Font for representing Unicode nonâ€printable characters
I need a good font for representing control characters. And it seems one is installed on my system and that my keyboard layout creator software use it as itâ€™s default installed font (I have thousands of fonts installed so itâ€™s difficult to find a particular one)..
The various font services I tried identifies characters inside the symbols. And I couldnâ€™t found one which is able to select the whole symbols.
I tried to look at opened files by the process. I searched for an alternative, but I coulnâ€™t found one which is able to represent special spaces as well as Ê€ÊŸá´ characters or the á´¢á´¡á´Š (of course I also need to represent all of the characters on the image).
I know for things like the The Unicode Last Resort Font or The Unicode BMP Fallback font but I need a descriptive way to represent them (not simply use numbers) for each of them. Also it seems they donâ€™t exist in the É¢É´á´œ unifont.
Note that it can be an another font which would allow to display those characters, it doesn't have to be the font of this picture. Also I tried to run the software on a very old windowsÂ® version and the chars didnâ€™t appeared, So the font is present on every windows but I donâ€™t know which one is it.
While searching for something entirely different in the Arial MS Unicode glyph set in Adobe InDesign, I came across this section:
This shows that there is a dedicated set of Unicode Code points for the control characters, and indeed looking it up on Unicode.org you can find them in code block
This gives you a Unicode code point to look for in a font's list of supported glyphs. FileFormat.info lists, amongst others: Arial Unicode MS, Code2000, and Segoe UI Symbol. Unfortunately, none of the fonts listed have the dotted outline of your example.
If you don't mind using Flash, it seems FileFormat can check your local font set, and so determine if the symbols indeed do come ready and all out of one of your locally installed fonts, or possibly from somewhere else.
