Polish letters
« on: September 01, 2013, 02:35:10 AM »
Hello!

I'm just wondering. Is there an option to use Polish letters in FARR. For instance in Polish if you press alt+a you get "ą" letter (and in FARR I get little "1"), alt+s equals "ś" letter (in FARR it's "|'), alt+e = "ę" (in FARR it's e with an accent above the letter); alt+l should be "ł"; alt+z "ż"; alt+x "ź"; alt+c "ć"; alt+n "ń". I can get "ó" letter by pressing ctrl+alt+o but it's impossible to do with other letters. Is there a chance to fix it or ti give users a chance to change predefined shortcuts themselves. Please, it's extremely important for Polish users. And the best option would simply be to let them use same coding as in Polish programmers keyboard.

You've done a magnificent job with FARR.
Peace!

Here's Polish Programmers Keyboard. All Polish letters are simply triggered by alt:

Oh, here is an important question:

You say you can't enter them with Alt+Letter, but that may be because the hotkeys are being intercepted.

Can you try this for me, in notepad, generate a set of your letters, and then try to copy and paste into farr search, and tell me how that works.

The goal here is to figure out if farr behaves the way you need EXCEPT for being able to generate the letters with alt+Letter, or if the problem is deeper.

Hello and thanks for reply.

Installing newest version didn't do the job.
After writing Polish letters in Notepad and copying them to FARR I got something like this (see screenshot).

Right, ok so i'm afraid i have some bad news, which is that FARR does not support unicode, and is unlikely to in the near future.

That means that it can support extended character sets which are represented within the standard ascii set of the locale, but cannot support the full range of letters used by some languages.

So if you need to be able to represent those characters, i'm afraid you will have to find another application other than FARR.  Sorry :(

 :( :( :(
It's a shame because in any other aspect FARR is amazing.
It may be a layman's question but is it really so hard to make FARR recognize unicode?

Peace,

Maybe it's possible to install some form of Polish dictionary with Polish letters as a FARR plugin?

^AFAIK unicode would require a complete rewrite - this below is a clear 'no' at any rate - sorry :(

So if you need to be able to represent those characters, i'm afraid you will have to find another application other than FARR.  Sorry :(
