german Umlauts in URL impossible to use

    excuse my little knowledge in English please.

    Using Npp with ANSI-Codec. In some notes I would love to use URLs for better acces to my *.txt or
    openoffice calc - files. Some file-names include german umlauts - there lies the rub.
    The underline-function ceases at the charakter in front of the german umlaut.
    So the URL-function is not a function.

    Wich codec I must take to replace the german umlauts?
    exemple: using for "ä" replace with "%C3%A4" / "ä" / "ä" / "ä" = no way.

    Vista home SP2; Npp 6.6.7

    Thx for brainwork

    Fixing this will require changes to the code, there is no setting which can change this. It currently only recognizes the letters from the English alphabet.

    Sorry for handling I have no clue "changes to the code" .
    Settings in userdefined language are not available and you said, they don't can change. OK

    Can I change the ENCODING - which of the offers ist the right choice?

    To use English Language in my system there is no chance (I don't want it).

    Must I in the Myth of Sisyphus rename all files? Please don't say "yes".

    Sorry, there is no setting (currently) which can change this.
