If I want to print a F# in the cnv object is not possible "by design"? Is
that what you mean?

So maybe It's a cnv object limitation, maybe It's a PD symbol treatment
limitation. Will this happen with other GUI objects, like printing this A#
in a GEM window for example?

Maybe we couldn't call this a "bug", but it's a big limitation since I have
to use # to represent sharp notes in "ocidental notation". As far as I know
music is an important issue for PD...

Wish I could help more if I could touch those codes, but I'm a newbie
programmer... So all I can do is to report this... "limitation"(?)

hope this report can help something,

thanx mathieu,
