unicode under limit

Postby Yves on Wed Aug 22, 2018 2:18 pm

Dear All,
i have found special characters in unicode, but interact in APL are strange.

for example :
on site unicode-table dot com, look the character 1F47D (extraterrestrial people)
      ⎕ucs 128125

appearance is black square.

i dont see it in open office, but i see with my browser...
what can i do ?

Regards,
Yves

Hi Yves,

You need to find a font which supports it.

In Dyalog, I typed this to get the character.
⎕ucs 128125

I searched the internet for that character in font.

I went to here https://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/1f47d/fontsupport.htm and found that Segoe UI Symbol supports it. I have that on my MS windows computer, and can see the character if I change the font to it.

Regards,

Vince
