I've been using IDA for some time and most of the time I can find the strings I am looking for in the String panel. In one of the recent exe files I was working on, many string are missing, or not shown in IDA. Sure, not all string are always visible in an exe files, some may reside outside but when I load the same exe file into this site for searching all strings it found all the missing string not visible in IDA.

My question is how to make IDA show ALL the strings?

Most likely, the problem is that there are different encodings in one exe file. However, you can customize the display of the encodings you need at any time.

The problem was that I did not induce teh resources when importing the .exe file.
