Q - question

Accented characters (umlauts) are incorrectly displayed in the material schedule on isometric drawing.

A - answer In version 2024, squares or rectangles appear in the isometric material list (BOM, table) instead of accented characters. In the previous version, the characters were displayed fine.

Bill of Material - Plant 3D

To display the accented characters correctly, type the variable name PLANTPCFUNICODE in the command line and set its value to ON (1).

This variable controls format of the generated PCF file. Its default setting was 0 (ASCII), but since Plant 3D 2024.1 it has been changed to 1 (Unicode).
