Unicode export should not disable "Save as plain text"
Posted 06 December 2012 - 01:36 PM
When Export as Unicode is selected, the "File/Save text selection as Plain text" is disabled. This makes no sense. Unicode is plain text. In fact, Unicode Greek and Hebrew is even more conducive to saving in plain text format than legacy font encodings, because Unicode Greek/Hebrew actually displays at Greek/Hebrew even in plain text format. Accordance may have internal limitations that make this limitation so, but it is a bug.
This bug is even worse, now, since moving "Export as Unicode" outside of the Greek/Hebrew tab, because now if I have even an English-only text selection, and trying to save it as plain text, and it won't allow the Plain text option if the "Unicode export" option is selected.

For the record, no functionality changed when the preferences moved around. Export as Unicode has always affected English, and that disabling has always been in place, even for English.

Yes, I understand the legacy reasons why the problem is there, of course.
And, disabling save as Plain Text is a bug from the user perspective. UTF-8 is plain text, too.
