Wrong encoding when you changed it manually



  • When you open text file which is encoded in OEM 866 and select manually from “Encoding” menu to switch to OEM 866, file contents is displayed in another/wrong encoding.
    ‡Ђ•Ђђ€ …Њ€‹Ћ‚ ‘Ћ”’…‚ /OEM 866/
    must be
    ЗАХАРИ ЕМИЛОВ СОФТЕВ /Windows-1251/
    but is displayed as
    噣晙悎 厡垕巶 憥敀厒

    Version 7.5.1 of NPP is working as expected. The bug is in version 7.5.2 and 7.5.3



  • This is a known bug in v7.5.2 and v7.5.3 so I’d suggest you stick with v7.5.1 for the time being.
