Random characters appearing when importing txt files

Recommended Posts

I tried to import .txt files into Evernote but all the apostrophes were replaced with ’, for example "it's" was changed to "it’s". I'm using the Windows app on PC. How can I fix this?

Where did the text files originate?

Find the spot in a text file where EN puts the funny char. See what is there.

Some text files use plain ascii, some use various extended character sets. EN import handles some special characters but has probably not been tested vs. all possible special characters. If this is the case, edit your text file and eliminate the special characters by hand, or, use your text editor to convert to a simpler format or simpler character set. You'd have to experiment to see what works.

Rarely, garbled text could be due to failing media or a bad USB cable or similar.

Can you post a sample .txt file
My expectation is that an examination will review non-standard characters
Non-Standard is subjective, but I've run afoul of character sets before
