Problem: I use Unicode characters in my zone and/or variable names, but they don’t display correctly. How do I fix this?
Solution: Tecplot 360/Focus’ default font on Linux and UNIX platforms isn’t Unicode-based so it won’t show any Unicode characters in the interface. To fix this, do the following:
Locate the Tecplot### file found in the installation directory under “app-defaults” within the Tecplot 360/Focus installation directory (the ### number varies based on the product version).
Open the file in a text editor.
Search for the text *Tecplot*fontList and place a ! at the beginning of the line to comment it out.
On a new line, paste the following code into the file:
Save the file. Next time you open Tecplot, the Unicode font will be used.
Note that the above change is not required to see Unicode fonts in the drawing area (e.g., in the plot title and plot legend).
