using LBC with foreign character symbols
« on: May 01, 2014, 09:09 AM »
version 1.x of my bible software requires user to know some English, but future versions I'd like to help people in countries with no English at all.

How hard would be to have Launchbar commander to support non conventional characters, such as Arabic, Persian, Chinese, Hebrew, Russian etc?

if I write text in say, Arabic as menus in LBC, they come out as squares.

With XP, you had to load a language pack to display foreign language, with Win7 and 8 it works straight away.

I have support for using the Chrome browser in other languages, you can do this from DOS by typing chrome.exe --lang=AR or so.   With the menus back to front for right-to-left languages like Arabic.

At some point I'll think I'll get a ISO of the trial version of Windows 8 Arabic edition and try LBC on this too.
