    CombinedCharSupported=Y affects cursor placement

    Description:
    Problem Description: CombinedCharSupported=Y affects cursor placement

    Actual Results: When editing LDR and 008 the cursor placement differs when CombinedCharSupported=Y than when CombinedCharSupported=N. In the former it is before (or after) the code, in the latter the code is highlighted.

    Expected Results: The cursor placement remains consistent regardless of the setting of CombinedCharSupported

    Resolution:
    Before passage to Unicode the GUI was working with special control characters that were developed by our own development department. When, following customer needs, they developed the combined characters, the characters are now taken from Microsoft and behave according to their own rules.
    So when you set the flag 'CombinedCharSupported'=N the cursor highlights the first field conforming to our special programs.
    In the other case, when you set the flag 'CombinedCharSupported'=Y you use Microsoft fonts and rules where no highlight is automatically performed.
