Special characters and formats in Text in ABAP - editor

Former Member

Hello Experts,

- I need to type in '1)' as Text in ABAP-Editor in very small letters (commonly use to point to the comments/annotations at the end of the page)

Microsoft Word hat a special Format-function 'high' to do this. If I try to copy the result into ABAP-Editor it would convert

to 'normal' '1)'.

- The same problem is to type in special characters that are not found on the keyboard. How kann I do that ?

Best wishes,

Greg

Am afraid you don't have any such formatting options in a ABAP Editor.

A am afraid, you are wrong. I am currently changing a programm with such characters.

That is why I ask a question 'how I can do that' and not 'whether I can do that'.

Best wishes

Hi Greg,

1/ You mean you write text in output list?? but i'm afraid that we can not write character in ABAP-Editor in very small letters.

2/ If you want to write special character, enter it in text element then move back to you text string in report.

Hi,

I woul like to write it exactly like you see it it below:

WRITE '¹' TO value LEFT-JUSTIFIED.

how could you say that it is not possible if I copied it from ABAP-programm ?

Best wishes
