Default encoding for a mode
Submitted by Llelan D. on Saturday, 24 December, 2016 - 07:01
How do I set the default encoding for an edit mode?

For example: I want to create a new document in the current edit mode (CS-n) Erlang. The encoding for Erlang documents should automatically be UTF-8. This should be separate from any global default encoding.

However, I can find no way to set a default encoding for an edit mode separate from the global default encoding. This is so fundamentally obvious that I'm still looking for something I've missed.

You haven't missed anything. It should definitely be a setting in the "Mode Settings".

I would open up an enhancement request to have it added.
