I'm on a Mac with OS 10.4.10, Rev 2.8.1. Made a new stack with one
text field (no specific settings) and then put Chinese via the
message box using
set the unicodeText of fld 1 to "[Chinese unicode characters]"
Tried it with Chinese text of different length, including three
characters. No problem here, except that the Chinese in the message
box turns into garbage after I hit the return key.
If it's a small stack you might send it to me so that I can have a
look at what "doesn't look right."
All the best,
