Description c69 2011-10-26 17:35:46 UTC
When you install NetBeans, you cannot work with utf-8 files, unless you modify netbeans.conf manually. -J-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 is not hard to write, but - maybe its better to just set it by default ? (at least for Netbeans PHP installer)

Mariane, this issue is not PHP specific, it is more about IDE config file or about default file encoding in general (sorry, no idea where this issue belongs). Thanks.

Ok, reassign to editor ... they might know where this belong to. Editor guys, feel free to reassign.
Comment 3 Miloslav Metelka 2011-10-31 10:55:03 UTC
There should be a contrib/encoding module which should pop up a dialog asking what encoding should be used and remember that information in NB file system attributes. If we would make the UTF-8 the default then there would be no way to override it (currently there's the command line option). If we want to improve the situation we should IMHO make a configurable option in the options UI.
