Hi,

I've just upgraded to the version 2018.2.620. I noticed that window.title no longer displays special characters correctly. For example:

In previous version, setting the title to finnish: "Viesti Phoenixistä" rendered correctly "Viesti Phoenixistä". Now the translation of &#228 character does not work anymore.

Are there any solutions to this?

Thanks and regards,
Viktor

Hello Viktor,

See this forum thread, which contains more details about the reasoning behind removing the support of special characters and Html inside the Window's title. As a result of this discussion we have logged an enhancement issue for implementing an option to choose whether Html and special characters will be allowed in the title or not. This enhancement has already been completed and will be included in the upcoming release (due in mid September), thus in R3 2018 you would be able to enable special characters in the title.

Hello Viktor,

As a quick follow up here's how the new title.encoded configuration option will have to be set, in order to allow special characters in the title:
title: {
  text: "Viesti Phoenixistä",
  encoded: false
}

Thanks Ivan,

It would be great having the option to choose whether to use html or not. If it's included in the mid September release then it would be fine.

Regards,
Viktor
