I'm currently translating a software manual where a Windings arrow (F0E0) is used to indicate navigation in menus (Start -> Open -> etc.).

The imported file is an MS Word document (DOCX).

Is it possible to import a DOCX file in such a way that the Windings arrows are represented as such, instead of being represented by tags?

The trouble with wingdings is that they are special characters which look different than other fonts, and for Studio to know that it is a wingding arrow, I would think it would have to import it as a tag telling it that the font is wingding. I would have liked the font information to be kept, though, for instance when I copy special characters from the charmap, but they are always copied without the font information, with the result that I get a different character than I really want.

None of the CAT tools represent Wingdings arrows as such.



Most of them can display the Unicode arrows.

Does someone have a Word macro or Studio plug-in to convert Wingdings arrows to Unicode arrows (and back)?
