    Default Open exported Greek file in text editor


    I'm having an issue and was wondering if I can get some help.

    After exporting a Greek text using the "export database" tool, I try to open it in Sublime text editor, but all I get are characters like these:
    {\f2\fbidi \fmodern\fcharset0\fprq1{\*\panose 02070309020205020404}Courier New;}
    Export settings are set to Unicode and if I open the file with Word, it looks the way it should. But I'd rather not use Word, as it is really slow with such large files. I guess it has something to do with the encoding the editor is using when opening the file, but after changing it to almost every possible option without success, I gave up and came here to ask.

    Thank you.

    BibleWorks does not use Unicode internally, so exporting in Unicode makes the exported file unusable within Bibleworks. If I want to use it in BibleWorks (for example, to re-compile it) or to edit it in Wordpad, I export as a .txt file. If you can say what you intend to do with the exported database, someone might be able to advise you on the best way to export it.
