Serious issue with TextEditor: TextEditor and non-roman characters

Are there any plans to make this work?

Even the JUCE demo doesn’t support japanese text entry.

Open the properties editor demo app on the Mac for example, and paste わたし into it. You get garbage.

For our japanese translations, we always install another font along with our plugins. It may just be a font issue.

It just ignores the whole fallback font thing. We could fix it by swapping the font entirely I guess, but I can’t help feeling it shoudl just use the OS fallback fonts properly so it can display any language without the user having to install/select a specific langauge support.

TextLayout FTW !

Yes - but TextEditor doesn’t use it :slight_smile:

@ed95 Can we get some feedback from team JUCE on this?

It’s been an issue since 2008 … maybe?
