    Hi Julien,

    For Unicode versions of Delphi, all text is exported with UTF8 encoding.
    Most text readers such as Notepad can detect UTF8 text without a byte
    order mark (BOM) added which is why we do not add it by default.

    It may be necessary for you to add the BOM to your exported output to
    get the correct text. To do so, you can simply set the
    TextFileDevice.IncludeBOM property to True after the device has been
    created. The Report.OnFileDeviceCreate event is a good place to do this.

    procedure TForm1.ppReport1FileDeviceCreate(Sender: TObject);
    begin

    if (Report.FileDevice is TppTextFileDevice) then
    TppTextFileDevce(Report.FileDevice).IncludeBOM := True;

    end;
