In all versions of IDA, I can't seem to be able to search for unicode strings. When reversing programs, I constantly see unicode strings that could have really helped if I could see them in the strings window, but I can't. Anyone have a solution?
Enter the "strings window" by either press shift+F12 or go to
View > Open Subviews > Strings in the toolbar.
Then, in the strings window, press Right Click and choose "Setup...". Check "Unicode" and press "OK".
