Created attachment 6756 [details]
In the attached sample, I have two solutions : one windows console application and one iPhone application.
Steps to reproduce the problem :
Open the console application and create a new file. If you go to File -> Advanced Save options, the encoding is set to "Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) - Codepage 65001". Every time I create a new file, the encoding is always utf-8. This is the expected result
But if you open the iPad application, create a new file and go to File -> Advanced Save options, the encoding is set to "Western European (Windows) - Codepage 1252". Every time I create a new file, the encoding is wrong. I expect it to be to utf-8 like in the console application
Screencast showing the steps above : http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c2hjoanywX
1. This cause problems with our source control which only supports UTF-8. Some french characters encoding (ex : éèç) do not have the same encoding between utf-8 and codepage 1252.
2. I don't want to change the encoding every time I create a new file.
3. If you deploy with Xamarin Studio on a mac the iPd application, some french characters are shown as question marks even if they are shown correctly in the file editor of Xamarin Studio (see screenshotVisualStudio.png and screenshotXamarinStudio.png)
On adding new file in iOS applications then at Advanced Save options, encoding is shown as "Western European (Windows) -Codepage 1252".
