┃ character not displaying in Notepad on Windows 11

Copper Contributor

I am reporting a bug where the ┃ character is not displaying in Notepad on Windows 11. The problem exists in previous builds as well and started about a few weeks ago.


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open Notepad on Windows 11.
  2. Type the ┃ character.
  3. The character will not display.

Expected behavior:

The ┃ character should display as a vertical bar with a horizontal line through it.



The problem is reproducible on all of my Windows 11 devices.


System information:

  • Windows 11 version number: 22H2 (OS Build 22621.1848)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-13400F
  • Memory: 32 GB
  • Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070

I have tried the following to fix the problem:

  • Restarting my computer
  • Reinstalling Notepad
  • Running an SFC scan
  • Running a DISM scan

None of these solutions have worked.


I would appreciate it if you could investigate this bug and fix it in a future release of Windows 11.
