Ability to search Unicode Files

Post by andrew.koutalakis@acadia-ins.com » Wed Mar 26, 2008 3:48 am

When using the "Find in Files" utility, several coworkers and I discovered that we can't search for text within files that are encoded as Unicode in PrimalScript 2007.

For an example, I set up a temporary folder on my C: drive with 4 identical text files, labeled Text_Doc1 through 4. All were saved with Unicode Encoding. Each file only contains one word: 'foo'. When using the "Find in Files" utility to search for 'foo', it did not find any of these files. I re-saved Text_Doc1 and Text_Doc3 as ANSI. Primal script found only those two files.

Is there a setting that I am missing, or would it be possible to have an enhancement to allow searching of Unicode files?

Hmm, I guess that would be a useful thing. I will check on it.
I am not sure at this point what the status is.
