    Default A5v4.5 character fileds

    is hit possible in the new release 4.5 to use diffenrent character sets in one (character)field? I sometimes have to add a greek character in a text and that is not possible in ver 4.3. Or does ver.4.5 support extended character sets, in that case the problem is also solved.
    I looked everywhere but couldn't find the solution.

    Try using a RTF object and place your fields in it. Then select portions of the text and fields you place inside and set your fonts as desired..

    That doesn't work.
    The field in which it is to be used is the title of articles of a magazine. So I never know where and in which title a greek character will be.

    I would look at ansi_to_oem() and oem_to_ansi() as a possible solution, but I have not used them. Also consider the extended ASCII set's of some fonts which have characters with umlats, grave accent's diacritical marks and such.

    I use the windows character map to insert French and German accented characters. I suppose the Greek ones are also there.

    it is exactly the extended part of the windowcharactersets I am missing: those that have the numbers above 255. Up till 255 are many used characters with accents, like in French and German, put try the greek letter phi for instance.
