Insert Sysmbols & Special Characters...(R)(T)(C)


Recommended Posts

Its seems important to be able to insert and use special characters in text, as much of the graphics from Paint.net are used on web pages, etc.

When I try to cut & paste text with special chacters it substitutes things like â for ®.

Or did I overlook this feature?

Thanks

You didn't say where you're copying the special characters from, so I don't know what to tell you. It generally depends on which font(s) you're using, because we support the full Unicode range of text characters. I've seen people use Paint.NET to put Japanes and Arabic text on to images, two languages that are completely alien in input methods compared to English.

I just tried pasting your 'â' from this forum post and it showed up perfectly in Paint.NET.

Fonts like Arial or Times Roman for example do not nesessarily contain special characters like ®, ©, etc., but fonts like "Symbols" contain all special characters. I think the need to insert special characters would be best served by an "Insert", "symbol", as used in MS Word. The core issue may be that Paint.net won't allow multiple fonts in a single line/string. This would explain this problem for you, as the ® symbol for example is from the "Symbols" font...

Then that's a different issue, and is one we're aware of. Our text editing facilities are currently quite rudimentary and we are planning to upgrade them.
