I'm a new french user of plone.
I have modified portal proprieties to iso-8859-1 and all is
ok for search but preview is always in us without
accents.

Thanks for you help.
Pierre.

    Preview uses an external component (pdf2text) to generate an
    HTML version of the PDF document. It's this component you
    have to blame if accents are not correctly displayed :-)
    We tried to make them work for _most_ cases but it is
    possible that, sometimes, they don't. The solution would be
    to be able to guess the encoding of the resulting HTML and
    convert it to portal's encoding but this is a complete new
    feature for ZAA.

    Another solution would be to force the OS's local to be the
    same as your Plone site's local (namely, ISO8859-1). Please
    read your OS documentation to learn how to do so. We may
    improve ZAA anyway so that it would convert to the right
    codepage.

    Please can you tell us which OS are you using, which
    distribution if it's Linux, and what are your OS and Zope
    locales ?

    My OS is windows XP.
    I don't undertand why searching for (Procdure) is ok but
    display is bad (Procre).
    I believed that is the same product (pdftotext) is indexing the
    pdf. No ?
    Thanks again and sorry for my bad english.

    That's not the case anymore for latest CVS versions of ZAA
    or AttachmentField.
