Changing the default code page encoding
If text is unreadable, you can change the default code page to another encoding without modifying the font-mapping files.
The default code page that you specify is in effect until you tell AFP Visual Environment to use a different default code page. However, when you use an existing control file, AFP Visual Environment uses the default code page that was in effect the last time you used the same control file.
- In AFP Visual Environment, open a sample AFP file.
- Click .
- Select a code page encoding from the drop-down list.Note: If you have specified a default code page in the
CodePages.propertiesfile, the code page specified in that file overrides the code page encoding you select.
- Click OK.
