No Umlauts in passwords

Post by Mangokaefer » Mon Feb 25, 2019 8:13 am

Good Morning!
I tried to find a search in this forum, but couldn't find one. So, if this issue was already reported I apologise.

Unfortunately it is not possible to open ZIP or RAR with passwords containing umlauts (ÄÖÜ).
So if I have one of these files I need to move them from the MacBook to the iPad, open it in PDF Expert, zip it again and move it back to the MacBook.

Is it possible to change that in Keka? I love this app so much, but this umlaut thing is really annoying. :?

hi Mangokaefer, can you share a sample file (or two, ZIP and RAR) with that password? Thanks!

Mangokaefer, I did replicated this issue. Doing some tests, this will requiere some time to fix, sorry about that. Can't you work using passwords without such umlauts characters?

Hi aone, thank you for replicating and the ticket!
Well, I need to use umlauts in passwords if I get some files with an umlaut password and after reading and correcting, need to send them back with the same password. I already told some people (can't tell it everybody) to do it without umlauts, but they sometimes forget.
You see, it's a little problem :)
Thanks for helping. :keka:

It works since the last update! Thank you!!!

(Maybe one day you can make it possible to also rar and zip with umlauts, so that one can send a reworked file back with the same password?)

Oooops, not with ZIP. :P As you wrote. Was so happy about rar, so I didn't check if ZIP works, too, now.
Well, rar was more necessary. I can wait. :D
