I´m facing some problems related to accented words that don´t appear in the interface. There are many English files that don´t have the matching Spanish file, like CrossCollectionSearch?.properties. What format must these files have? UTF-8 or Ansi?. Saving as utf-8 makes library to ignore the text and use the English one. Saving as ANSI makes extended chars appear as symbols. Finally, to get an accented word I have to do the following:

1- Write the word, i.e: Búsqueda

2- Convert the file to UTF-8

3- Reconvert to ANSI so "Búsqueda" is like "Búsqueda"

Strange, but it works!

  • status changed from new to closed

This must have been resolved as the spanish interface is complete, with accents appearing fine.
