Thread: Unicode Export Question -- Again!

  1. #1

    Default Unicode Export Question -- Again!

    Greetings.

    I am using BWW 9.0.

    a) At Tools / Importing / Exporting Information / Export Database / Version set at BLM ...

    b) With BW Options / General / Fonts / Unicode Fonts (Export Only / Unicode Greek / Gentium ...

    c) If I export, say, Range Gen 1-35, the output is in Bwgrkl font, not the expected unicode font (Gentium).

    d) Any solution to my simple problem?

    Go to Tools | Geberal | Fonts and check "Export Greek Resources"

    Already did this, and still I do not get exports in unicode Gentium. Instead output is Bwgrkl.

    Default

    I've never used that Import/Exporting Information option, but I also get bwgrkl.
    I'm guessing it's that way, because the main reason to do that would be to create one's own edited versions, and BW needs bwgrkl to import a Greek database.

    If I want a big chunk of text, I open my word processor (using MSWord), hit CTRL-SHIFT-B which brings up the copy popup. Enter the range. Make sure the version you want is being copied (or hit Favorites and use the dialogue to get what you want), then hit copy.

    Thanks, but the function you mentioned (above) is not what I need (I have used it many times before). This could be a bug, and I hope BWW fixes it as soon as possible, as I am sure they will.

    Does it work if you use SBL Greek instead of Gentium?

    No, the exported results are the same (not the desired unicode: Gentium, SBL Greek, etc.)

    If you are desperate you can delete the files bw900.ini (bw root dir) and copyops.dat (in the init folder) and see if that fixes it. Backup the files first so you can restore your settings if it doesn't help. Also send the backed up files to tech support and describe the problem to them. There are so many settings that interact with each other that it's hard to diagnose without those files.

    Default Same problem with Unicode export

    I can reproduce the exact same scenario on version 9.0.12.653. I have not tried deleting any files in the root directory or init folder (and would prefer not to have to meddle with that stuff, if possible).

    Can anyone get BW9 to export Unicode text this menu item? Tools > Importing/Exporting Information > Export Database

    Any text I export that way is always in the BW non-Unicode font.

    Hello ETC,

    It looks like your setup is good. It should be ok for exporting Greek as unicode. My setup is identical (and I think it's the default one for BW9) and I've never had it export in anything other than unicode. It's among the BW features I use on practically a daily basis.

    The only thing I can think of is this: I see that you are still using Windows XP. I don't know how old your version is, so the problem might be elsewhere, but unicode came out after XP was first marketed, so if your version goes back before, say 2005 or so, it probably doesn't support it. Another possibility is that, your Windows XP is more recent but isn't fully (or 100% correctly) supporting unicode.

    I can't think of anything else, because with your output setups, you shouldn't be having a problem.
