#62956 Printing charts in non-latin languages

Posted by yud on 17 March 2014 - 06:01 PM in Discussion

There is no metric support in RMCharts (nor RootsMagic)


Thanks!
So RootsMagic is yet another company who never heard that there is a whole world outside the US???

No worries...
Now, unrelated to the topic in this thread:
How do you set the wall chart to display metric measurments rather than imperial? My system settings is Metric but wall chart is showing inches.

The RootsMagic Charting program that produces Wall Charts does not support Unicoding. It will not support the Hebrew language characters so I don't believe any adjustments can be made. This is a part of the program that will be fixed with the rewrite of RootsMagic in prep for the Mac version.


Thank you for your reply.

Although Unicode is not supported I found a way to get it to work:

I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 but with the Hebrew UI. (not just the input method but the entire UI).
All names have been re-typed in Hebrew.
Wall chart and other reports are now displaying Hebrew characters insted of gibberish.

So I guess until RM will support Unicode the only way to achieve printing in non-latin languages is to use an OS with a matching UI.

Thanks for your reply.
I already see the Hebrew character on the screen and can type in Hebrew on my Win7 machine.
Are you saying that if I run RM on a machine with different language in the user interface my reports will print properly?
If so, this is brilliant!



#62885 Printing charts in non-latin languages

Posted by yud on 12 March 2014 - 09:51 PM in Discussion

Hi,

New to RM and could not find the answer to this.

Is there a way to print charts in non-latin languages?

I have a tree with 1000 ppl in it. One branch of 1 family is having a renunion, for which I need to print a chart. So I exported this family only to a new database (190 ppl) and started editing the names to appear in RM in Hebrew. However, when I print wall charts or hourglass charts I get all the characters in gibberish.

Is there a way around it? I really need the printed chart to be in Hebrew.

Any help will be appreciated.

Y.
