Unicode To Ansi

Advanced > Miscellaneous Functions > Unicode To Ansi

ClipMate does not use Unicode for its interface, so any text data that you see in ClipMate is "ansi text". However, ClipMate can accept "Unicode Text" from the clipboard, and then translate it into Ansi Text, using the codepage of the Unicode.  If you select a useful font/script combination for display, it should look fine in ClipMate.

Normally, ClipMate will capture Ansi Text from the clipboard, and display it. This works fine for most cases, if your windows local language is set correctly. However, if you work with other languages, you may need to tell windows to use a particular language for non-unicode programs.

ClipMate has a Unicode-To-Ansi function which will create an Ansi Text version of a clip based on its Unicode component, providing that you captured the clip with Unicode, which is controlled by the Application Profile.  There are two ways to do this:

Use the Unicode To Ansi menu option under the Edit menu
Turn off "TEXT" in the application profile for any given program, and turn on UNICODE TEXT. When ClipMate captures a clip that has Unicode Text but no Ansi Text, it'll call the Unicode To Ansi routine automatically.
