Summary

FileMaker Pro 13 TextFont Does Not Display Webdings

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13

Operating system version

OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

TextFont function does not display Webding characters.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create 2 calculation fields with the following code:

TextFont ( "6" ; "Webdings")

TextFont ( "4" ; "Webdings")

Expected result

TextFont ( "6" ; "Webdings") should display the down carrot.

TextFont ( "4" ; "Webdings") should display the right carrot.

Actual result

TextFont ( "6" ; "Webdings") displays "6" in the default font.

TextFont ( "4" ; "Webdings") displays "4" in the default font.

Configuration information

This works with FileMaker Pro 12, but not in the release of FileMaker 13. You also cannot place text on the layout and assign Webdings. It will still display the default text font instead of Webdings.

Workaround

None, not even a web viewer will display Webdings.
