Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with

messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Consider the following:
type App() =
let stack = StackLayout(VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center)
let label = Label(HorizontalTextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center, Text = "Welcome to F# Xamarin.Forms!")
let button = Button(Text = "\u2907 should be =>")
base.MainPage <- ContentPage(Content = stack)
What I expect: App has a button that has a label that says "⤇ should be =>".
What I get instead: App with a button that has a label that says "? should be =>" (the ? is a box with a question mark in it)
Can this be added to next release? It is blocking for me.
I don't think this is an XF issue. This is probably because your font does not support that special character.
iOS uses SanFranciscoUIDisplay and SanFrancisoText. Android uses Roboto.
You could try using a custom font to see if the issue is fixed.
Yea, seems like a font issue. Using arrows from the U+2190-U+21FF block (specifically U+2192 and U+21D2) works as expected with XF deploying to iOS, for example. Also various other codepoints (U+0092 for example) with good font coverage works as expected.
I'm trying to use Unicode characters in a XF Button running under UWP.
I tried `U+E105` and `u\E105`, both of them display literally ("U+105" or "u\105" respectively).
Am I missing something?
