Numbers replaced with other characters



  • Hi, I’ve had this issue for quite some time, when i’ve been using notepad++ (and other programs such as gamemaker) certain numbers are displayed as different characters and although they still are the number I type them in as they are visually a different character which makes it such a nuisance to read. I have already done an SFC to check for any broken windows files of which it said there was no issue so any ideas would be appreciated.
    1 = 1
    2 = 2
    3 = h
    4 = 4
    5 = e
    6 = k
    7 = C
    8 = !
    9 = 9
    0 = y
    Thanks in advance.

    first I would check if a font is broken by choosing another one
    or if the keyboard layout has been changed.

  • How does one check the key mapping?



  • @Charlie-Murrell

    out of my mind. win key->control panel->region and language->keyboard

  • When I checked it, it said English so I that’s fine, but other than that I have no idea what the issue could be as I’ve done both the ideas you’ve had.

    Because you said that this happens with other software as well we have to assume
    that this is a general issue. Afaik, beside a nasty virus/malware, those are the only
    two areas which would explain your behavior.
    So if you only have ONE language defined, which is your native one and you
    didn’t reconfigure its original settings I have to assume that the font you use
    is broken. Did you check this by using another font?
    Menu Settings->Style Configurator.
    Which OS and plugins are you using? (can be found in menu ?->DebugInfo)

    Cheers
