    Hi TWS admin,

    I used special char when coding in apex, more precisely french char like (é) in comments in my code and in VF pages. But when i save my apex code or vf page, and load it again. My char has been replaced by unknown characters. Is there a setting that i need to configure to avoid this? Because, for now, my workaround is to copy my code on the web app, and save there, then come back to TWS and pull from server :(

      Hi Vanessen,

      Thank you for your bug report.

      In this case, when you use special chars, please use the Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) for your code.

      You can find this setting in the Main Menu -> File -> Advanced Save Options, when any file is opened in the TWS editor.

      Currently, this option is actual for every file separately, so please change the code format for every your class or VF page when this is necessary.

      I kindly ask to inform us, if this setting helps you to solve your issue.

      Thank you,

        Will try it the next time I encounter the problem. Because for now, il already save on the server and then pull the code in welkin.

        Thanks for the reply :)
