[Solved] Character "?" (3F) [FilenameMappings]

Post by MMFrLife » Sun Sep 03, 2017 5:54 am

How do you remap "?" to this "¿".
I looked at 3F, but there is no "¿" counter to 3F.

I then tried "3F=Alt+168"
That showed in auto-organize incorrectly as "the right-side up question mark with the diamond background", and when I looked back at the INI, it had
also translated "Alt+168" to a few digit number (I forget what; at least 5 digits; guessing, a code for the "diamond question mark").

I've already created a solution for this with RFR 5.1, but I am curious if it is possible to do in auto-organize.

I tried and it just converted this "3F=00BF" to "EFBFBD0063=EFBFBD0016" after looking back at the INI. It showed nothing in auto-organize dialog for that character
on new path. It does still show it with the "rightside up" question mark under a-o title field.

When I was researching, before OP, I saw an old rusty post mentioning that unicode won't work.
Here map+unicode#p9408 ...and again, here map+unicode#p9988.

Hi,
Looks like It works but it needs to be in UTF8 encoded HEX :( it works as "3F=C2BF"
This is based on Latin-1 Supplement table http://www.utf8-chartable.de/unicode-utf8-table.pl
Character: "¿" (INVERTED QUESTION MARK)
Unicode code point: U+00BF
UTF-8 (hex.): C2BF

This is also confirmed in http://www.fileformat.info/info/charset/UTF-8/list.htm and http://www.i18nqa.com/debug/utf8-debug.html http://www.pf-soft.ch/tabellen.php?L=E&C=6
