Export to SVG chockes on Umlaut

Hi, I have an issue with the SVG export. If my node names contain an Umlaut character I don't get a valid svg file. There seems to be an issue with the character encoding.

The error results in IE10 to show a blank page and FF29 to show a XML processing error with the line containing the Umlaut.

I was looking in Knime preferences for encoding related settings. Workspace/Text File Encoding does not affect this (expectedly). Any ideas?

System: Windows 7, cp1252, Knime 2.9.2 x64

Try adding "-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8" to your knime.ini, it does work for the CSV writer.


Yes, setting the encoding should help. You can also add a line at the top of the file with

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="cp1252"?>

or wait for the next release ;-)

Yet another "next release" teaser adding to my (already high) expectations...! :)
