The instability that I have experienced is that occasionally the Enhance window will not launch or it dies. As the content is stored in the FM document, no harm is done. The ASCII/ISO Latin/Unicode conversions are probably a problem as you suggest, but there are many examples of the same characters that were not converted. Curiously, when these characters are part of an xref format or variable, they are also corrupted in the same way, suggesting that it is an FM8 problem, as you cannot monkey with variables and xrefs from within Enhance. Adobe support spotted the post and wrote suggesting I check my SmartQuotes settings in maker.ini. I have set the required quote characters to SmartQuotes=???? instead of using the \x? notation. Let's see if that works. Very sporadic so results might be weeks or months.
