Can't show this character correctly --> 〜



  • This one —> 〜
    Not this one —> ~ (It’s above Tab key on the keyboard)
    I don’t know how to call this in english (・ˍ・)
    Maybe back wave line?
    I’v tried 2 different charset utf-8 and ANSI but it all shows as a box like 口.
    However, I can copy it from NPP to another place correctly

    Notepad++ v7.4.2   (64-bit)
    Build time : Jun 18 2017 - 23:38:43
    Path : D:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : ON
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS : Windows 10 (64-bit)
    Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll 
    OS Language : Chinese Simplified & Japanese (each Windows has english right?)
    

    That’s all
    Sorry for my english if it troubles you (⊙ˍ⊙)



  • This is called a “WAVE DASH (U+301c)”. The ability to display it depends on the selected font. My NPP happily displays it with Courier New (even though this font does not have that glyph). Arial Unicode MS should definitely have it.



  • Fine.
    But mine still shows a block also I changed font many times (’へ’)



  • Hello, @brandon-chan,

    The character, that you’re looking for ( Wave Dash - \x{301c} ), is part of the Unicode block, named CJK Symbols and Punctuation, between the code-points \x3000 and \x303F and any character, of that block, can be found with the regular expression [\x{3000}-\x{303F}]. Refer to the link, below, for a complete list of that Unicode block !

    http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U3000.pdf

    Therefore, it seems obvious that some of Asiatic fonts should be able to display that character and some others, from the CJK Symbols and Punctuation Unicode block ! Refer to the link, below, for general information about Asiatic fonts :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CJK_fonts

    Some time ago, I could use the link ftp://71.18.9.15/Fonts/ for downloading the main Windows Asiatic fonts ( with version >= 5.00 ). But, unfortunately, this link seem broken, by now ?!


    If, in addition, I add the Arial Unicode MS font and the Unifont GNU font, which last version can be downloaded, from the link below :

    http://ftp.igh.cnrs.fr/pub/gnu/unifont/unifont-10.0.05/

    I obtain, on my ( old ! ) Win XP configuration, the following table :

    Beware that all the fonts, above, are monospaced fonts, except for the Arial Unicode MS font !


    All these fonts, correctly, display the Wave Dash character ( \x{301c ). Here is, below, for these 5 fonts, the list of the glyphs displayed, out of the 64 complete glyphs of the CJK Symbols and Punctuation block :
