I really like the new look with the updated GUI elements and with a

Display Unicode symbols broken

I wanted to choose a font from the platform

    Cmd-K (Alt-K) and go to the (equally new) "More (non-portable)

  16r411 asCharacter

is displayed as a box as well. It should be the Cyrillic capital letter Be
