Default Special Character

Anyone know how to get this character to work? The left is how it's previewing, the right is in the text editor window. The Font is wingdings. Using FusionPro 12 on a Mac. (see screenshot)

Default Re: Special Character

I ended up using a rule to insert a graphic image of the character


return '<graphic file="Arrow two-tone right glyph.eps">'


but would still like to know why what you see in the text editor window doesn't match the preview or composition.

Default Re: Special Character

From the FusionPro menu in Acrobat, go to Advanced, then Preferences, and check the box "Embed fonts for Preview".

The problem is that FusionPro uses Mac system calls to render the PDF for Preview, and those sometimes do not show certain fonts properly unless they are embedded. If you compose and view the output, you will see that the correct font is used.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Thanks for the reply, Dan. I didn't even try composing, just assume it wasn't working.
