Hi!
I have the following problem. When I write on the search bar with cyrillic letters, there is any unknown symbols, but not the letters, I've written.
I wonder if there is any option that will allow me to search for words, written in cyrillic font.

Are you referring to searching attributes? This should work. We test a variety of unicode and character set encodings (include Cyrillic, Japanese, and Chinese) with every release of MAPublisher.
Try contacting Avenza support directly, they are very helpful :).

Addition to Garvan's question --
Are you referring to the MAP Web Author search function?

At any rate, please contact us at support@avenza.com with the description of the problem you are experiencing. We will be happy to help you.

Unfortunately this appears to be a problem in the base technology that MAPublisher's flash component is based on, Adobe Flex.

See this Adobe forum thread: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/432182

The work around they suggest is to copy and paste the characters into the text field. Also, you may want try different input methods (e.g. virtual keyboards or ALT-key combinations).

Also, I should mention that a better workaround would be to create a search box in HTML use the MAPublisher Web Author API (see http://www.avenza.co...pwebauthor/api) to use the search function. This map demonstrates how:
