    Hi all,

    i try to format a MessageWindow.

    so I open the window with

      
    c4d.gui.MessageDialog(res.string('IDC_DIRECTORY_ERROR', directory))   
    

    and in the c4d_strings.str I have:

      
    IDC_DIRECTORY_ERROR "Die Verzeichnisangabe '#' ist falsch. \n Bitte w\u00E4hlen Sie ein Verzeichnis.";   
    

    But the \n does not generate a new line.
    Can anybody please tell me where I'm wrong?

    And maybe: Is there a way to replace german "Ä" or "Ö" or "Ü" automatic?

    Thanks a lot

    For a new line use the pipe character '|' (without the apostrophes) instead of \n.

    Can't help with the German chars, sorry.

    You can check out the Unicode Escape Tool in my Devtools Plugin, it will translate the special characters
    into a unicode escape sequence.
