We've implemented properties file support at the top of the new Language
(File format described here:
And now we are considering new feature: transparent conversion from
Unicode-escaped characters (\uxxxx) to native characters.
E.g. if you are editing properties file containing escaped sequences for
Japanese messages, it will show up as Japanese text in the IDEA editor, and
will be saved back as Unicode escaped characters.
Please express your opinions whether
- the feature is useful. (How your build process is arranged w.r.t
properties file storage/conversion ?)
- we need option to switch the feature on/off. (And as I suspect we will
need this option, what is the best place for it ?)
