    Tibetan Unicode Input Problems



      Tibetan Unicode Input Problems


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OSX 10.6+

      Description of the issue

      When typing Tibetan text using Mac's Tibetan-Wylie keyboard, there are a few characters that do not display properly. I have not tried all possibilities, but there are a few key ones I have found not to work. (there were quite a few issues in FM11, quite a bit of improvement in FM12)

      Specifically, typing a long"a" (i.e. tA compared with ta) does not produce the proper character

      It seems that FM interferes with the tibet keyboard input system. When displaying Tibetan fonts within Filemaker, there are no problems, I can copy and paste Tibetan Unicode text from TextEdit into a field and it displays no problem.

      This was tried on OS 6.8 and OS 7.3

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      with the Tibetan - Wylie keyboard enabled, type the following in a text field in FM12:
      ka kA ki kI ga gA gi gI
      ta tA ti tI da dA di dI

      do not copy and paste this, type it out, and it IS case sensitive.

      Expected result


      Actual result


      Notice the 2nd and 6th character in each row. In FM12, the bottom of the character is missing.

          Thank you for your post.

          Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue (as it also occurs with certain Thai characters).  I have attached your post to the original report, and I will post again when more information becomes available.
