Source code:

Checks IDE-level charset encoding against a chosen project-level charset encoding and warns if not equal.

If you are like me, you often switch between many different projects, and some of them use UTF-8 encoding on the files while others use ISO-8859-x charset encoding. Sadly, IDEA only supports an IDE-wide charset encoding setting (see: IDEADEV-12350 for an explanation why).

With this plugin, you are able to set a project-level charset encoding. This does NOT make this the encoding IDEA uses, but the plugin will now check against the IDE-level setting and warn on project open, if they are not equal. This way, you remember to change it, before trashing some files.

It should be in the plugins list, if you are running a "new enough" IDEA version.

The released version requires IDEA6, and works since build #5784. You can see your build number in help->about.
