Ditto this question, though my tiny problem is more specific.

I got into the habit of using Apple Li Gothic for my main font in MAX objects, as I found it both attractive and easy to read… and I started naming values and subpatchers with Chinese characters (option-keystroke combinations), just to be kinda smart-alecky and ‘cuz I thought they looked cool.

When I open my patches in Max 5, all these Chinese characters have disappeared, replaced in many instances by those empty squares indicating unused ASCII..

Is there something I can reset in the preferences to make Max use them?

This is obviously a very trivial problem, except that I’m going to have to rename a lot of objects.

Type "unicode" into a search box and poke around a little. Perhaps you will find some elucidation.
