The latest builds of PrintOMatic and PrintOMatic Lite include a complete UTF16 Unicode text engine on both Mac and Windows. This should enable the Xtras to print characters from any language, including Asian scripts, with a minimum of fuss.
Earlier betas of the Mac version were still based on MBCS, and had issues with non-Roman scripts, which should all be resolved now. As a bonus, Unicode support on Mac has resulted in a much better looking print preview, with more faithful, accurate, and anti-aliased text rendering.
We hope this will be the last beta release before we call the 1.8 builds "final" and package the complete release bundles, as well as creating Shockwave packages. Because of this, please report any bugs you find promptly.
Like the other version 1.8 betas, you will need an upgraded serial number
or a newly purchased serial number
