I have a field that collect several text fields into one big field.
It appear that special character are lost in this process.
Is there a way to correct this?
Can you be specific on how it performs the job to "collect several text fields into one big field"?
The accents should be preserved through normal text calculation operations.
I have experienced accents becoming cropped in the top row of fields. To verify if that is the case in your case, try to add a empty row in the top of your calculation. If it is that the accent is croped, it's a presentation bug in FileMaker that need to be reported. But there might be workarounds using padding for example.
Best regards Magnus Fransson.
Yes, cropping. And line that had full CR between it was fine. Also, some font selection worked better then others. Thanks. How do I report this to FM
Intersting. Arial works, Helvetica does not. Padding has no effect.
Align center or bottom seem to be the only thing that can bring the accents back, hardly a solution but worth noting.
Edit: along the way, found an odd bug in 16. Add a baseline offset (positive number) and bottom-justify to any enterable field, and click inside the field. The text will creep downward.
