#372 Song Lookup Unicode issue


Opensong ver.2 beta on win7 Ultimate English

Set mode => Sets => Example => New Item => Song => Song Lookup

Non-english characters are not depicted correctly. Consequently lookup fails.
Specifically, Turkish characters ı and ş are depicted as 1 and _ while İ and Ş are depicted as 0 and ˄

Please note that I had the same problem with the portable version 1.6 and the issue was resolved thanks to swampcat

Please comment

    You can download the entire Turkish song book here - the titles have been stripped of any unicode to allow searching correctly. http://yasamkilisesi.com/tr/kiliseler-icin-kaynaklar (http://yasamkilisesi.com/sites/default/files/opensong/current_allsongs_opensong.zip)

    Thats not the issue. I am speaking of a bug that was resolved in a previous version, namely 1.6. Besides, stripping off unicode characters is not the ultimate solution because opensong claims to be "multilingual"

    Another vote for this. Sorting of items which ignores national (czech in my case) alphabet is really annoying when you search something. It is also impossible to enter national character into search textbox - it is improperly replaced by another character.
