What are these boxes?!

Boxes mean the current font does not have a glyph for a given character. Some fonts have many characters defined, some have just a few. Though not all fonts assign glyphs to every character, copy and pasting boxes will transfer the correct character data. Try selecting a different font from the Options menu or loading a True-Type font from your SD card. The font with the best coverage of the unicode basic multilingual plane is unifont, available at HappyChar now provides the option to skip and not display these characters when browsing.


Clicking a character will append it to the clipboard sandbox at the bottom of the screen. Copy the sandbox to the clipboard by clicking the clipboard icon.

Long clicking a character will launch the character inspector which shows the byte order breakdown for the character in different unicode encodings.

Mark favorites by clicking the happy face in the character inspector. View your favorites by pressing MENU->Favorites.

View phrases by pressing MENU->Phrases. Enter new phrases by pressing the green Add button at the top of the screen. Phrases can be copied, edited, or deleted by pressing the utility buttons in each list item.

Click the top bar in between the left and right arrows to show the section list and jump to the any section of the unicode basic multilingual plane.

Any True-Type font may be loaded into HappyChar. Select Font from the MENU->Options page, and select "Scan SD Card" from the list to initiate a search for True-Type fonts in the SD Card. Fonts may be placed anywhere on the sd-card. To cancel the search press the BACK button.
