    Hello, Parallels Toolbox product team:
    I have a suggestion about a Text encoding converter.
    And here's my idea and design:

    An "Encoder" can convert serval text files into a target encoding. These text files can be any txt file or any program source (.c .h .java .m .cpp etc.)
    Users can drag and drop these files to "Encoding" place to convert, just like the archiver tool.
    And the 3rd picture figured out the setting page about "Encoder".
    Users can choose what kind of format will be after converting.
    An optional function shall provide as "convert line endings of each file".
    And if users select "Keep original files." Encoder will create a copy of each target file.
    If users don't select "Keep original files", A warning will appear and says All selected files will be converted into above format.
    The encoder tool will be useful to programmers and who attend to deal with plain text files with different encoding.
    TextEdit App in mac can do the same job, too. But its difficult to convert every file with these operations: open, save as, choose encoding...
    So a text file encoding converter will be convenient and great!
