How do I change the Default Character Encoding on a local Atom?
I tried to add
in vmoptions, but this does not alter the default encoding.
We have this same setting in place in the atom.vmoptions file.
To ask the obvious questions.
Did you make the change in the correct file? There is an atom.vmoptions & atomw.vmoptions file among others.
Did you restart the Atom after making the change?
What are you trying to change to? Have you tried the following details in this question? -Please Explain Character Encoding
Hi Brian.Think the question was clear enough How do I change the Default Character Encoding on a local Atom?
I did read the Please Explain Character Encoding article, it was from there I got the -Dfile.encoding input!
Hi David.Thanks for helping me out with obvious
I had made changes to "atomw.vmoptions" and "atomdesktop.vmoptions" but for some reason forgot to add the line in "atom.vmoptions". That did the trick.
