How does one use non-latin characters in text? (SOLVED)


I was curious about how non-latin characters and some special characters can be used in GUI texts in defold. And also, is unicode supported?

Yes and yes!

Check out the manual: Fonts in Defold manual


Some characters still can’t be printed. They keep getting replaced with “~” even though the font supports those characters.

Please give examples of the characters and fonts you are using.

Do you click to enable using all characters in the .font / list those characters in the extra characters field?

My bad. Thanks

Is the possible to support Chinese/Japanese characters input (InputField) in Deford in future?

Mobile games will use the native OS keyboard which supports any language you have installed on the device.
