Mathematica overrides special font characters

Posted 8 years ago


when designing an user interface I came up on one issue with special icon fonts such as FontAwesome.

I use the vector icons from font awesome to construct a convenient user interface by using well known icons for copy&paste etc. However, some of the FontAwesome icons are placed at the same address in font framework as Mathematica special characters. Mathematica overrides those place even if you specify an exact font by FontFamily option (see code below). Is there a way to turn off those special Mathematica characters in frontend?

Style[FromCharacterCode[Range[61500, 62300], "Unicode"], 
 FontFamily -> "FontAwesome"]
