Learn Chinese in China

Character typed in IMEI shows different when confirmed

Recommended Posts


I have found two characters now that when I type them on the chinese keyboard they show up correctly, but then when I press the number to select them, they show up incorrectly in the text.


This seems to be only the case in certain applications, like notepad++ because when I try to copy and paste them into this text field here, they are correct.

This is what it looks like in the editor
