No Unicode support for interface elements

There is currently an issue with Interface elements (I do hope it will be fixed some day).

Before:
‘Page_Sākums/a_Pieslēgties’

After, as seen in the program:
‘Page_Skums/a_Pieslgties’

As you can see, all diacritical marks, such as ā and ē are lost, and it is hard to call a function or element by name, because names are converted to actually unreadable format.

Expected:
Diacritical marks should be retained when working with user interface objects

How can you create this object using ã and ẽ? These type of characters are not allowed in object’s name.

That is the problem - it gets those names when importing web page objects, and actually looses part of the name because of it. It would be better if non- latin (ā) would be replaced with latin (a) in those cases, there are automated testing tools, which do that, when the object is imported into repository.

As of Katalon Studio version 7.1.0, you can name folders and test objects using UTF-8 characters.

I suppose you can create a TestObject with path Page_Sākums/a_Pieslēgties using ver 7.1.0 and newer.

With Katalon Studio 7.2.1, I confirm that accentuated characters are allowed in objects names but there is still a small display problem in Test Suite results table/screen where escaped unicode notation appears in test case labels.

Could you share any screenshots?

Sure, here it is. You will see test cases on the left and the same escaped labels on the right.

thanks
