Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Enables display of unicode chars in the notes client.

Release 4.6 of the Notes client includes support for Unicode fonts. To enable this feature, add the following line in the NOTES.INI file:

If this line is missing or if the setting is UNICODE_DISPLAY = 0, there is no support for Unicode fonts and the Notes client displays text by translating from LMBCS to the platform character set, exactly as in earlier releases.

If the feature is enabled, then Notes examines the currently selected font to see if it supports the Unicode range based on the user's locale. If it does, then Notes translates from LMBCS to UNICODE for displaying text. If not, then LMBCS is translated to the platform character set, just as in earlier versions.

The default setting for the North American version is UNICODE_DISPLAY = 0. Part of the localization process involves turning on this feature (UNICODE_DISPLAY = 1) for those language versions where multilingual display is important. In either case, the end user can override the system setting by editing the NOTES.INI file. There is currently no user interface in the Notes client for enabling Unicode display.

Default value:

UNICODE_Display=0 / 1


UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
