Hi! I have a problem:
There is a problem in exporting project to a chm-file. The search option in exported chm-file does not work for non-english language... Even a non-english letter/word can't be found!
When this error will be corrected? Or it is impossible?
Thanks in advance!

Hi! Does new version of offline explorer contain patch repairing problem of CHM-export in non-english language?
Oleg Chernavin 03/25/2010 04:36 pm
Not. Yet. I am quite busy making new features for 6.0 version now and still haven't found information on this yet.

May I expect chm-export to be fixed in version 6.0???
Unfortunately I am not a programmer but can I help you? MAybe it would be better to make a brainstorm on a programmers forum to discuss this problem???
Oleg Chernavin 03/30/2010 08:50 am
Yes, perhaps so. I will plan my schedule and the other features that will be included to 6.0 version soon. Many of the new features are already complete.

I've found it on one site, not mine. It seems interesting for you:

""Вобщем, я пока придумал решение. Оно тупое, но рабочее.

1. Смотрим кодировку сайта (скорее всего, это будет UTF-8).
2.1 Набиваем в редакторе, позволяющем менять кодировки, нужные слова (в кодировке Windows-1251) и преобразуем их в кодировку сайта.
2.2 Набиваем в любом редакторе нужные слова (в кодировке Windows-1251), а затем просмотрщиком, который это позволяет, преобразуем их в кодировку сайта.
3. Полученные кракозяблы задаём в качестве критерия поиска.""

Maybe you will find way make opportunity to save in Windows-1251???
What do you think? please answer!!!
Oleg Chernavin 09/01/2010 01:03 pm
It may really work. Can you give me such UTF-8 site to test and see how to convert it? Thank you!

I really don't know what to do!
The idea is not working!!!
I've tryed and didn't succeed!
I am not a programming specialist!
Maybe You have found a solution????
Oleg Chernavin 10/31/2010 11:57 am
Yes, maybe I will find a way. Please give me the URL of such site.

For example, a well-known - I download some pages, make chm file with content and search, open this chm-file, open tab "search", enter russian word which is exactly exist in file and I can't find any russian word in file, but using CTRL+F I can find any word on the opened page within chm.
Please, HELP me!

It seems, I've found something interesting...
I've opened chm-file and found that the language of this exported chm-file is US English.
If I change language of file (using CHM editor) to Russian it can find russian words!!!!
if chm-file contains russian and english words Search function begin give a confused answer - I mean - it finds right russian words and plus some english words not connected to terms of search!!!

I think that if you will change export options and add additional ones it will help to solve problem. What do you think????
Oleg Chernavin 11/01/2010 04:11 pm
Yes, this is a good solution! I added code to detect and specify the language. Here is the updated oe.exe file:
