UTF-8 encoded text file misread as Windows-1258
I’ve got a text-cue file for CD image that properly encoded as UTF-8 but no matter what I’ve done Notepad++ keeps reading it as Windows-1258.
The problematic text is “Las Mañanitas” as it’s written but Notepad++ shows it as “Las MaĂ±anitas”
Babelpad and even windows notepad read the file as UTF-8 format thus no garbled text at all.
Please review the file as I suspect it could be a bug.
See @Meta-Chuh 's post from a few hours ago in this thread (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/16848/notepad-v7-6-2-yellow-vest-gilet-jaune-edition/24). The encoding-auto-detect isn’t working right in NPP v7.6.2
Disabling autodetect surely solve the problem.
However I just found out UTF-8 BOM would do the trick even with autodectect on.
