Introducing Support for Non-English Characters And Keyboards

While using our cloud apps, LibreOffice or OpenOffice, rollApp users were able to type in only English characters. If they tried typing in non-English characters – like š, č or ž – nothing happened, no character were displayed like they hadn’t pressed any key.

As would be expected, many users (mostly European) asked us to make their regular tasks easier by handling non-English characters properly. Back in 2013, our engineers started working towards a fix. 

Today, we’ve delivered a hotfix to all our apps. From now on, if you enter text in languages other than English, rollApp allows you to use non-English characters – you can try it with our office apps here:

Let us know how it works for you!
