Windows 7: ASCII code problem

ASCII code problem

Hi,

I have a problem when I try to write a greek symbol using ASCII code.
Whenever I type ALT+0248 (which on an XP 32 bit would give me a "PHI" symbol), on my Windows 7 pro 64bit all I get is an empty square ...
I tryed changing the language (Romanian to English(US) and vice-versa) and still nothing ...
Other ASCII codes work but some dont .... The "PHI" is the most important one, as I use it in SolidEdge (3D CAD).

If anyone can give a solution to my problem I would be verry happy

Hi mbogdan and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Have you tried accessing these characters from Character Map - Vista Forums instead?

I just tried in Word 2007 and in notepad and ALT 0248 gives me a phi. What app are you typing in? Also, you need to have numlock on and type the digits only on the numeric keypad.

I have this problem in SolidEdge, a 3D CAD program made by Siemens.

Numlock is enabled, and of course I type on the numeric keypad. I tryed also in OpenOffice writer and there it works ... also in notepad

I supose it has something to do with SE .. but I cant seem to find the problem ... it worked great on the other PC without having to make a SPECIAL setting ... I'm stil waiting for a response on SE forum ...

Thanks btw

Alt + 227 will not alwyas produce Pi, on Windows 7 Professional without the LIPs installed Alt + 227 is , other regional variations of Windows will differ too this is not limitted to Win 7.

PHI is different from PI

PHI = Φ
PI= π (what you said)

Which font is SE using? Not all fonts contain all of the special characters. Some do, and some only contain a selection.
