import from a UTF8 .txt file

Post by taylor3456 » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:59 am

I have used CmapTools for some time. It is a wonderful tool!

But I can not import "Propositions as text" from a UTF8 file. Other languages like german or chinese will not be displayed correctly!

I have tried some methods e.g. changing the language in preferences or changing the font in "stzle" afterwards. But either works.

Please help me! Thank you!

Best Regards!

I have tried there possibilities: with "UTF8", "UNICODE" and "UNICODE Big Endian". But neither of them works!

Thank you for your tipps. I hope, that I can also work with other languages.

sorry for the wrong typing! that should be "or changing the font in "style" afterwards. But neither works." "But none of them works!"

about the environment and others:
1, I am using a german operating sytem.
2, cmap containing german and chinese can be exported without problem into UTF8 .txt file

the import failure what I have described at the beginning can be improved?

Possibly I had a similar problem with importing from a UTF8.txt file, using an IMac (OSX 10.5).
The standard textedit, doesn't use CRLF line endings.

Workaround: Use another texteditor (e.g. the free Textwrangler), that allows specifying CRLF line endings.

Hope that helps.
