Hi Igor,

Sorry to get back to you so late, but work gets in the
way and stuff, heh.
Have you checked the textFont ?
  get the textFont of line 2 to 2 + the number of
lines of fld "source"
If the second item is "japanese" or something like
that, it probably didn't get transfered from the
source field. So you'll have to fix that :
  set the textFont of line 2 to 2 + the number of
lines of fld "source" to "Arial,cyrillic"
(Replace 'cyrillic' with the appropriate name)

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
