More on Free EMS PostgreSQL Manager

Today I used the free EMS PostgreSQL Manager for a little while and found one major flaw: It doesn't handle Unicode very well. I have a Unicode PostgreSQL database that contains Chinese text. EMS PostgreSQL Manager cannot handle it in the SQL Query Tool and data view. I tried to change the configuration with no success. Filed a ticket with the company. We will see how they respond. pgAdmin III, the open source alternative, has no such problem. It handles the Unicode data in the query tool and data view without any issue.
