I am working in QGIS 2.18. When I open and then save a .tab file as .shp file I get different symbols in the letters of the attribute table. I don't know what coding option I should use in order to see the original letters (Spanish alphabet symbols: ñ, accents, etc...).
By default the "save vector layer as..." dialog window chooses UTF-8.
I already tried some other options but I get unreadable text, so I rather ask before I do something that hurts the file.
In fact, when I open the .tab file in MapInfo I can see it correctly. Is it something related to the system settings of the program (QGIS/MapInfo)?
