I read a text file with createReader() and then displayed the contents in a window with text(). The text displayed properly except that single and double quote marks displayed as boxes. Is there is simple way to fix this?
Are you using some special font? Does the text file use UTF-8 encoding?
I created the text file with Microsoft Word and saved it as a plain text file with a txt extension. The font was Calibri (Word’s default on my computer). Here’s the code I used to read the file and display it in a window:
When I ran the code, both single quotes and double quotes showed up as boxes in the window.
Maybe Word is doing something weird with the encoding. Try copy-paste your text from the Word document into this online text editor:
Cllick the “Download & Save” button when you’re done. Try that version of the file with your sketch.
You were right. It was a Word problem. When I created and saved a textfile using Notepad, the quotes displayed properly. Thanks for your help.
Yeah, like my iPhone Word replaces normal " with “ which look more beautiful but have another ascii/utf code.
