Hi, Just for your information: The Windows Character Map tool may show characters, even if they are not part of the font! Therefore it could always happen that you try to copy and paste a certain character although it is not part of your font! Alternatives are. BabelMap, free and not very user-friendly. No installation necessary. You can start the exe which you download. http://www.babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelMap.html PopChars, often recommended, not free (30 Euros) http://www.ergonis.com/products/popcharwin/ Best regards Winfried
Furthermore, the FM Edit>Utilities>Character Palette also shows characters that do not exist in the font selected. FM will silently substitute a different font if you insert one of those characters using the utility. Very annoying.
I use BabelMap; once you get used to it, it's not /too /hard to use. best, -- Stuart Rogers Technical Communicator Phoenix Geophysics Limited 3781 Victoria Park Avenue, Unit 3 Toronto, ON, Canada M1W 3K5 +1 (416) 491-7340 x 325 http://www.phoenix-geophysics.com
