Wrong encoding in SaveAs dialog in Chrome [solved]
« on: May 09, 2018, 11:49:57 PM »
(Windows 7 x64)
I have an issue with cyrillic filenames in Chrome. Codepage is broken in SaveAs dialog in Chrome when i want to download a file. And there's no such an issue in IE9.
See attached screenshot (it's the Batas template but it all the same with the default one).
Thanks in advance.

This happens because HFS doesn't have full unicode support (You can find on the forum some related questions). As far I know, there is nothing we can do to fix this, at least until someone here comes with an idea on how to enhance the unicode support of HFS.

• HFS is now also available in Spanish! (Click here)

Thanks for your reply. If HFS doesn't support unicode maybe it can fully support cp1251 encoding? it would be enough for my task.

The encoding is an issue inside hfs, not the webpage.

Adding a web page character set will still alow a browser to see the character set code:

https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_charset.asp

Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1">

thank you for your time and patience,

Oh! I understand now. I've set spanish interface in Chrome, so it fails to interpret russian filenames. If I change interface to russian everything is ok.
