    Chris - I sent a screen shot of the problem as a new ticket. Perhaps you can tie these up?

    Thanks - Mike

    Chris - sincere apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I could make lots of excuses but won't!

    So, the font is Segoe UI (more apologies!) and my OS is Windows 10 Pro v21H1 build 19043.1645.

    I tried again just now and it is still showing an Asian language as I type and not normal letters.

    This is what I typed and then did a Ctrl C - Ctrl V and this is what it copies as!!

    quick brown fox

    Very strange!! I tried changing the font to another (at random - MS Serif 12) but still shows on screen as Asian letters.

    I've taken a screen snip of the screen - can I send it to you?

    Hi Chris - yet another extension of this ongoing issue. I've had an email from Google "On May 30, you may lose access to apps that are using less secure sign-in technology. To help keep your account secure, Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0"

    So, the question is - should I be concerned? Is this merely a repeat of the issues before, or will it require a subtle change to the way Doogie handles Gmail sign in? And if so, is that change being looked at? Thanks for all your assistance! Mike

    Oops - sorry - it's a CALENDAR event where the Chinese characters appear - not a Journal event. The default font is Sergo UI 12 point.

    I've just found this, and want to say that I have a similar issue. If I attempt to add text in a journal entry, it will always appear as Chinese (I suppose - it's an Asian 'pictorial' language, anyway), even though my keyboard etc is 'English'. I can force it back to English if I change the default font, but why does it do this? And even the change isn't a simple change - I have to delete the Chinese characters first; change the font (I'll usually use Arial, although I don't know if this is specific) and then start typing the note. I'm using v3, so it suggests the problem has moved over from v2?

    Thanks Chris. Yes, I checked that and it is exactly as you suggest. There's actually no specific setting for IMAP - only POP. But however, it didn't make any difference. If I look at the GMail account in a browser, I can see about 60 emails going back to 2007 (when I created the account), But in Doogie, only about 9 - dating to the day I set it up. Nothing before. It's not important - just seems a bit strange that it doesn't bring down all those others? But thanks for the reply - much appreciated.

    Any comments on my query about being able to see all the received messages in the GMail account in-box and not just the latest few? Many thanks!

    Thanks to both of you for those very valuable comments. I guess Gooogle is 'playing safe' and given the poor practices of many - most? -users, probably a wise approach! I'll check out what the implications are later. One other - probably dumb? - question. The specific Gmail account I am using is one that I have had for a few years, although hardly used. This means there are about 30 or more messages in the inbox - yet only the latest two (from setting it up) are showing in Doogie. Is there a setting to allow Doggie to see all the messages in that account? Many thanks again.

    Thanks, Chuck. I believe that 2FA isn't mandatory. I certainly know it is available, and I use it with my main account, but I thought it was an option? There appear to be other factors in play?

    M mikeinnc started the conversation Gmail - doogie not secure?.

    I've set up Doggie to interact with a Gmail account, following the instructions given. However, I couldn't get it to log in, with Doogie claiming 'incorrect credentials'. Looking at Gmail via a browser showed me that a 'nonsecure application' tried to access Gmail. OK, I've now allowed 'less secure apps' in the Gmail account and it works. But - I'm a bit uncomfortable with doing this, as Google tells me I'm at greater risk of having the account compromised. Any comments? Is Doogie 'insecure'? Or is Google paranoid! And - is there any way that Doggie can be made a 'secure app' if it really is a problem? Many thanks!
