  • Feature request: option for file encoding column in panes

    Sometimes I get problems when files I am comparing differ only by their file encoding eg ANSI vs utf-8. When a two files are compared, the encoding is shown in the bar at the top, but when comparing folders this data would have to appear in a column alongside Name, Size, Modified, etc. Some mechanism of showing differences in file encoding (maybe just that cell going red) would also be useful.

    Thanks

    Hi Crispin,

    This has come up several times before in the forums. For example, here are a couple threads from as early as 23-Mar-2008:

      Thanks for the links.

      I do mostly web work and having ANSI files around is getting to be bad news. Once I've identified and change the encoding of ANSI files to utf-8, the problems go away.

        Thanks for the suggestion. As Michael has pointed out, it is something we've had requested in the past and is on our Customer Wishlist. I have updated our notes on the subject.
