I found out a couple of hours ago that when I try to import tags from a text file encoded as UTF-8 without BOM, Mp3tag apparently reads the file as ANSI, as all the non-ANSI characters turn out garbled.
E.g. if I have a simple text file:
ó | ’ | á | ℥
And import it in Mp3tag as, say, %comment%, I get the comment:
Ã³ | â€™ | Ã¡ | â„¥
However, other tools such as Notepad++ (my preferred text editor) and even the basic Windows Editor interpret and display the file correctly as UTF-8-NOBOM.
I'm not quite sure if I'm missing something here, but searching the forum and looking through the options I couldn't find anything. I do know about the "Write BOM", but that really only does something for writing files. It just seems like such a basic thing, so I really hope this report isn't a dupe.
