Re: become????? after saved

You probably saved the text with an encoding that does not support chinese characters. In this case, SuperEdi converts all non-supported characters to question-marks when saving. There is no way to recover the original text.

On English or German version of Windows, the default encoding (ANSI) is iso-8859-1, which does not support chinese. I don't know what is the defaut encoding on chinese Windows.

If you often write chinese, I recommend you to select a different default encoding, for example UTF-8.
