I'm using Application called ArchiCAD. My system is in English. When I run the applicatoin, I can't use czech letters such as "ěščřžýáíé" because of encoding.

If I change the system language from English to Czech and open the application again, everything works. But I don't want to have the system in Czech language. Is there any way how to open the application so it would thing the language is Czech, even the system language is English? I don't need the application be in Czech language, just to be able to use Czech letters with interpunction.

I've tried the application called Language Switcher, but it's useless (it does something slightly different than what I need).

    I don't know of any way to do this, but perhaps the people who make ArchiCAD have some advice. By now they should have made their app conform to the Unicode standard like everyone else did a long time ago.


    Are you using the Czech input keyboard provided by Apple?  Are you using a standard Apple font like Lucida Grande?  If you are using a non-apple font, try the latter and see what happens.
