Unicode Font is not supporting in SambaPOS

Hello Team,

One of my friend sits in Myanmar and he is running a restaurant called Sharky

He would like to use SambaPOS and ask me to setup

But when i type the name of the menu as a Unicode in Burmese. It is not saving properly there and retrieve it.

Is there any other settings i have to do ?

Experts, please share your views.


If you type it in notepad does it work?

When you type it where? In the Product section? The Menu section? The search bar?

Remember, alterations to Menu (not Products) require you to log out and log in to refresh the cache before changes are shown.

Yes @QMcKay

I have done that


It is not working notepad but it is a unicode font, it works in Ms Word

I was trying to ensure the font was actually on the computer. I am not sure then. He may have reserved that I know we used unicode for some custom keyboard stuff in past.

How are you inserting it? Are you using a custom keyboard layout or are you using codes?

The font looks like the above one

You can try to insert this. I am trying to insert it from the Ms Word

So it looks like its that specific character.

If it is planned, we need to ask @emre that these language does not have ISO Code, we need to Custom Culture for it.
