Re: descript.ion display unicode incorrectly

Hello Pierre,

To use BabelMap is only one possibility to write an unicode character. I use it when I am interested in a specific character.
I also use Windows IME to write e.g. chinese characters.

Best regards

Re: descript.ion display unicode incorrectly

Hello Pierre,

BabelMap always uses UTF-8 encoding.
I think to use only UTF-8 in file descript.ion is the best solution.

Re: Question to Settings -> Comment

Hello,

thanks michel038 for your detailed explanations.
Now I know that comment is stored in tag: -file:comment (so called in Exiftool documentation) and this tag is handled transparently by Exiftool.

Best regards

Re: Exiftool and filenames with unicode characters

Hello Pierre,

a short check with XnViewMP 0.94.1 showed that now also Exiftool displayes filenames with unicode characters.
Thanks for the enhancement/correction.

Re: Question for a new message

Hello Pierre,

thanks for your investigations and your comments.

On the plugin page for NConvert I found another plugin, which gives the correct height and width.
So I have to analyse which plugins I can use for the various supported file formats.

Thanks again and
Best regards
Herb
