HxD: Support for multibyte character sets

Post by fromnuaa »

Hi, ANSI charset can't use windows default codepage in Hxd beta

My windows xp is english version (language for non-unicode program is set as "China(PRC)", but in HxD 1.7.10 beta, ansi charset is still 1252 rather than 936 (simplified chinese).

Please fix above problem, thanks.

Multibyte charsets are not supported. I.e. if you choose a multibyte-charset like 936 (simplified chinese) HxD will go back to 1252 charset.

This is intentional, because multibyte chars cause some drawing issues when they are split (line wrap) and characters usually are wider than latin characters. That will be implemented together with support for Unicode in a future version.

Edit: Moved to a feature request and adapted topic
