I'm trying to edit text file from FTP server. Text file is in UTF-8 encoding with text in Russian. File name also contains cyrillic characters (server is FileZilla and it sends directory listing in UTF-8). I press F4 and wait for transfer to be completed. Then WinSCP shows internal editor. In this editor program shows only small part of file or in some cases nothing at all. In status bar it shows "UTF-8". When I switch to Windows-1251 editor shows full text (not decoded).
I had the same problem with the internal editor at WinSCP version 220.127.116.118 on Windows 7 Professional 64Bit.
I've opened a file in the internal editor with windows-1251 encoding and switched with the "Encoding"
-button on top to the utf-8 encoding.
The internal editor showed only 60 lines in UTF-8 and 240 lines in Windows-1251.
My solution was, go to the internal editor settings an choose UTF-8 as default encoding.
Then i've closed the internal editor and opened the file again in die editor.
Now the editor shows all 240 lines in UTF-8 AND all 240 lines when I switch to Windows-1251 with the "Encoding"
-button on top.
Maybe there is a first initial issue?
