FS#1525 - Block attributes: escaped unicode sequences in files not converted on loading

The characters in Portuguese such as “ç é â ... etc ...” are replaced by codes starting with version 3.16.x
Files created with versions of QCAD 3.15.x whose characters were correct in the Properties List when opened by QCAD 3.15.x appear in this strange way when opened in versions 3.16.x.
However, in the screen and in the extraction of the list of attributes the characters are correct.
Apparently the error only occurs in texts on the Block Properties List and Attributes.
However, you can use correctly the characters in a file created from version 3.16.x

Exemplo: “dormitory’ in portuguese is “dormitório” it’s appear like “DORMIT\U+00d3RIO” when file is opened on QCAD 3.16.x

Thanks for the file. Could you point me to the right location or perhaps include a screenshot? I couldn't find any obvious errors related to texts. Thanks again.

Look at the image_1 where a block is selected and in the attribute box appear the characters with accentuation (Portuguese) in codified form.

In image_2 with zoom in the block, it is observed that the characters appear correct in the screen.

Note that the first line of text in the drawing is 'Material1', that is, the third attribute box, the third line of text in the drawing is the first 'Carga' attribute box.And the middle ones are corresponding

OK, thanks. I can confirm that the property editor show the escaped unicode sequences (\U+xxxx) instead of the characters.
