Just for your information: The Windows Character Map tool

may show characters, even if they are not part of the font!

Therefore it could always happen that you try to copy and paste

a certain character although it is not part of your font!

Alternatives are.

BabelMap, free and not very user-friendly. No installation necessary.

You can start the exe which you download.


PopChars, often recommended, not free (30 Euros)


Best regards


Furthermore, the FM Edit>Utilities>Character Palette also shows characters that do not exist in the font selected. FM will silently substitute a different font if you insert one of those characters using the utility. Very annoying.

I use BabelMap; once you get used to it, it's not /too /hard to use.
