I really appreciate it if someone can help me fix this. I had this problem for a long time.
It's a problem with display in the small black window (i don't know what it's called). Whenever some notifications are displayed, the characters are shifted for several characters in the alphabetical/ASCII order
. For example, the "done compiling" notice
Binary sketch size: 7,020 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum)
would look like
?fk^ov phbq`e pfwb7 4)-/- ...and so on
I typed the garbled characters above (and I attached a screenshot) because if I copy and paste it elsewhere, it will look all fine again
. But it's causing a lot of trouble especially when I'm using the serial monitor window.It could be something related with the fonts in my Java Runtime Environment
. I vaguely recall that once in another software I encountered similar problem and I solved it by changing the font. But here I don't know how I could change the font in that small black window.
I'm using Windows 7 home basic.
Could anybody give any suggestions? Thank you very much.
