Hi All

I've got a form that I need to do stringreplace where £ becomes a rupee symbol. I can create the character in the deisgn tool in a text box with the Times font. I was going to use the search and replace function in the Production flow to replace all £ with a rupee symbol before applying the form but it shows as a ? in the replace box and when I run the workflow the £s become ?s.

Anyone got any pointers to help me out?

If the rupee symbol is available in the Times font, and the £ character is found in the data, then you can do the change in the encoding of the font:

  1. Open the Style that you will use
  2. Setup the Font Type, the Font Name
  3. Click on the button next to the Encoding drop-down list
  4. In the Available glyphs list on the right side, find your rupee symbol and drag/dop it on the case number 163, which is the one for the £ symbol.


This way, the symbol is replace in the form without having to use the Workflow Search & Replace plugins.

Thanks

The symbol isn't in the available glyphs yet it's available in Wordpad.

Is there a disconnect between the fonts Planet Press uses and the Windows fonts.

Is there a way to insert it or refresh the tables?

Do you have an image of the glyphs so I can look into it? I mean the rupee one?

Hoping this will come through.

The unicode for it is 20BY.



Thanks for looking
