Textadept is quite dynamic but not *that* dynamic, so it doesn't pick up
changes automatically. You could copy Textadept's 'menu.lua' to a
'~/.textadept/modules/textadept' directory and add your encodings to it.
This might require that you occasionally update it if Textadept's
'menu.lua' changes.

An alternative could be to simply call

You could also assign that to a keyboard shortcut, e.g. for Ctrl-8:
keys.c8 = function() _M.textadept.keys.utils.set_encoding('KOI8-R') end

Hope this works.
