In some text views on OS X, e.g. in the application QQ, the character →(U+2192) is displayed differently after a Chinese character or Latin character:

right arow

Also affected are the other arrows, and the box ■(U+25A0):


How is it so?

  • QQ is a chat/messenger app. Its text capability are limited. Use double space to try.
