Japanese encoding?


Hello, I have recently started using Atom and I have some files containing Japanese Kanji and hiragana, however they won’t display correctly. The file type is UTF-8, Atom is set to be UTF-8, and the characters are displayed correctly in Sublime and Gedit.

What could be causing this?


I have same problem :frowning:


Yeh me too! Did anyone get any answer to this?


Most likely the font you’re using doesn’t have Japanese glyphs. Try switching the font to a Japanese one.


I don’t think it’s a font issue, it would seem it’s an issue with the latest version in Ubuntu. I raised this issue in Github - https://github.com/atom/atom/issues/7899
