Can anyone here cast some light on on the use of foreign characters while editing in and using Lightroom?
Have just recently made something of a "return" to LR. Its only now, as I "reacquaint" myself with LR, that I've just noticed this issue. In instances where I've used foreign characters, these characters now show up as little squares in the keyword panel. Checked back in Bridge CC and now have the same thing there - as in little square boxes in places where these foreign characters ought to be.
While using another image cataloguing application, have had no issue there in attaching foreign character (specifically Chinese) keywords to my images. In this other application, I usually copy and paste the foreign character text into the keyword field, this without issue. In posting these images to my image archive web site, those foreign character keywords are there and, again, without issue.
It is these previously keyworded images that LR has "imported" and is now seeing.
I'm guessing several questions could be asked here. One, is this something specific or peculiar to LR or to a Adobe in general? And two, is there anyway around this?
As a BTW, have tried copying and pasting Chinese characters into LR keywording field and it doesn't work - not unless I'm missing something here.
Hoping that someone here can cast some light on this matter.
