It would be nice if VW would get better support for OpenType features, especially for symbols and fractions that are available in fonts that sometimes cannot always be inserted with e.g. the windows character map. For example, standard fractions like 1/2, 1/4 etc. are usually not a problem but fractions like e.g. 3/16 don't show as a proper fraction in text even though the font supports such fractions in its font properties. It would be nice if VW would support OpenType fractions so that they can be used in e.g. dual units setups and/or dimensions etc. The same applies to some special characters that are in the private space of unicode fonts, they may not always show up in e.g. the windows character map utility but they do in other graphics/dtp programs that can show the full glyph/character palette. To have such a palette in VW would be quite nice as then you could make full use of such fonts.
Ryan W. Lass posted a question in TroubleshootingHello, I have been coming here for a while to find solutions for things in VW that I couldn't figure out on my own. But now I have one that I can't find a solution for anywhere. I just recently switched from 2015 to 2017 and have run into some lost functionality for fractional alt codes. In 2015 I used alt codes for special characters constantly and the fractional ones have all changed and/or some of them no longer work in 2017. 2015 2017 alt188 = ¼ alt0188 = ¼ alt189 = ½ alt0189 = ½ alt190 = ¾ alt0190 = ¾ alt8539 = ⅛ ? alt8540 = ⅜ ? alt8541 = ⅝ ? alt8542 = ⅞ ? Does anybody know of a solution or an alternate alt code? I could, of course, copy the fractions out of Word but that is tedious compared to the way 2015 worked which was awesome. I am running Windows 10 if that is useful for troubleshooting.
