      When I read a text file, that was edited with Open Office and saved as Tab Text CSV,
      I got misrepresentation of German “umlaute” and other special characters,
      when I use TEXT2 command in 2D window.
      Which kind of encoding must I choose for the .txt file to get correct presentations?
      I checked UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 (using Sublime Text “save with encoding”); both where not correct.

      Hi Joachim,

      As I remember this has been asked previously, and I couldn’t answer it completely. The solution from the developer:
      “For compatibility it can read both ANSI and UTF8 files. It detects UTF8 from the BOM at the beginning of the file. Make sure you save it with encoding including BOM, otherwise it will be treated as ANSI.”

      I’m sure any programmer’s text editors are capable to do it, I don’t know how to set up OpenOffice to do it.

      Thank You, Péter. That worked well with BOM.
