We need a simple UI for changing the encoding of an open file. While it is nice that we can change it while saving, it would be way more intuitive to have a little icon in the status bar where one can click to change the format. A sub-menu of the file menu should be there as well (similar to SciTE).
This is the initial user report:
Every time I outsource files I stumble upon the missing support for UTF8 files. There's no option to choose the file encoding in general and even particular for the outsourced files. When using utf8 as file encoding for cross platform compatibility the missing support causes unnecessary errors. The only solution to this is to save the file as a new file with the same file name while choosing the appropriate file encoding in the dialog.
I suggest that an general option should be added and an separate option for each Save-dialog, too.
