Importing and exporting text with Unicode options
You can specify an encoding type when importing text and exporting text. The encoding type specifies the byte sequence used to represent each glyph in text. When working with international text or HTML text, you can choose the appropriate encoding to convert all the characters in the file to Unicode. The options work as follows:
- The Import dialog box includes an Encoding drop-down menu when a plain text or “XPress Tags” text file is selected. The software attempts to determine the encoding of selected text files and apply an appropriate encoding type. You can, however, choose a different option for text.
- The Save Text dialog box provides an Encoding drop-down menu when you’re exporting text in plain text or “XPress Tags” format.
- The Convert Quotes option continues to convert straight quotes to typesetter’s quotation marks and double hyphens to em dashes.
