Hi. I'm trying to convert ANSI to UTF8 with TextPipe and am not having any luck.

I've tried "convert ANSI to UTF8" , "convert ASCII to UTF8" , "convert ISO8859-1 to UTF8" as well as ANSI to Unicode then Unicode to UTF8. Is there something about adding a BOM that I'm missing. Any detailed help would be appreciated.

UTF8 does not have a BOM - there is only one order.

The correct approach is to use Filters Menu\Unicode\Unicode Conversion filter to convert from ANSI to UTF-8. Unless you have international characters from in the upper 128 characters, you won't see any difference in the output file.

The older filters are for backware compatability, and will be renamed to
ANSI to Unicode (UTF-16LE) and
Unicode (UTF-16LE) to ANSI
in the next release, as the title is confusing.
