Unicode Support Separate File manager

If you experience any problems with file names with national characters or in a national language, you should try the Unicode version of Compare It! Unicode is a special way of character encoding, it is used to display such languages as Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and some European languages.

Unicode is fully supported in Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and later versions. Therefore, Compare It! Unicode will work correctly only on these platforms.

You can download latest Unicode release from Grig Software at http://www.grigsoft.com.

The standard (non-Unicode) version of Compare It! supports "simplified" Unicode. It can only detect and convert Unicode text to "normal", plain text and save it back later. This should work fine if no real Unicode 2-byte characters were used. Note that even if these characters are encountered, Compare It! will load the text but refuse to save it to prevent data loss. If this occurs, a red icon  Red icon, Unicode  appears in the in title bar.
