Options tab of the Write to File Action allows specifying output file encoding and overwriting settings.

OptionsDetails
Overwrite file If selected, an existing file with the same name as an output file will be overwritten with a new one.
Append at the end of file If selected, an existing file with the same name as an output file will be appended with contents of a provided text.
Use Unicode encoding Specifies that the output file will be saved using Unicode encoding. If the option is disabled, the Write to File Action saves files using language for non-Unicode programs / system locale specified in Regional Settings (also known as ASCII, ANSI, or OEM code page).
  • UTF-8 · the most widely supported Unicode format.
  • UTF-16 · Microsoft Windows default encoding (known as UCS-2).
Add Unicode header Add a BOM or Byte Order Mark header to the beginning of a file. UTF-16 files usually have the BOM. It signals endianness of an UTF-16 file. On the other side UTF-8 files can skip this mark. BOM use is optional.
