Hello

I would like to report a bug in V2b18e. I think I reported this bug earlier around V2b13e.

When I enter a name in the Alternate Name field using unicode Hebrew letters, the display is correct in that field as well as in the Ful Name and Display Name fields. However, the characters are in reverse order in the drop down boxes of the Ful Name and Display Name boxes:

      

The genomap also shows the characters in reverse order.

  

In the HTML report, the index and individual names are correct. But the SVG some mixture. The fist character is shown correctly but the rest of the characters are on the same line as the surname mixed.

I hope that this can be fixed soon as I would like to be able to display these names in the genomap. The dropdown displays are not so important since no one else sees that.

Thanks Frank1

GenoPro has no control on the text direction.  It is Windows which determine how to render a piece of text on the screen.  As for SVG, well, you have to contact AdobeAdobe has decided to discontinue support for Adobe SVG Viewer.

Hi

Disappointed to hear about the Adobe SVG Viewer.

I thought that the main screen of GenoPro was under the control of GenoPro. Of course Windows has a hand in it.

I guess there will be no fixes and will never be able to place those names on the Genomaps.

Thanks for the reply.

The problem is when there is a mix of left-to-right (LTR) and right-to-left (RTL) characters, as in the English-Hebrew case.  Windows has to pick which is the dominant text direction, which is not always obvious.  GenoPro uses the Win32 API ExtTextOutW which is under Windows control.  When displaying a name on multiple lines, GenoPro breaks the names into multiple strings.  For instance, GenoPro calls the function ExtTextOutW 3 times to display the following name:

Therefore the dominant text direction is different for each of those 3 calls.

Can you circle in red where the names show in the wrong order?  I am not familiar with the Hebrew language, and have no clue what the correct display should be.

Hi

The Hebrew line (bottom line) is back to front. The Mor and Federer are correct. I am sorry, but I don't know how to do a circle.

Thank you for the explanation.
