Feature request #1496
Setting the encoding type on new shapefiles
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||worksforme|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||11556|
It appears that the user is currently not given a choice regarding which encoding they would like to use for new shapfiles.
I suggest adding an option in New Vector Layer dialog to choose the encoding when first making a new vector/shapefile. (Layer -> New Vector Layer -> New Vector Layer dialog)
P.S. A big thank you to the people who spend their time to implement these important features!
(Note: I have made this new ticket based on #1310, which seems to be fixed.)

Err... that's embarrassing :)
I wonder how long that has been implemented? Surely it wasn't in 0.10.0? But that really doesn't matter any more.
Also, having the default value as UTF-8 was a good change! (I think a change between 0.10.0 and 0.11.0, but I can't quickly check) As they commonly say in Nigeria, well done!
