Hi, most of my scripts files are encoded utf-8, and I write the comments in french in them. Filelocator Pro doesn't seem to be able to read the accent correctly(ex: paramètres) and thus will not find the text when there are accents in it.

Saving it in UTF with BOM will works, but that is not a possibility as I really need them to be save without BOM to work properly with some tools.

Is it possible for Filelocator Pro to correctly index those?

You can tell FileLocator Pro to default specific file types as UTF-8 in the UTF-8 Default Format Settings:

UTF-8 Default Format Settings

Just add each file type to the File types list.

Thanks!  I'm beginning to be impressed by the flexibility of filelocator :)
Indexing redone with the settings changed as described, it worked!
