    Hi,

    Over here in Norway we have all this funny Scandinavian letters. Like the o with a slash through it and the a with a circle on top...^^

    My question is - Why doesn't this products support foreign languages?

    That would be more easy for us if we could cut and paste one of our funny letters into the logos!

    Best regards,
    Alex

    Which Laughingbird software are you talking about Alex?
    If you mean The Logo Creator then you can get get accented characters (assuming the font being used supports them) by typing <ALT>+number from numerical keypad, sorry I do not know the codes for your accented characters but as an example <ALT>+171 produces ½. If you mean other software like Flash Ad Creator then yes a number of members have asked for this to be added to future releases.

    I use the Corporate edition and I try what you say but nothing happends.

    Also I try to update the product but it doesn't work. When I press on the Corporate pack there is nothing there. Only in the Corporate edition I can find some logos and at my templates that I made.

    It is really to bad that I can't cut & paste one of my local letters into the logos. That gives a hudge limitation to the use of this great software for europeans like me.

    Sorry to hear it will not work for you Alex, see the image below where I pasted a few letters with accents into a logo without any problem. Are you sure the font you were using had accented characters?

    Regarding the empty Corporate Pack folder, this was left in the installation in error - the Corporate logos are in the Corporate Edition folder as you spotted.

    Try a different font because it just might be a font issue because the foundry didn't add foreign characters. From past experience I generally find that system fonts work more often than not. In some cases adding a zero to the beginning of the code number helps.

    I would love to have cut and paste abilities too.

    One thing you might want to try is using another program to do your text especially if it has "Word Art"capabilities and just import the prepared text into your design.
