Macrons do not appear to be working in a control

Hi guys,

Another Question/Suggestion.

We have a client who uses Macrons in there site names as highlighted here: Auckland - Tāmaki-makau-rau.

However, when adding a parameter and a control to the page, when selecting the option that has a macron in the controls dropdown, it returns no data in the charts and tables this control is connected to instead of the correct data that is shown.

Is there any way we are currently able to use macrons in the controls? We are unable to change the wording due to cultural reasons.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Jake. Can you provide a screenshot if possible? We will look into it and come back with a solution. Thanks!

It will also be useful for us to know if

  • the dataset uses SPICE (QuickSight’s in-memory database) or direct query
  • if you see macrons when previewing data in QuickSight
  • where the data is coming from? (S3, RedShift, Oracle, etc…)
