Text encoding when saving as Word .doc format

Is it possible to control the text encoding used when saving a document as .doc or .docx format?

Hi Jeff,


Thanks for your inquiry. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issues and you will be notified as soon as they are resolved. We will consider providing DocSaveOptions.Encoding and OoxmlSaveOptions.Encoding properties. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Best regards,

What is the standard behavior when inserting text into a .doc/.docx document? I understand Word uses Unicode by default. If I add a block of non-Unicode text such as Shift-JIS into a Word document is it being converted to Unicode automatically? Or is the Shift-JIS encoding maintained within the .doc format?

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your inquiry. We are in communication with product team to get answers pertaining to your queries. Soon you will be updated with the required information.

Best regards,
