So, I've got this Polish document (.doc). When I open it in Word, it looks normal, all the Polish fonts are there. But in TagEditor they're only there for the first page or two. After that instead of the correct diacritics I get the "krzaczki" familiar to all Polish internet users - the type you get when you try to display a Central-European-encoded webpage using Western-European encoding. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it, if possible?

Software version? Mar 20, 2009

Did you check font used in Word?
Are you using font mapping and displaying formatting in Tageditor?
If yes, then the answer is simple: Word uses a different font to map a font which is not existent in your PC, but Tageditor does use a diferent one, which cannot display Polish.
I would strongly recommend recreating the TTX with new filter settings, where display formatting and font mapping are switched off.
Here is a screen shot of desired setting:



Deselect both options (they are on per default) and press "Save". Then recreate the ttx and you should have no problems anymore.

Thank you Mar 20, 2009

Phew, that seems to have solved the problem, thank you.

Would you say that it's best to leave those two fields unchecked permanently, or only uncheck them when I encounter a font issue?

My answer is an unlimited yes Mar 20, 2009

Displaying formatting and using font mapping is only disturbing in my eyes.
When it comes to unexperienced users they see tags and formatting in one sentence. Sometimes when you write in Tageditor even there formatting changes, leaving the user with the impression having done something wrong. The program seems to work in wrong way then. However, when you switch off formatting and font mapping, the whole text is plain Arial and no problems whatsoever appear. The only "problem" are tags - you need some imagination to understand them. But once you get the idea of tags you can play around with them and be happyicon_smile.gif

Do not conquer them Mar 20, 2009

but simply imagine what they are for.
When writing html, you use them and they are simple.
You wanna have a word in bold, use <b>bold</b> tags.
Use your imagination and they will not be a secret anymore.
