Description Leon Ho 2005-05-05 01:56:13 EDT
Description of problem:
AFAIR, there are some sort of encoding selection in file dialog in older version
of openoffice.org to enable user to select what encoding is the documentation.
However I cannot see with current OpenOffice with new GTK2 file dialog.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.9.96-2

How reproducible:
everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. OOwriter
2. File -> Open
3. Cannot choose file encoding
4. Choose a document in native encoding, such as eucJP
  
Actual results:
file content is scrambled

Expected results:
file content should be read correctly

Additional info:
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-05-05 04:23:26 EDT
Should still be there as "Text Encoded" which opens the .txt file and pops up a
dialog to request the format. Try in a recent OOo e.g. 1.9.100-1
Comment 2 Leon Ho 2005-05-08 23:18:05 EDT
Just tried with 1.9.100-1 but cannot see that dialog. Will attach eucJP and
ShiftJIS encoded for you to test.

Also does opening .sxw or .doc have similar functions?

Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2005-05-30 06:16:53 EDT
The three pictures show how to specifically set the text encoding of a txt file.
Select filter of "Text Encoded", open the file, the dialog appears. Override the
encoding and font etc and I get the two documents to open in what appears the
right way.

.sxw/.docs have no such "override" stuff as it doesn't make sense for them.
.sxws are in utf-8 and .docs are generally in ucs-2, and when not specify
internally the encoding they were written in.
