font selection problem

Hi, I just try superedi 3.7 and find a problem about font selection:
I can't select some fonts such as Arial Unicode MS and other non-proportional fonts so that some unicode characters can't be displayed, would you please fix this problem?

Thanks for your great software - superedit 3.7 !

I am so disappointed....

SuperEdi 3.7.u supports unicode and various codepage, but can't support proportional fonts, how can I use it to display english and asian languages together? Currently, English and Asian languages (Chinese,Japanese and so on) can't be displayed together properly....

Re: font selection problem

Searching the web you can find several fixed width fonts which support unicode characters, e.g.

displaying problem also happens on fixed width fonts


Actually displaying problem also happens on fixed width fonts. When I set superedit font as a fixed width font (support chinese characters), its english characters are displayed as same width as chinese characters. In general,english character is half width of chinese character's.

When I use MS notepad and other text editor to open same document using same font, english characters can be displayed properly (half width of chinese characters).

Re: font selection problem

Unlike Notepad, SuperEdi displays all character with the same width. If you want to edit Chinese text, you should choose a font with Chinese characters and set the script to CHINESE_GB2312 (for font NSimSun) or CHINESE_BIG5 (for MingLiU). In this case SuperEdi will use double width for all characters (including Western), but otherwise the Chinese characters will be too small.
