SAP HANA Database Explorer - Font 72 > Chinese characters

52 Views Last edit Jan 15, 2021 at 03:39 PM 4 rev


Our company uses Chrome as default browser, but unfortunately the Database Explorer (*DE) shows always Chinese characters instead of the correct font 72, but only for a part of the word. Firefox doesn't have this problem.

Delete font "72" from font-family:

Removes Chinese chars..

Using Hana Cockpit I didn't have this problems.

Font 72 is installed (C:\Windows\Fonts), can be used in Word and also if I export this files as html, Chrome shows correctly the word in font 72.

If I open the *DE and take a look into the source code, I see "Font-family: "72",Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;". If I delete "72", so Arial will be used, Chinese chars are gone.

Font 72 is a font by SAP and comes probably with the GUI installation (or Windows installation?).

I don't know what's the problem, font 72 or Chrome, or the Database Explorer?

- Cockpit version 12p16

- Client: Windows 10

- GUI: 760P9

- Chrome: 87.0.4280.141

Any ideas?

Thanks for any advice!

Best Regards,
