Diameter symbol - tool library

Valued Contributor
Valued Contributor

Hi,

 

In the description field of the tool holders I used an "ø" symbol.

Since the conversion from NX10 to NX11 the symbol shows up as "Ã," the picture below is a screenshot from the search window for the holders

 

Anyone has a solution so the original symbol is displayed?

How did you enter the dia symbol?

Via Unicode?

Other?

I used "Alt + 0248".

When I open the tool library in a text editor it shows correctly and also in NX10.

What is the encoding of the library file?

It must be UTF-8 with BOM to be used correctly, if I am not mistaken.

I added my tools to the OOTB library file in NX10 and used the convert tool in NX11 to import my library.

 

The file is encoded in UTF-8.

I tried converting it to UTF8-BOM but that diden't make any difference...

 

If any of you use a dia symbol, does it showup properly?

We are not using any special characters, since Tcl is not handling them well, a simple D is enough for us.

Have you tried replacing the character used in the NX 11 file with the one used in the NX 10 file?

Have you checked that both use the same character encoding?

Use a program to compare files and check if there is any difference, if there is none just copy the file from NX 10 to NX 11.

Both are using the same encoding.

 

When I replace the caracters they're still not showing up correct.

 

I can't copy the file because then the library doesn't have the new added tool types...

If it is just the new tool classes, they are easy to copy over from one file to the other.

Just copy the description of the new class and the lines between CLASS and END_CLASS.

If nothing works, replace ø by D, DM or what ever suites your needs. Not so much eye-candy, but works when migrating the library Smiley Wink

At this point I think you would have to report to GTAC & see what development says...

Try unicode "U+2300"?
