', 'ü', 'ý', 'ÿ', 'Ā', 'ā', 'Ă', 'ă', 'Ą', 'ą', 'Ć', 'ć', 'Ĉ', 'ĉ', 'Ċ', 'ċ', 'Č', 'č', 'Ď', 'ď', 'Đ', 'đ', 'Ē', 'ē', 'Ĕ', 'ĕ', 'Ė', 'ė', 'Ę', 'ę', 'Ě', 'ě', 'Ĝ', 'ĝ', 'Ğ', 'ğ', 'Ġ', 'ġ', 'Ģ', 'ģ', 'Ĥ', 'ĥ', 'Ħ', 'ħ', 'Ĩ', 'ĩ', 'Ī', 'ī', 'Ĭ', 'ĭ', 'Į', 'į', 'İ', 'ı', 'IJ', 'ij', 'Ĵ', 'ĵ', 'Ķ', 'ķ', 'Ĺ', 'ĺ', 'Ļ', 'ļ', 'Ľ', 'ľ', 'Ŀ', 'ŀ', 'Ł', 'ł', 'Ń', 'ń', 'Ņ', 'ņ', 'Ň', 'ň', 'ʼn', 'Ō', 'ō', 'Ŏ', 'ŏ', 'Ő', 'ő', 'Œ', 'œ', 'Ŕ', 'ŕ', 'Ŗ', 'ŗ', 'Ř', 'ř', 'Ś', 'ś', 'Ŝ', 'ŝ', 'Ş', 'ş', 'Š', 'š', 'Ţ', 'ţ', 'Ť', 'ť', 'Ŧ', 'ŧ', 'Ũ', 'ũ', 'Ū', 'ū', 'Ŭ', 'ŭ', 'Ů', 'ů', 'Ű', 'ű', 'Ų', 'ų', 'Ŵ', 'ŵ', 'Ŷ', 'ŷ', 'Ÿ', 'Ź', 'ź', 'Ż', 'ż', 'Ž', 'ž', 'ſ', 'ƒ', 'Ơ', 'ơ', 'Ư', 'ư', 'Ǎ', 'ǎ', 'Ǐ', 'ǐ', 'Ǒ', 'ǒ', 'Ǔ', 'ǔ', 'Ǖ', 'ǖ', 'Ǘ', 'ǘ', 'Ǚ', 'ǚ', 'Ǜ', 'ǜ', 'Ǻ', 'ǻ', 'Ǽ', 'ǽ', 'Ǿ', 'ǿ');

        I wish I knew why it changed for no apparent reason.

        OK, so if that's working at the moment, then how about the Font settings, and how to know what the current encoding settings are?

          No problem! I'm glad it helped.

          The default setting in preferences only applies to files opened
          afterwards so that's why it worked for you the second time. I'll update
          the preferences label to say this.

          File encoding is shown on the save dialog but there's also an option to
          show it on the status bar under "Edit > Preferences > Files > Encoding >
          Show file encoding on the Status Bar"

          I usually change the font using UI Theme icon, which is currently the
          4th icon after the "Help" menu. You'll get a real-time preview if you
          pause over a font name for a bit.

            Great - thanks for your answers. That just leaves the current script type for the current font - where can I see what that is?

              So there's no separate option for this and in general it shouldn't be
              necessary. If you've already selected an Unicode font that covers your
              target character set and still have any issues, please submit a report
              with those details through "Help > Feedback" and I'll take a look.

      What is Character Encoding ?

      A character encoding tells the computer how to interpret raw zeroes and ones into real characters. It usually does this by pairing numbers with characters. Words and sentences in text are created from characters and these characters are grouped into a character set. There are many different types of character encodings floating around at present, but the ones we deal most frequently with are ASCII, 8-bit encodings, and Unicode-based encodings.
