Please tell me how to display IPA characters properly with a monospace font



  • 7.5.9 portable in Japanese with “Noto Mono” font

    First, create txt in UTF-8, write , then write d. Completely broken
    Another example, write , then put ideographic space. And this time it’s not broken
    What’s happen? What’s wrong in the former one?

    Basically notepad++ cannot display most of Phonetic characters constantly properly on my PC. What’s wrong? Is encoding of notepad++ completely sucks? Or is my setting wrong?



  • Hello, @tokiedian-steelpanthers,

    Your default Noto Mono font does not reproduce the glyphs of the Unicode IPA Extensions block characters, below :

    http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0250.pdf

    Here are, below, a table with a summary of some monospaced fonts, which represent all IPA extensions characters, properly

    For the record, you may, also, refer to :

    • The two MS Mincho and MS Gothic fonts, which can handle the Japanese Hiragana and Katakata characters

    • The proportional  fonts Lucida Sans Unicode and Microsoft Sans Serif, which both support the IPA Extensions characters, too
