=== Gramps and AttributeError ===
If Python returns a codec/UTF8 warning and this file was pasted from an external support (CD, HD, USB key), maybe filename has been corrupted ! It seems correct on screen but not on command line. Your OS was not able to properly set the encoding used on your external support.
The [ replacement character ] will be often a "�" (black diamond with a white question mark)]
You can try to fix the filename by setting the correct character. Now you will be able to import this file into Gramps !
=== Gramps cannot display some characters into reports ===
RTF (''C style escape''), Postscript (''latin1''), LaTex and LaTeX (''latin1'') file formats format backends on output are not initially designed for an a unicode support. It is possible to get a strange non-ASCII character handling by when using these formats. It could be very specific, because it has been tested and improved since many versions, but still possible.
==Edition==* {{bug|3802}} relationship graph URL's not working with PDF format
=== Gramps cannot set date greater than 21 =See also ====* (resolved) {{bug|6883}} non-Western fonts broken in PS reports* (resolved) {{bug|6884}} RTF reports backend seems to be non-UTF-aware, breaks non-Western text
Gramps-3.0.4 under Jaunty 9.04 cannot uses date editor or media reference editor. [[Installation#Upgrading_Gramps|Upgrading]] to [[Installation#Ubuntu_and_derivatives|3.1.2]] fixes this issues.
