The Scroll Exporter work best with the default file encoding being set to a UTF-8 compatible encoding (i.e. MacRoman is UTF-8 compatible).

To configure the default file encoding you need to set the Java system property file.encoding to a value of "UTF-8". This can be done by adding the following command line parameter: -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

Please refer to the Confluence documentation on Configuring System Properties.

If your Confluence uses a default file encoding that is not compatible with UTF-8 you may run into character display problems if your export templates contain non-ASCII characters such as German umlauts, Greek or Cyrillic characters. These characters might be replaced by question marks ('?') then.

The Scroll Exporter automatically detects your default file encoding and prints a warning on the Space and Global Template administration screens if necessary.
