I have this odd issue that I've been having for years now since Windows 8 (I'm now on Windows 10, if I remember right. The problem only seems to be on my work computer. My other personal computers don't seem to have a problem. I didn't think about asking for help at first because I found a workaround - which I'll explain later - but I think enough is enough.
Basically, whenever I copy and paste Unicode text (Japanese, Arabic, etc.) they appear as question marks on paste. Here's an example Japanese text that I'll copy:
And here's what it looks like after pasting:
Interestingly, if I copy the exact same text again for at least one more time, it will paste properly...
Removing even a single character from the selection before copy will cause the issue to "reset".
This was my workaround. It's not too difficult to do but I tend to always forget to do it because my other PCs work fine. This adds more steps and wastes precious seconds.
The problem is system-wide and affects all the programs and apps I use.
Any idea how to fix this permanently? Any help will be highly appreciated.
