...but as soon as you copy another clip it will no longer display many non-English letters accents etc. correctly
There's a curious non-problematic minor "bug" in CHS that probably does some of what seems to be required here - but it is transient
. I noticed it and reported it to @mouser
some time back. I think he may have "fixed" it to some extent - not that it was in the way or really needed a fix though. However, under certain conditions (I can't deliberately replicate them), the bug reappears. It has been manifesting itself quite a lot recently. It seems to be usually preceded by my having done a lot of clips/pastes, and is noticeable just after I have copied the contents of an entry of the COD
(Concise Oxford Dictionary) into the Clipboard.
The bug manifests by displaying odd behaviour and the RTF/Unicode in the clip text in the CHS Memo
pane - including, for example:
- the colours blue and red used for some words by COD,
- some bold, italic and different fonts/sizes,
- special characters (there are often some of these in each COD entry, as accents and phonetic symbols), and
- the text in the Memo pane itself becomes zoomable with the mouse - e.g., like the image in the Image tab of a Memo pane in CHS is zoomable.
I had said "I would like more of that please!"
(OWTTE), but it's apparently not in the design/development plan, and is thus apparently correctly regarded as a "bug" - probably for reasons as described above and elsewhere. CHS still rules though!
(In my armory of information management tools, at any rate.)
