Umlaute / Special Characters in Mac/Windows Portable Projects

Hello everyone

I came across a problem when importing a portable project (relative paths) I have been working on with Mac OS X on a Windows system. Tropy apparently isn’t able to identify file paths with an Umlaut (ä ö ü) in the file name or folder name and these files therefore aren’t consolidated automatically in the project database.

The only solution I see so far is to manually rename all files names containing umlaut or special characters and then to consolidate each image individually before importing the whole project in windows.

Did anyone come across a similar issue? If anyone knows of a better solution to deal with this, I would be happy to hear.

This definitely is an issue Tropy should be able to handle automatically. We’ll take a look at this, thanks for reporting!
