Unicode support in CSV import
I have a CSV file that contains unicode characters. After I imported the CSV file, it display weird characters for those unicode characters. Haven't found a setting to correct this without changing my OS setting. Will be nice if it can be fixed. I can provide more details if needed. Thank you!

Please send or post the .csv file. Thanks.

You need to save the file in UTF-8 encoding with a BOM (byte order mark). One way to do this is using Visual Studio Code:

1) Open the .csv file
2) Choose command (Ctrl+Shift+P) Change File Encoding -> Reopen with Encoding -> UTF-8
3) Choose command Change File Encoding -> Save with Encoding -> UTF-8 with BOM

Then you can import into UR with the correct encoding.
