Wrong Charset in Changebar Window - IDE 9

I think there is no or wrong Charset in the Changebar Window!

Thanks @Codebox, I’ve opened a bug for this here: https://github.com/Komodo/KomodoEdit/issues/69

Thanks @nathanr!

Folder “./trackchanges@activestate.com/trackchanges.jar” -> File “dialog.js
I think the problem is in this File.

@Codebox I’m having trouble reproducing the actual issue, could you provide a file with which I can repro?


Hi @nathanr, you can download the testfile here: http://www.codebox.at/komodo_ide_9/charset_test.zip

I’m not able to reproduce the issue with that file. What charset is Komodo using with that file? It gives me UTF-8.

The file is in UTF-8 and komodo run with this settings:

On kopy.io is is the right Charset. (http://kopy.io/8xaE3)

Only in the komodo overlay window it is the wrong charset.

I test it on WIN7 x64 and WIN8.1 x64

@careyh I cannot reproduce this, can you try on Windows?

Yep, easily reproduce on Windows.

Can you try this @careyh ?

Doesn’t seem to have any effect @nathanr.
