Hi hi,


I have a  database with part German text in text fields that i export to a PDF so far so good. However when i convert that to Word the German text has all sorts of *(#&$ signs within the text. Adobe say the do not support German to Word but i was wondering i cannot be the only one with this problem. I need to go to Word so i can add images and change some of the formats and add info where needed on add hoc basis.


How do you guys do this? Print to html maybe? Is it a field setting maybe?


your help is appreciated as always


I am using filemaker pro 16 on apple mac in English
