1. Creating new file
2. create new layer with cyrilic name, ex.: фыва screenshot #1
3. saving
4. closing
5. look in file see correct UTF-8 name screenshot #2
6. opening file via qcad/ oops! layer name is incorrect screenshot #3
7. saving file
8. closing
9. look in file. got incorrect version

my guess, that the problem is that whole file is encoded as ANSI:


but layer names are coded as UTF-8.
so additional converting ANSI→UTF-8 is demanded

This task depends upon

There have been some improvements in that area (codepage support) in QCAD 3.1.4.
Dmitry, could you check if that problem still persists?
