18710Re: [NTB] Problem in copying/pasting extended-ascii characters
- Apr 24, 2006Hi Zielona,
I get a few problem reports of NoteTab Std/Light not being able
to display Polish extended characters. I am not certain, but
believe there may be a problem with NoteTab Std/Light when using
Polish characters. The only suggestion I have is to try setting
the document you are pasting into up with a Polish font before
pasting. (Unless you find a fixed width font to use in NoteTab
Pro, I doubt you'll get it to work at all in it.) You might try
looking at the Script type in the Font dialogs to see if any of
those will work.
We are still beta testing v5 of NoteTab and still mostly fixing
the bugs that were created when Eric upgraded the program code to
a newer version. Once we get those fixed we'll start on other
none bugs and add some easy to implement new features. At that
time, we'll take a look at the Polish extended characters. The
new upgraded program code (program libraries - not Clipbook
Libraries) may automatically correct the problem if it is a
NoteTab or Delphi (a program that Eric programs with) issue.
