MacOS: GPS Degrees Do Not Show When Printing

Post by rgbr » Thu Jun 16, 2016 8:53 pm

Hi, XnViewMP is a great program that we started using a lot today. However, we notice that the degrees sign (º) does not show correctly when printing. Is there a way to fix this? Please see the attached screen grab.

Thanks!

It's the font issue. Change your font to one that supports that symbol.

You can use BabelMap. Download link: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/babelmap.html. Their website seems to be down, so choose "Download@MajorGeeks". It's a free, fast, "onefiled" portable and open source app. Run it, enter menu Font, then Font coverage, select either:
  • first box (code point), enter 00B0
  • second box (all characters in text), turn on num keyboard, press left alt and while holding it, enter 0170, then release alt - it's how one gets degree symbol in Windows
Then press Calculate Font Coverage. You'll get the list of fonts with such symbol.

No problem! I'm glad it helped and sorry for assuming you are on Windows :)
