ZDT: Cannot move catagories and create sub catagories

10 posts in this topic

I have been trying zdt 1.0.1 on a windows 8.1 machine and I find that I cannot move categories into sub categories when there are Chinese characters in the titles. I seem to be able to move and organize categories easily when they are titled in English. I was able to do this in my zdt 0.9.0 installation on windows 7 machine.  Do not know whether this is a windows setting issues or something related to zdt.

 

Thanks,

Tried using zdt 0.9.0 in Windows 8 and got the same problem, so I guess it must be a Windows 8 or settings problem.  Cannot figure what is different...

Thanks for the report. Do you have the same problem using Win7 and ZDT 1.0.1?

Okay... I set up zdt 1.0.1 on my old windows 7 machine and then restored my back up.  The back up loaded very well with all the categories and sub categories in the right place (in my windows 8 machine, all the sub categories were placed as categories) However, when I went to move the categories, the categories labeled in Chinese could not be moved or placed into sub directories.

Confirmed, categories containing chinese characters can not be dragged and dropped. However, they can be moved up and down. I'll see how I can fix it.

The bugfix is committed to sourceforge, so you can build ZDT yourself if you can't wait.
