Hi,

I have entered language specific caracters in File / Preferences / Options / Current Project Options / General.
I have tried with the following åäöÅÄÖüÜ. Some of them from Sweden and some from Germany.
If I print a report are these caracters missing in the Researcher information. Why?

I have no problem with these caracters on tags. So far only discoverd for Researcher information.

I do not like that TMG rename my name and address...

Liliana,

you are correct that these "diacritical / umlauted / special" characters are omitted from the researcher information in reports. I still need to do some additional testing, though.

With regard to the German characters: ä Ä ö Ö ü Ü.... you know for sure that a totally valid and grammatically correct method is to substitute these by: ae Ae oe Oe ue Ue - right?

May be that helps -at least as a work-around- for the time being.
Thanks, Vera

Keep in mind that TMG does not support Unicode, only ANSI.


Yes, absolutely. However, all characters which Liliana listed are part of ANSI.
Thanks, Vera
