Special characters disappear from value fields in the editor

Characters like äöüÄÖÜ just disappear from value fields (like in a microflow expression or Enumeration) whenever they're entered, even inside Strings. Entering those characters into text boxes and saving them when the app is running works fine though. Also happens with characters like éáóú. This is a huge problem since I'm trying to create a Document template that has to have special characters in it. The only workaround I've found is with an entity that has those characters as default values and inserting that into the value, but there has to be a better way, right? Is this an issue with encoding or something?

This is a known issue. The release notes for 10.6.2 suggest the following work around.


  • The new expression editor does not work well with non-ASCII characters.
    • Workaround: You can switch back to the old editor via Preferences > New Features.




Hi Natalie,


In you document template under custom styles, add this font and try.


font-family: "centurygothic";


If this font doesn't work then you need to look for a font that supports the characters that you are trying to insert.
