Description

Hi,

here in Italy (and other countries where accented characters are used), the DBF files are often encoding in a way that the right DBF file encoding has to be specified. For shp2pgsql, I use for example "-W WINDOWS-1252" to make this happen.

If using QGIS/SPIT as is, accented characters get damaged. It would be great to have either a free text field or better a list of possible encodings to select from. Also Asian QGIS users will be grateful.

Thanks,
Markus

Fixed in d7113a02 (SVN r6215). You can choose the encoding when selecting file(s) to add. SPIT will then correctly import them.
