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. Open Edit ▸ Preferences.

  2. Your current profile is selected in the sidebar. If you wish to edit a different profile, click on its name.

  3. Open the Compatibility tab and set the character encoding.

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