I just wonder why I have to use a UTF-8 text file in illustrator and a Window 1252 text file in indesign, I create multiple graphics using both programs and with the same variables. Having to keep track that I save the file in the correct format is a source of headache and frustration.
Is this going to get fixed so that I can use UTF-8 in both programs?
Sorry about the trouble. I would request you to post this on our UserVoice (https://indesign.uservoice.com/). This is the best way of communicating with the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases. Also, this way, you will keep getting all the updates related to this, and other users can also upvote, which would help us prioritize.
