PyCharm 3.1.0 Web Help

PyCharm creates files using the IDE encoding defined in the File Encodings page of the Settings dialog, which can be either system default, or the one selected from list of available encodings. Output in the consoles is also treated in this encoding.

It is possible that encoding used in the console output is different from the IDE default. To have PyCharm properly parse text in the console, you have to do some additional editing.

To set up encoding for the console output, depending on your operating system:
  • In Windows and Linux: Open for editing

    PYCHARM_HOME/bin/pycharm.exe.vmoptions
    or
    PYCHARM_HOME/bin/pycharm.vmoptions

    respectively, and add the following line at the bottom:
    -Dconsole.encoding=<encoding name>

    For example:
    -Dconsole.encoding=UTF-8
  • In MacOS: Open Info.plist located in /Applications/RubyMine.app/Contents, locate the tag <key>VMOptions</key>, and modify it as follows:

     <key>VMOptions</key>
     <string>-Xms16m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=120m
         -Xbootclasspath/p:../lib/boot.jar -ea
         -Dconsole.encoding=<encoding name>
     </string>
