Bug Description

I am running Dr. Geo 19.06 on Lubuntu 18.04. When naming a Dr. Geo object, I can input Chinese using the fcitx input method from the host. When I save the sketch, however, the *.fgeo xml file becomes garbage, as can be seen using an editor from the host OS. Then Dr. Geo will fail if asked to load the sketch. It's very easy to reproduce. Just create a point, give it a Chinese name, and save it.

Sketch with accentuated Latin characters has issue too....
Pharo 8 regression?

Indeed P8 regression. It works fine with DrGeo based on P7 (release 17.07)

Here is a correct fgeo file that contains a point with an English name.

(I cannot attach multiple files in a single comment, can I?)

Here is a (damaged) fgeo file that contains a point with a zh_TW name "台灣".

The problem may come when saving and not loading.
But I can't input chinese (But pasting your Taiwan chinese word seem ok there). Better you can apply these changes below.

Apply this fix bellow to your running DrGeo instance:

Add and modify these three methods in the class DrGDirectoryLocal
(To open it, Shift-Enter, write its name, select it in the list and Enter)

putBinary: stream into: filename
 (location asFileReference / filename) ensureDelete binaryWriteStreamDo: [ :fileStream |
  fileStream nextPutAll: stream contents]

putText: stream into: filename
 (location asFileReference / filename) ensureDelete writeStreamDo: [ :fileStream |
  fileStream nextPutAll: stream contents]

put: stream into: filename
 stream isBinary
  ifTrue: [ self putBinary: stream into: filename]
  ifFalse: [ self putText: stream into: filename ]

If it is too much just drag and drop in DrGeo the attached st source of the modified class

Yes, it works, thanks!

After opening the class editor, I click the put:into: method, replace the original code, and press ctrl-s to save. Then I click "+Inst. side meth" tab, paste another method, and press ctrl-s. Finally do the same for the 3rd method. After that, sketch saving works correctly. I can open the saved file in a text editor and see the Chinese name. Loading also works.
