"Write BOM" checkbox influences UTF-16, too

Salut to everybody!

Thanks again for great app.

"Write BOM" checkbox in config panel, influences the writing of UTF-16 files, too. IMO it must influence only UTF-8 files, as they, really, may be written with or without BOM (without is the standard) - but UTF-16 files must be always with BOM, otherwise they will incorrect files (not readable). I think, this is a bug; at least I'd like it more this way. Or, as a compromise, may be taken a "Write BOM" checkbox at export window too, not only in config.

Thank you in advance.

I've just revisited this topic and consulted the Unicode Standard (Version 11.0). According to 3.10 Unicode Encoding Schemes, it's possible to also write UTF-16 without BOM.

I'm moving this to #bug-reports:no-bugs

Thank you, Florian, for your attention.
The times change -- now I always use BOM everywhere. (And only UTF-8.)
