Following characters are contained in Courier New font:

┌ ┐ ─ ┤ ├ ┘ └

Unfortunately after I type these characters into WordPad in Windows 8, their font is Segoe UI Symbol and it can't be changed into any other.

There are no problems with these characters in older versions of Windows.

Do you have any idea, how to show these characters in Courier New in WordPad?

Thank you for any suggestions.
