As an update to this, just tried using Substitute:
Substitute ( ptext ; ["é" ; "e"] ; ["û" ; "u"] )
And that doesn't work either - the "é" remains as a "é"
Actually, solved this one.
It was an issue with the way that the MBS Plug In was interpreting the text from a PDF. Christian from MBS has informed me that I needed to use the
function to clean it up.
All works now.
It's not due to our plugin.
Any text can be one of two ways.
either you have a letter composted as one character (e.g. é) or you have it in two characters: e ´ with the character to combine two together.
Agreed, sorry, didn't mean to implicate your plug-in per-se.
