 Posted: Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:36 pm    Post subject: Exporting numbers in scientific format to Illustrator Hello, Maybe this has already been reported, I'm not sure how to check because I'm quite a newbie in using a forum. And actually I'm not sure it is a bug in DataGraph, the problem may be on my side. When the format "scientific" is selected for axes marks and I export the graph to Illustrator (CS4), the "x" is not interpreted as a part of the text and is vectorized. I was surprised because I expected the "x" to be a simple letter. Is it actually a symbol that my Illustrator can't recognize? There isn't any problems with special characters inserted either with DataGraph commands (/beta and so on) or with the special character pannel from the system (MacOSX) though. I was just wondering if this could be fixed, even if it's not complicated to arrange that in Illustrator afterwards. CK
