Scandinavian characters disappear

Question asked by SiljaLindh on Mar 22, 2013


Scandinavian characters disappear


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Macintosh OS X 10.8.2

Description of the issue

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.
