How do I fix encoding on projects?

I messed up all my SER projects a while back. I wrote about this in another post months ago.

Checking my backups, I found it happened when I did a bulk search-and-replace in my projects to alter settings and didn't pay attention to the unicode encoding. :blush:

This first came to my attention b/c Polish and German characters were messed up.

Sven realized I must have screwed up the encoding,  somehow. And I did. :(

Now, I have to fix EVERYthing, still.

Anyone know of an existing utility that will  simply change encoding?

This seems like a super-easy utility to write, I mean all it would do is open a file, check first chars, on match, repace, save.

Still...anyone know a script that will do this that exists?


Then, I will just go into SER, open projects one at a time,  and change the German and Polish fields. Seems easiest way to fix w/o making more issues.

    OK. Thanks, Sven. It's a LOT of projects. I'll send one, b/c they're all the same.
