### bug finding greek characters in folders

Hi all, I ve narrowed down the problem I mentioned in my last post (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2681)
I have tex files in greek (encoding windows 1253), which are opened correctly as I ve set the corresponding fallback encoding.
When I search for text in open files, the text is found correctly.
However, when I search for a greek string in an open folder, I can see in the matches pane that the files are opened in western encoding, hence it cannot look for greek strings properly!!!

thanks very much!

ok, thanks for the reply, I was starting to feel I had offended someone, I hadn't gotten any replies to my last three posts

(sorry for the insistance, but I find this really important!)
I 've noticed that if I open all the files in my project, and then perform a search in project, the text is displayed correctly in the console window, i.e.
Code: Select all
 3184  \end{cases} 3185  \] 3186: Να βρείτε τις ιδιοσυναρτήσεις $\Psi(x, y, z)$, καθώς και τις ενεργειακές στάθμες 3187  του σωματιδίου. 3188

If I close the file and perform a search in project for a second time, I get this:
Code: Select all
3184  \end{cases} 3185  \] 3186: Íá âñåßôå ôéò éäéïóõíáñôÞóåéò $\Psi(x, y, z)$, êáèþò êáé ôéò åíåñãåéáêÝò óôÜèìåò 3187  ôïõ óùìáôéäßïõ. 3188

I also noticed that on the console I get this
Code: Select all
Unable to auto detect encoding, using fallback encoding Western (Windows 1252)

multiple times, although I ve set it as greek (windows 1253). And I know it works, otherwise ST2 wouldn't open the greek files correctly...
pleeeease, any insight? can it be fixed??

The fallback encoding is ignored by Find in Files - I'll put an item on the todo list to fix this.
