In brief, I am trying to produce plots. Either in Quartz or with som
function, like pdf() or png(), I am getting dots instead of "čćžšđ" etc.
And, even when I give parameter encoding="CP1250" in pdf()/png()
function, that does not change anything. On the other hand, with R64,
directly, I get all of these, no problem (again, both in Quartz and with
some plotting function).

Yes. I think they are fine.

Ouch, I am not sure here. Where I should check this? And what do I need
to have here?

Again, not sure here, but I think that I do not have any customization
file. At least, I did not make it. However, I tried to change
Options->Language to utf-8, and cp1251 etc. No luck with this.

Manu thanks for patience. Best,
