i have made translations of text into several non western languages which paste corectly in both text documents and into photoshop, yet in fireworks i am loosing the characters and getting generic symbols instead. i have tried various fonts with same results.
this is mainly chinese, hindi, and russian.
any thoughts on how to fix this as making a complex rollover in photoshop is too daunting a trial!
Try converting the text to outlines in photoshop before you open it in Fireworks. In Photoshop, go to Layer > Text, and then choose "Convert to Shape."
