    Hi,

    You need to register fonts for exporting Chinese and Japanese strings. Please refer to the demo link below that demonstrates how to add custom fonts and export Japanese characters:

    I think the ipaexg font is not working property with Chinese. You can try using the ZCoolXiaoWei font for Chinese characters.

    Please refer to the updated sample attached.

    Note that this font only works with Chinese characters and not Japanese characters.
