MS Linedraw Characters in Notepad ++

  • How do I display Linedraw Characters in NP++ under Windows 7?

  • Set the encoding to UTF-8 (from the menu, Encoding -> Encode in UTF-8).

  • Hello flywire,

    I suppose that your current font is, for instance, MsLineDraw.ttf or some equivalent font !

    Then, to correctly see the characters, with code between 128 and 255, just use the N++ menu option Encoding > Character Sets > Western European > OEM-US

    And if you select the menu option Edit > Character Panel, you should see the glyphs of all the possible characters, in the US encoding, which should be identical to the ones generated by the MsLineDraw.ttf font :-)

    Best Regards,
