    There are New European Fireprotection classifications with Subtexts coming out this year and it would be great to have these texts available as VALUES, that the user can choose the firerating of a door.
    I tried it out and copied such texts with some subnumbers into a VALUES-value, but after changing the script and coming back those special characters where replaced by question marks. (AC 17 on MAC OS X)
    Is it possible in any way? See screenshot of the new regulation.

    I tested this quickly (on Windows), and it seems you can’t enter Unicode into the GDL editor. As a workaround, you can enter Unicode into String type parameters, set them to hidden, and concatenate your strings using those.
    BTW the subscript characters are very hard to read in the settings dialog.
