|Product Version||Slicer 4.11.0|
|Target Version||Slicer 4.11.0||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004723: Loading of files with special character in path fail silently|
Slicer cannot load files that have special (non-ascii) characters in their path. Related issues has been reported many times, including: https://discourse.slicer.org/t/slicer-black-screen-when-opening-stls-or-nrrds/10140/8
This may be due to ITK and VTK IO classes not using API that supports special characters and/or Slicer does not pass special characters correctly to ITK/VTK (e.g., converts to Latin1).
If the issue is only in Slicer (this can be tested by testing reading using plain ITK/VTK classes) then Slicer should be fixed.
If ITK/VTK readers cannot handle special characters yet then at least Slicer should display (or log) meaningful error message.
