Please read these frequently asked questions before you use UnionWay AsianSuite system.

Q: What is the default code page of UnionWay system and how to change it?

A: UnionWay system supports Chinese, Japanese and Koreans in the same time when you select CJK fonts for different CJK text blocks. But if the CJK text did not select CJK font (i.e., the font is Times New Roman or other English font), UnionWay system will automatically map the default CJK font to the CJK text. Default code page will determine which CJK font to be set to the default font. For example, if you set default code page to Big5, Chinese Big5 font will be set to the default CJK font. UnionWay system will automatically map non-CJK font to default CJK font. Click first button of UnionWay system toolbar, you can select the default code page to Big5, GB, Shift-JIS, EUC and KSC. Also, input methods of UnionWay system will be set to the new default code page automatically after you changed the default code page.

 

Q: How to set UnionWay system read Chinese information in the Internet?

A: You should set default code page of UnionWay system to Big5 or GB depending on the Chinese source. UnionWay system provides automatically support HZ code in either Big5 or GB mode. For a lot of Chinese home page, it will allows you to select Big5, GB or HZ, so you should select anyone then set the UnionWay system to the same one. Because HZ is compatible with GB, so if selected GB mode, you could view any HZ text correctly .

 

Q: How to change UnionWay system to display traditional or simplified Chinese?

A: UnionWay system default uses traditional Chinese for Big5 mode and simplified Chinese for GB mode . You can click Tool Box button from UnionWay system tool bar to change this default setting dynamically.

 

Q: How to set UnionWay system to read Japanese information in the Internet?

A: You should set default code page to SJIS mode first. Because SJIS mode is compatible with JIS code, so the most of Japanese information could be displayed correctly in SJIS mode. Some Japanese home page or news group uses EUC code. If you find wrong text, maybe you need switch to EUC mode.

* For some Japanese home pages, if the text line is too long or text with some unexpected strike-out line, you need to set Netscape browser in the Japanese encoding mode, change ‘The Default Encoding is’ to Automatically Detect Japanese.

 

Q: How to view CJK text perfectly in the Internet with CJK bitmap fonts?

A: You should change Internet browser program's font setting to 10 or 11 pt to view CJK text perfectly. For Netscape browser, go to Options|Preferences|Fonts, click Choose font to set font size. For Microsoft Internet browser, go to View|Font, select Medium font.

 

Q: How does UnionWay system work for Windows NT?

A: UnionWay system version 4 only supports 16 bit applications and 16 bit system controls for Windows NT. That means you can use 16 bit programs, like MS Word 6.0, Netscape 16 bit, etc., to handle CJK characters. Because system controls (Button, ListBox, Edit, etc.) are 32 bits, so you could not see any CJK character. If you need to run 32 bit applications, we suggest you to use Windows 95.

 

Q: Can I select CJK bitmap font loading into memory?

A: Yes, you can. Click Tool Box button to uncheck some CJK bitmap fonts which you do not want to load into memory. It would save some memory while running UnionWay system. But you should know that if disable some bitmap loading, from Code Page button you will not see that code page. Also, if you want to see simplified Chinese in Big5 mode, you should load GB bitmap font. If you want to see traditional Chinese in GB mode, you should load Big5 bitmap font.

 

Q: How to report program bugs and suggestion to UnionWay?

A: Please send e-mail to tech@unionway.com, or visit http://www.unionway.com.

 

Q: Does UnionWay system support CJK true type fonts?

A: Yes. But only support UnionWay’s CJK true type fonts. UnionWay provides a lots of high quality CJK true type fonts. Please contact your local dealer or visit http://www.unionway.com to get more information.

 

Q: How to expand UnionWay system support other language if already have one language support?

A: Because the kernel program of UnionWay system is multi-code page enabled, so you only need to purchase the other language's input methods program and true type fonts.

 

Q: Can I install UnionWay system (ASIANSUITE 97) and UnionWay true type fonts into same directory?

A: No. You should install UnionWay system (ASIANSUITE 97) and UnionWay true type fonts into different directory.

 

Q: Why CJK characters display irregular width and cursor position not correct?

A: Please check if you have selected CJK fonts for CJK text from your Windows application. If using English fonts like Times New Roman to display CJK text, the above problem will be happened.

 

Q: Why I can not see UnionWay true type fonts from Windows applications?

A: First, try to click Tool Box button (the fourth one from right on the UnionWay system tool bar) and select Font page. If can not see UnionWay true type fonts in the font list, that means UnionWay true type fonts are not correctly installed. You may need to re-install the fonts. Otherwise, please check if you had installed printer driver. Because a lot of Windows applications need printer driver installed first, in order to using the true type fonts.

 

Q: When I use MS-Word 6.0 or 7.0, some CJK characters typed to the Word are mapped to other characters, or CJK display is totally wrong?

A: Word 6 and 7 provide "Auto Correct" function for typing characters from keyboard. You should disable this function for input CJK characters. Please go to Tools menu of MS-Word, select "AutoCorrect" item, disable all options of check box. If you found CJK display is totally wrong, please go to Tools menu of MS-Word, select "Options..." item then View tab dialog box, disable all options of check box in the Non-printing characters group. For Word 7, also please go to Tools menu of MS-Word, select "Options..." item then Spelling tab dialog box, disable "Automatic Spell Checking" check box in the Automatic Spell Checking group. For Japanese users, you also need to click Tool Box button on the UnionWay system tool bar to check "Map Japanese input for Word" on.

Q: How can I speed up CJK characters display?

A: Just click Fast Display button (the fifth button from left on UnionWay system tool bar). All CJK characters will be displayed with the CJK bitmap fonts. If you want see exactly CJK characters display, click Fast Display button again for turn off that feature.

 

Q: Why at the end of line half CJK character appear and rest of CJK characters are displayed wrong?

A: Please check if turn on Space button (fourth button from left on the UnionWay system toolbar) before you input CJK characters from keyboard. If you import text from our source, you could use Select & Play button to add space character between CJK characters. See Chapter 3 for the detail.

A: Yes. UnionWay system allows you to select four level of space character width. Click Tool Box button and select Font page and then select the space width. Click Close button.
