Unicode text - handling discritics
System: Windows 7 with Service Pack SP! and all patches.
MS version: 126.96.36.19992
Issue: handling of diacritics in Unicode text.
This sample word: raò́ (which is malformed here, but I do not have WOFF fonts installed) should show a Grave accent with an Acute accent stacked above it; (such stacking is common outside European languages). This would look like a left pointing arrow, but it is necessary for the language concerned to use the diacritics. What MuseScore does is to "unstack" the diacritics while still correctly positioning them above the vowel "o". The lower, Grave accent is to the left; the upper, Acute accent, is to the right. Think of the effect as resembling "bunny ears" on the "o". The font used in the text is Kayan Unicode, designed by a linguistic expert who contributes to Libre Office amongst other projects, so I am confident there is no problem with the font.
Can MS fix this?
