I am creating a new attribute for an existing shapefile in ArcMap 10.3.1, which will contain a Russian place name (in Cyrillic alphabet).
While editing, I can enter information in Cyrillic, but as soon as I save the edits, the text both in the Attribute Table and Map converts to "??????????"
None of the fixes I have found online have worked. These have included:
- Checking that I have Cyrillic fonts enabled on my computer (Windows 7). I regularly type and read in Cyrillic in multiple applications. In ArcMap, Cyrillic is not recognized whether I copy and paste Cyrillic text, or enter it using a Cyrillic keyboard.
- I have tried changing the font used in tables in ArcMap (per this old discussion - Cyrillic Language Problem ). This did not help
- I tried using markup in the Attribute table, per this discussion - http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/map/publish-map-services/drawing-behaviors-of-the-map-service.htm
I appreciate any tips you can give me.
