Yves, I've tried this out on my system. Here's what I did to copy Polish text from Word to FrameMaker:
1. I defined a FrameMaker paragraph format to use the Arial CE font. 2. I typed some text using Polish characters in a Word document. 3. I selected the text in Word and used Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard. 4. In FrameMaker, I put the insertion point into the paragraph formatted with the Arial CE font. 5. I chose Paste Special from the Frame Edit menu and selected RTF as the paste format. Bingo - the Polish characters displayed as expected. You could move RTF to the beginning of the ClipboardFormatsPriorities line in maker.ini. This will allow you to use regular Paste to put the Polish text in. I can also switch to the Polish keyboard and type Polish text directly into Frame. I didn't need to customise maker.ini or use WGL Assistant to activate Arial CE.

A customer of mine has FrameMaker files which already contain Polish text. He has now received some new Polish text in Word which he has to copy and paste in the FrameMaker files. The known problem is that the characters are okay in Word (because Word supports Unicode), but the special (Polish) characters become question marks when you paste the text in FrameMaker. The maker.ini file has been customized and Arial CE has been activated using WGL Assistant. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
