Re. the infinity symbol, this is what I have tried: 1. When I copy the infinity symbol from the Character Map and paste it directly into a new portrait FM document (unstructured) - paragraph set to use Arial Unicode MS - the result is a question mark.
I also use an FM10 DITA application to create XML files, so: 2. When I copy the infinity symbol from the Character Map and paste it directly into a DITA XML file - opened in Notepad++ - the infinity symbol appears correctly in the XML file. 3. When I open that XML file - via my FM10 DITA application - into an FM XML document, the infinity symbol is displayed correctly. I can copy the infinity symbol - in DITA FM - and paste it in the Find Text window where it also appears correct and where clicking find functions correctly. 4. I can copy the infinity symbols in my FM XML document, create a new portrait FM document (unstructured) and it appears correct. When I then change the para font from Arial Unicode MS to Times New Roman, the infinity symbol still displays correctly but in the Times NR font. 5. I close and save the unstructured FM document and then reopen it and the infinity symbols is displayed correctly in both Arial Unicode MS and Times New Roman. 6. Lastly, I copied and pasted the symbol from the Character Map into a regular Notepad document and saved (UTF-8 encoding) and imported this text file by copying into the unstructured FM file and it imported correctly. So, I also couldn't find any keyboard shortcut method to produce the symbol either, but using method 6, I could populate my FM document with the symbol correctly and then be able to use it freely in the document. At least a workaround. --Paul Wilbraham Paul Wilbraham Senior Consultant & Trainer M-AIS T: 0131 226 5893 M: 07928 797 281 On 13 February 2014 19:33, Fei Min Lorente <feimin.lore...@onsemi.com>wrote: > I'm working in FrameMaker 10 on Windows 7 and I cannot insert the > infinity symbol.
