I created a simple application to test my Chinese characters problem:
Qt Code:
  1. #include <QtGui>
  3. int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  4. {
  5. QApplication app(argc, argv);
  6. QWidget window;
  8. QTextEdit *button = new QTextEdit(&window);
  9. button->show();
  10. window.show();
  11. return app.exec();
  12. }
To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
When I enter any English character it is displayed correctly in the edit box, however when I use the Character Palette to enter chinese (or Japanese) characters, it always displays aa. If I copy and paste the same characters, the characters are displayed properly.
I searched the forum and the only similar problem I found was on a windows platform and was resolved my modifying the default encoding for non unicode.
I would appreciate any advice you could offer.
