I have a trouble with mail merge functionality of LibreOffice Writer and I think it might be related to a character encoding problem (though I’m not sure about it).
I’m using LibreOffice 4.0.2 (I’m not sure since I don’t have access to the machine right now but it’s 4.0.x for sure) on a GNU/Linux system with en_US.UTF-8 en_US.ISO-8859-1 locales installed.
I’d like to use the mail merge functionality to send a group of emails written in French (thus with diacritics).
It works like a charm excepted that it messes up with diacritics. They are displayed with wrong symbols just like it happens sometimes with web browsers and wrong character encoding.
Since I’m really not an expert I guess there is a character encoding related problem but I couldn’t say “where” exactly.
Should I have other locales installed on my system (the fr_FR ones) or is there a trouble with the mail merge function (since the diacritics are displayed correctly in Writer itself) ?
Thanks for your help !
