I can enter Swedish text in the Lyrics dialog (äåö), but as soon as I close the dialog, the diacritics disappear
The lyric edit boxes are actually implemented as standard Windows controls. NWC does not implement the keyboard or mouse behavior in these controls. The keyboard and mouse behavior is entirely under the control of Windows, although we certainly could add things if necessary.
On systems that support Unicode, Unicode characters can be entered into the Lyrics Editor. NoteWorthy does not support Unicode. When you close the Lyrics Editor, NoteWorthy translates Unicode characters into a question mark and the Unicode input is lost.
IMO, this is not hardware issue. All keyboards are pretty much alike. Changing the keycaps does not change the make/break codes that they generate. Software accounts for the differences that the user sees.
now are many years that all keyboards (computer keyboards) are made equal. Some have special keys added, for example volume control, but the rest is identical.
All the rest is software.
I disagree firstly that the physical characteristics of all modern keyboards are the same.
when you press a particular key, it sends a command to the CPU which will interpret it according to its code page - which is probably hard coded into the motherboard.
The label on the key is only significant in that it tells you what the character is that that key will produce when activated.
...If you use a True-type font for the lyrics which does not contain characters over 255 *and* contains the Nordic-specific characters, then the printout should be correct.
ALT key plus zero and the decimal number (if you are using an English keyboard)
Should NWC drop support for the Win95/Win98/Win2000(?) family (for which Unicode is not available), to become a Unicode aware application?
As I have indicated before, we have been working on a Unicode migration plan for NWC. Details will initially be available in the form of a preview/beta release.
