Saeed Alavi says:

When I want to enter characters as input I cannot type normal characters and my keyboard type weird characters!! I tried to change encoding to UTF8 but again it did not fixed. I also checked several encoding but none of them worked. I have this problem just for letters and numbers can print correctly.
