Files with names including Unicode characters > 256 cannot be attached to transactions

BillG2 Member ✭✭

I have a receipt image pdf file whose name includes Unicode characters 277, 275 and 239. I cannot attach that file to a transaction using drag and drop or by choosing the file using Add file. If I change the three characters to Unicode Basic Latin characters, attaching the file works just fine. Please add support for valid Windows file names with these Unicode Latin Extended-A characters.

    I have been waiting for Unicode support for years. I am surprised they still haven't implement the unicode support. When traveling overseas, receipts in foreign languages are hard to enter into quicken due to lack of Unicode support.

    Same here. Can't believe only two people voted. Restored my backup from another machine to a new machine today and the characters are all garbled up, despite the old machine has them displayed properly after changing the non-unicode settings to a specific foreign language. Windows 11 these days seem to have a beta Unicode setting. Should we check ✔️ that off? I asked because checking in on doesn't seem to fix my problem. Thanks
