Thanks for your response. There is not a change planned for UEx which will allow you to specify the encoding of an entire project, however I do see how this could be useful, so we will consider including this in a future release.
Thanks for your answer,
that will help first.
So I have to open all the files with the 'Open-file dialog', and project-files can not be opend with a double-click from the project-list...
Is there a change planned - so that I can define the encoding for the project ?

Thanks for your message. UEx doesn't automatically detect the file type. As such, you would need to manually set the file type in the File : Open dialog. If you set the file encoding in the Open dialog, then open the file, I believe you will see what you are expecting.
I'm using UEX, 184.108.40.206 on a SUSE 11.0 system.
I'd like to edit some files with saved encoding latin 1.
Kate, and other linux editors are telling me - the files are with latin 1 encoded !
These files are Perl scripts, etc. - simple textfiles.
Every time I open these files with UEX, they are shown with UTF-8 encoding.
So all special characters (äüö) - I'm from Germany, are not readable.
They are used in comments etc.
When I try to convert a file to latin 1, these special characters are totally wrong and unreadable.
How can I tell UEX to open a file with a defined encoding ?
