Why did this happen with Hindi fonts?

This problem happens due to Hindi Unicode characters.  Now, the question arises that what is Unicode? So, Unicode is the standard universal character encoding system. It defines how we can represent each character in all types of files like text files, documents, and word files. 

Each computer comes with the pre-built English Unicode character because English is an international language. So that we can type and copy-paste English on every computer.  When we talk about Hindi Unicode characters it doesn’t come with the pre-built in every computer because Hindi is not an international language but it’s India’s national language. So, we have to set up it first and we will do that in this article.

 When you will copy any regional language in your clipboard which has not a standard Unicode character, it misses some Unicode character and you will get a garbage thing when you paste it. So, we don’t have to do a direct copy in the clipboard but we will copy it a different way. 

If you want to know how you can do that then go through step by step guide which is given in the solution part. Remember that don’t miss any step in the solution part otherwise you will fail to do it. 

Here, you can check Unicode for a particular Hindi letter.
