    Hi,

    This is a font issue. To export special characters, you will need to add a font that contains these characters just like the ipaexg font. Also, it seems that these characters are only present in MacOS and not in windows.
    Can you please check what is the default font set at your end? If your font can display these characters, then we can add them to the PDF and the pdf will also be able to display these.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    I'm using Windows 10.
    In Notepad++,
    if use Meiryo font, special characters can display correctly.

    See image below.

    Hi,

    I tried to export PDF with the Meiryo font. In the exported PDF, the trademark symbol was displayed properly but other characters (left arrows) were not. I also tested it on excel and all the characters are displayed properly.
    So, I have forwarded this to the developers for further investigation. The internal tracking id of the case is 469629. I will update you once I will hear from them.
