Unicode Characters

There are several different places in PaperCut where .properties files are used (e.g. server.properties, client.properties) and these files are used to store various pieces of configuration information called properties. .properties files have a few characteristics that need to be understood when editing property values.

Each line in a .properties file normally stores a single property. When using non-standard unicode characters we need to apply a Java escape character sequence to the line so Java can correctly read the text.

For Example PâperCût would need to look like this within a .properties file: P\u00E2perC\u00FBt

We have found a 3rd party website that will change the format of your text for you, this can be found here.
