Unicode

Copying and pasting from one source to another saves us time and energy; what we don’t realise is that it often picks up more than just what we have selected. Copying from a document or from the internet can often grab a jumble of invisible characters that are inadvertently inserted into your document when you paste your selection; these are commonly known as Unicode characters. Unicode characters have a higher character value than normal text, for this reason if you are to copy and paste Unicode into the body of your message in touchSMS you will notice the character count of your message jump dramatically.

Unicode characters have a higher character value than normal text. If you are to copy and paste Unicode into the body of your message in touchSMS, you will notice the character count of your message jump dramatically.

 

In this example, you will notice that there are 197 Characters in the message, however this has been calculated to be a 3 Part Message.

 

touchSMS will always warn you if there is any Unicode inserted in your message.

 

You will not be able to submit the Unicode message for sending, touchSMS with display where the unicode character is within your Message by highlighting it Red.

If you encounter unicode in your message, simple delete the unicode character and retype it manually.
