so here I am happily annotating pdfs with pdftools and every now and then, the modeline pops up, urging me to select the coding system (default raw text). I already set in my init file

(setq utf-translate-cjk-mode nil) ; disable CJK coding/encoding (Chinese/Japanese/Korean characters)
  (set-language-environment 'utf-8)
  (set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8-mac) ; For old Carbon emacs on OS X only
  (setq locale-coding-system 'utf-8)
  (set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8)
  (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
    (if (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
        'utf-16-le  ;; https://rufflewind.com/2014-07-20/pasting-unicode-in-emacs-on-windows
  (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)

but it still comes up. How can I prevent that please?
