Opening RTF with Chinese characters

Post by AIBLTD » Thu Jul 05, 2018 8:05 am

Hi everyone, just wonder if anyone is having problem reading RTF files with Chinese characters?

I save .RTF files from TextEdit from Mac having either traditional or simplified Chinese characters in Unicode (UTF-8) but not able to view any characters in it when opening with TM for Android.

Any thoughts perhaps?

Can you upload a file? I can test it on mine and send you a screen shot. My phone is Chinese. I spent the last 6 of 7 years in China, so in theory... Should be able to get the right text.

For what it's worth, I just created an rtf doc, wrote a couple of sentences, saved it, closed it, opened it... and it was fine.
Cheers

If the font cannot be found on the Android device, TextMaker uses a replacement font. It seems your replacement font does not offer Chinese characters. Please try another font.

Thanks for your replies, you guys are very helpful indeed.

I tried different fonts installed in Android Samsung Note8 and eventually the Chinese characters came out. The only thing missing was the paragraph indentations, line spacing and tab spacing, but I can live with that for now.



The next thing which I am having issue with the TM Android regarding this subject is to saving styles sheets, which I need some time to play with and see if there is a bug or just me.

Anyhow, thank you guys, much appreciated!
