Title

displaying accented characters in text fields

Post

Entering the accented character "ś" in a text field in FMPro 12 Advanced on my Macbook Pro running OS 10.7 causes FileMaker to display an unaccented "s" followed by a square box.  Changing field storage to Unicode doesn't fix the problem.

This database is just an intermediate tool so it's not the end of the world if I can't get that accent to show up in FileMaker.  My browsers and text editors all display the accent just fine, as will, I'm sure, most everyone else's browsers when viewing web pages with symbols like this.
