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 ▸ Profiles.

  2. Select the profile that you want to edit and press Edit to open the profile preferences for editing.

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

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