Auto PeakTrace™ 6 (Windows version only) offers support for processing files located inside folders containing unicode characters (non-English), plus the ability to putput unicode logfiles. This allows the logfile to be output in Unicode, rather than ASCII text. Under normal circumstances, any Unicode characters will be rendered as a “?” in the logfile (Figure 1), but with this option selected, the logfile will display the Unicode path characters (Figure 2).
- Ensure that the program used to open the log file is capable of displaying text in Unicode. Most Windows applications can display Unicode characters.
- If you are processing files and selecting input and output folders with English-only characters it is advised that you don’t use this feature. Unicode characters can cause some downstream applications that parse the logfile to break. The default is off by default.
