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.

That is strange. I use a unicode character to handle this (C3 97). You can test this by using the string command \times

So try 4\times 2 as a label, and see if Illustrator does the same thing.

It gives the same result. It seems that my Illustrator version can't handle this. Never mind, it's not a big problem.
