Change profile character encoding

You should normally be able to use the default, UTF-8 encoding for all of your terminal needs. If you do find that you regularly need to use a different character encoding for a specific task, you can create a new profile with a different encoding.

  1. Press the menu button in the top-right corner of the window and select Preferences.

  2. In the sidebar, select your current profile in the Profiles section.

  3. Open the Compatibility tab.

  4. Set the character encoding.

Most modern operating systems now support and use UTF-8 character encoding by default.
