Hi, I have just done a paid upgrade to the latest version but now my Transaction Filter Report when you click "Copy" and paste it into Excel it translates the characters for the ticks and squares in the "C" column and the pound sign into alternative ASCII characters, it never used to do this before, is there a setting to change for this please?

Account Date Cheque# Description Category Tags C Amount

Collectibles 18/08/2007 Opening Balance Opening Balance □ £ 29.99

    It's a change that the latest java package introduced (on Windows). I have suggested the fix, but it has not yet been implemented..

    The workaround is to click the save button and then the option that says comma delimited, CSV encoded for excel..
