If the OP is using RStudio and not using R  (i.e. pdf()) directly, it
sounds like this query should be directed to RStudio support, not
here.


Two things:

First, to Lily: "‰" is the "per mil" symbol, not percent; it's not an ASCII symbol, which is why there are issues displaying it. If you really mean percent, use "%" and you likely won't have problems.

And to confirm what Bert said: this does work in R even if you use dev.copy() to copy from the regular R graphics device to pdf, but not from the RStudioGD to pdf. So this really is an RStudio bug.

In the lower right panel of R-studio interface, there is the "Export" button. I 
saved as PDF from there directly, rather than using functions

I am using the plot() function, but have a problem. When saving as pdf
format, the ‰ sign in the x-axis label becomes (...) sign. I prefer to save
in pdf, as this format has a higher resolution than jpeg or other picture
formats. Could anyone tell me how to do then? Thanks.

Please, share minimal example. which function do you use to save the plot as 
pdf? ‘pdf' or ‘cairo_pdf’ or something else?

I used the code below, and used export button to save as pdf. It saves as 
expected. Please, minimize your code as below and share. So I can try on my 
machine.

plot(0, xlab = "Percent (‰)", ylab = "Another Percent (‰)”)
