Unicode Support in OpenAmeos
Starting with 10.2, OpenAmeos supports Unicode. This has some ramifications which need to be considered.
Unicode can be used with Microsoft Jet, SQLite and Sybase as the repository server. For Sybase ASE 12.5 and 15 an additional character set needs to be added to the server. A brief description how to do this can be found at.
There are three new ToolInfo variables to define the encoding used for non UNICODE applications like Note Description editors and RTF Viewers.
When rtf_encoding or nonunicode_encoding are set, characters in RTF are converted with the specified code page. As a result, Unicode characters (like €) used in symbol names are printed correctly in RTF. If the TI variable is not set, Unicode characters (>127) are printed as Unicode escapes (\u1028? for example).
ToolInfo note_desc_editor_encoding is needed to define the encoding if non Unicode editors like notepad are used for note descriptions. As soon as the editor for note descriptions will store the edited text in Unicode, please make sure that neither note_desc_editor_encoding nor nonunicode_encoding are set.
The default value is
This is the German character set and does the proper encoding for notepad as the description editor and MS Word as the RTF viewer.
Below a list of possible values for these variables:
cp437 United States IBM cp819 Windows 3.1 (United States and Western Europe) cp850 IBM multilingual cp852 Eastern European cp860 Portuguese cp862 Hebrew cp863 French Canadian cp864 Arabic cp865 Norwegian cp866 Soviet Union cp932 Japanese cp1250 Windows 3.1 (Eastern European) cp1251 Windows 3.1 (Cyrillic) cp1252 German
