Whether I choose "Download as PDF" or I choose "Print" and "Save as PDF" Google Sheets messes up the formatting on the PDF it generates
Here's what it's supposed to look like and what it looks like in the browser before exporting.
And here was what it exports
If it's not clear it has separated every accent
Note: this appears to be a problem with the way the characters are entered. There are at least 2 ways
- A single character that contains the accent
As 2 characters. The character without the accent and then the accent.
If you copy the text above, paste it somewhere and press delete you'll see it goes
基づき 基づ 基つ 基
Where as this text 基づき will go
基づき 基づ 基
Still, in order to be useful in Japanese it needs to export the first format correctly which it's not doing now.
As a test I put the same code in TextEdit on MacOS, used the delete test to check it was the first version, exported that to PDF and the result was correct.
NOTE: (actually you'll have to edit this message to get the 4 character version of the text above. In the editor pressing delete requires 4 presses where as if you copy and paste from the non-editor version you get the 3 character version)
