Use uchardet to detect file encodings when the Detect All option is set check box

When the Detect All option is used to open files, EmEditor will use uchardet (C++ fork of Mozilla Charset Detectors) to detect file encoding.

If the detected file encoding was US-ASCII, EmEditor will open the file as the system default encoding.

Always displays the Detect All Result dialog box when the Detect All check box is selected when opening a file, or when the Reload Detect All command is selected. However, if UTF-16 with signature, UTF-16 without signature or UTF-8 with signature is detected, the file will be loaded immediately without displaying the dialog box.
