Special symbols handling

Post by deepminer »

Hello!

I have an issue - when TextPipe processing special symbols like "º" or "−" or "―" - these symbols are replaced by question marks "?"

How can avoid this problem?

You need to ensure that you use Unicode filters throughout your processing, and/or ensure that text files are converted to Unicode at the start of processing.

You can do this using the
Filters\Wizards\Convert codepages and Unicode...
Filters\Replace\Find Unicode
etc

I tried to use these filters, but was able to achieve only same question marks or hieroglyphs.

Can you configure routine that would convert those characters plus would add some text?

You will need to provide a sample file, your filter as it stands so far, and a description of what you are trying to do.

Please upload a zip file to the forum, or send it to us via email.
