Chinese characters (UTF8)


Autopsy doesn’t display correctly chinese text in UTF8 which is added by a module as a blackboard artifact of type “TSK_EXTRACTED_TEXT”.

Example of such text: 我想金天下午去看电影

How it displays in Autopsy:


The text is being fetched from a file in jython using, 'r', encoding="utf8")

The text is rendered fine in any other app I use in my system.

Autopsy 4.17
Linux Debian 10

Does Autopsy not support UTF8 characters in the user interface ?

Thank you,
Miguel Negrão

Copying the text which doesn’t display correctly to another program such as gedit, after pasting the text displays fine. If indeed this is a font issue, would it be possible to change the font ?
