paragraph separator garbles rendering

Post by DarScott » Fri May 23, 2014 8:36 pm

Whatever is decided for the semantics of PS in fields, it should not mess up the rendering of nearby characters. I think I'm seeing part of the next wiped out (no foreground color over background color).

Hi Dar,

Thanks in advance!

The field is populated with this:

Code: Select all

   put numToCodepoint( 0x2029) into PS -- paragraph separator
   put "ABC" & PS & "def" & PS & "ghi" & PS into field "Test"
   put "abc" & PS & "123" & PS after field "Test"
   put "xyz" & PS after field "Test"
I would like to post a screenshot. Though, I don't know the way.

Not sure about the colors or text "wipe out" but this is what Dar's code gives me

That is definitely not what I'm getting. It is probably a Mac thing.

How do I post a picture? I am so envious.

This should be a picture of the upper left corner of the field with the rendering problem related to the PS character.
