Support for filenames with international characters

Postby Ryrynz » Tue Oct 11, 2016 10:11 pm

Can you support loading of files names with international characters? I've always had an error while opening these files.

XnView MP supports Unicode characters as does XnConvert for batch processing, but realistically it unlikely that support will ever be added to XnView Classic: if it could be added easily Pierre would likely have added it already...

Surely this isn't hard to implement. No other image application I've used has this issue.
For example I have a directory named スタッフ
And inside this is a file named 1.jpg.
If I try loading it I get Error opening file \????\1.jpg

Think I'll post it as a bug.

I have the same problem with Hebrew folder name and Windows 10. Windows 7 had no issue.

Update: found the solution for Windows 10:
Change the default Language for non-Unicode programs to the desired language (Hebrew in my case).
Thanks.

only XnViewMP has unicode support

Is it so much effort to add the support to regular version?
