Enable file content encodings

Eclipse supports a number of file encodings. By default these are not passed on to Dimensions CM.

If content encoding support when adding files to the repository is required, edit the plugin.properties file in the following directory:

<Dimensions_Install>\Integrations\RichEclipse3.x\eclipse\plugins\com.serena.eclipse.dimensions.team.core_14.3.0.0

Add the following line to the file:

use_content_encoding=true

This way, the Eclipse Content Encoding set on the Eclipse resource will be passed onto Dimensions CM. If Eclipse content encoding is changed between revisions or on fetching files to a clean workspace, it must be changed in the Eclipse File, Folder or Workspace properties to allow Eclipse to recognize and display files correctly.
