TreeDraw WinFamily Edition and Lithuanian characters

Post by ANBO » Sun Feb 01, 2009 11:46 am

Hi,
I've downloaded Winfamily7 trial and created a database. Everything works fine until drawing my family tree. Here I see hieroglyphs instead of Lithuanian characters.
Now it seems there is no reason to buy Winfamily, if TreeDraw doen't support Lithuanian characters.

Thank you for your interest in our software.

TreeDraw supports the Windows ANSI character set only.

Dear Nick,
thanks for your help this morning.
Don't you think Unicode would be the solution?

Yes, Unicode would solve the problem. Unfortunately, the database engine which TreeDraw uses does not handle Unicode.
