Yesterday Momentics notified me about an automatic update, so I installed it and now Momentics does not display correctly accented characters such as áéíóú.
The update is Version: 2.0 Build id: v201310251603
I had never messed with the encoding configuration, which supposedly is UTF-8 by default.
Since the update (, I believe, ) if I write 'á', the IDE displays it correctly but the app displays those characters (for example, in a SystemDialog) as garbage.
I changed the encoding to ISO-8859-1 and the same thing happens.
Now the weird thing is, if I set the encoding as ISO-8859-1, paste the content with accented characters from any other text editor and change the encoding to UTF-8, the IDE displays those characters as '�', but the app displays them correctly.
Before the update, what I typed was what I saw in the IDE as well as in the apps.
Is there any solution?
Thanks in advance.

I'll look into the problem for you (thanks for the build id).
But - please confirm - when you are in the Momentics IDE - your "help about" shows "version : 10.2.1" ?

Help -> About Momentics IDE only shows
Momentics® IDE for BlackBerry
Build id: v201310251603
If I click the QNX Software Systems Limited icon it shows a list which contains Momentics IDE 10.2.1.v201310251603 for Feature Id com.qnx.tools.bbt.ide
That's the only item with version 10.2.1, every other one is at 5.0.0
Below the list, this is displayed:
Momentics® Integrated Development Environment
Build id: v201310251603
Was that the info you were looking for?

Hi Pepe - thank you - the more info the better.
I've reported it internally - they are not able to reproduce the error.
They have asked me for your :
1 device OS version
2 device locale setting
3 if possible, bar-desciptor file (you can email it to gfioret AT blackberry DOT com (that is me)
4 Confirmation of the encoding used in the editor (in proj explorer, right-click properties on the file containing the accented text, see setting for ‘Text file encoding’)

I'm testing on a Z10 with OS 10.0.10.88
The locale is Spanish
I'll send you some screenshots and their explanations.
Thanks for your help!
