QR-Code Generator Problems with Umlauts in vCards
In the actual version of indesign (16.0) there is still an issue with internal generated vCard-QR-Code scanned by an iphone.
In germany there are special Characters called "Umlaute" (ü, ö, ä) or the "sharp s" (ß). If these characters are used in an vCard generated within the buildin function from indesign, they are replaced with other symbols on the iPhone QR-Code-Camera Reader.
I think this is only a Problem of the used vCard-Version. I think indesign uses Version 2.1 if you would just use Version 3.0 this issue does not appear.
please see attached one example
Kind regards from germany
Thanks for reporting. We will review the issue shortly
Hi, InDesign team. I have the same Issue with the reader of my iPhone camera and the special characters like é á or the letter ñ in spanish. When I read back the QR code they are replaced with some other symbols, just like said above on the post.
I hope you could do something about it.
