Not all fonts feature all characters. For example, Arial black does not feature the bitcoin character (₿).

Some apps, including Windows itself, try to find a replacement font. This might be a friendly strategy, but it is dangerous for BluffTitler because it could make your work look different on other systems that use other replacement fonts.

For this reason, BluffTitler does not try to find a replacement font and renders an empty space. This ensures your work looks the same on all systems and does not depend on an unknown replacement font.

The solution is simple: use a font that features the characters you need. This screenshot use the Segoe UI Black font rendering the text ₿luff₮itler.
