Unicode Symbols in Special Characters 3.5.2 vs.3.6 ?

• Jan 27, 2021 - 17:25

Is there a reason why in version 3.6, missing Unicode Symbols are displayed as an empty square in the Special Characters ? (before they were rather rectangles containing a question mark!) :)
Unfortunately, I notice that especially the "Arrows" page (but I didn't compare everything) has suffered a lot, lost most of its symbols.
Unless I'm mistaken, I didn't see this aspect reported on the forum (or the Issue Tracker) ?

Version 3.5.2


Version 3.6

As far as I know, this dialog simply shows what is in the current font. Probably you were using FreeSerif before but as now using Edwin. FreeSerif had its flaws, but one of its strengths was how complete it was in comparison to most other options.

Anyhow, just switch back to FreeSerif - or some other font will more arrows - to access these.
