I use FileMaker Pro for a database with 56 000 dachshunds. With version 9 I never had to think about the character differences between Macintosh and WIndows but when I upgraded to 12 I've got this problem:
When I save/send records to pdf the Finnish characters don't show when the pdf-file is read with Windows/Firefox.
When I export records to a .tab-file and try to edit it in Mocrosoft Word the Finnish characters are changed to another coding, UTC8, maybe.
I never had this problem when using FileMaker Pro 9.
