.ERD files won't be saved as UTF-8 encoding

See original GitHub issue

System information:

  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • DBeaver version: 7.3.5
  • Additional extensions: None

Connection specification:


Describe the problem you’re observing:

My OS default charset is CP936. And ER Diagram files (*.erd) won’t be saved as UTF-8 no matter how I change file type settings. The header of the .erd file is <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> but actual encoding is CP936. As a result, DBeaver cannot open it again.

Steps to reproduce, if exist:

  • Open DBeaver in a Windows 10 with CJK language.
  • Create a .erd file with CJK character name (such as “你好.erd”).
  • Add a (any) table into the diagram.
  • Save the diagram and close editor tab.
  • Double click the diagram, it shows 0 objects.

@ShadelessFox I have confirmed that this bug has been fixed, and for privacy concerns I removed screen recordings uploaded previously.

Looks like the fix was lost on the way to the Early Access version. Now it should be included. Can you try again, please?
