currently I’m facing an encoding problem when importing xmp data from local pdf files. Both for the drag and drop and the “search for unlinked files” option cause a mismatch encoding. My UTF-8 xmp data is treated with latin-1 / iso-8859-1 encoding. This way all german Umlaute are shown incorrectly.
My main bib-encoding is set to utf-8.
How can you ensure that the xmp importer uses utf-8 and not latin-1 as encoding?
I’m on the latest main build Jabref 5.8
Is the PDF you are experiencing the issue with confidential? If not, could you share it with us so that we can create a test case and include that in JabRef’s code? - If the PDF is confidential, we need to try to create a “public” PDF by ourselves. Maybe with LaTeX?
Sure. The file is available at https://pdfhost.io/v/I7gCvO7Tk_This_is_a_Test_of_Umlauts
The title looks in Jabref like this “This is a Test of Ã¤Ã¼Ã¶ Umlauts”
Thanks I could confirm this as well, mac’s preview show the correct meta information:
