I found that I did not read the file with the right encoding. It is fixed in 
SVN, please retry and let me know if it now works for you.

Cheers
Jesper.

| Yes, svn. I svn up once a day, recompile then install :-). A bit risky

|
| Yes, but partial one :-/. Only a few items are translated.

| No, it works fine with the demo DB.

|
| I think you're right : the problem is due to my translated version.
| The termf "keywords", which is "mots-clés" in french with an accent,
| seems not to be found.
|
| In the past few days, I think I found why KPA was not doing right IMO
|
| : the encoding of the layout file is not present, and not understood
|
| (note that it does not have a prolog at all). So, I guess it's not
| finding the string "mots-clés" in the layout because the file was not
| saved in the same encoding.
|
| In fact, UTF-8, does not save the accent the same way latin1
| (iso-8859-1 or 15 with euro in addition and some little other things),
| so it could explain why KPA can't find "mots-clés" and lay it out at
| the right place.
|
| The thing is : I do not know what changed in the svn version of KPA,
| but now, "mots-clés" is not even displayed in the main window, only
| the icon (see screenshot) ?!? I don't have any idea what the reason
| is. Let me know if you want me to test things...
