How to change default encoding to UTF-8 for entire application in SoapUI NG Pro in ReadyAPI1.6.0

I want to change the encoding to UTF-8 for all my tests in SOAP UI NG Pro. I am using readyAPI v1.6.0. 

I know that it can be changed in the properties field in the lower left corner of the SoapUI window, by changing the encoding for each individual request/test step, but this going to be a lot of efforts so I would like to know if there is a way of changing it for entire application.


Also, I want to know that when encoding is not explicitly set to UTF-8 or iso-8859-1, what is the default setting?? I am assuming it is Cp1252 as the the System Properties visible in Ready! API from the Help menu, shows file.encoding= Cp1252.  Is it correct??  If yes then changing this file.encoding to UTF-8 might solve my problem but then I want to know how to edit the system properties.


Thanks in advance.
