I'm trying to use ASCII characters from a custom font I've created (example: alt+0200), but when typing the codes
into a textField in Animate, it just prints out the numbers, and not the special character.
Ex: I try to type alt+0200, the textfield prints out 0200.
You use ASCII characters by typing them on the keyboard. Well it's actually UTF-8, which overlaps ASCII in the 0-128 range.
What you're actually asking is how to type character codes. The answer is you can't in Animate textfields. I've reported this issue to Adobe, so hopefully they'll fix it eventually. Until then, the only way is to type the character in the Actions window, or an external program like Wordpad, then copy and paste it into the textfield.
Thanks for the answer. That's good, if I can get it in there something I might be able to get this working for my purposes. Really appreciate it, there is no info about this anywhere that I can find.
