The Unicode issue does not show up in the Text form, however I am trying to use Word, but the formatting is not converting.
First one is Text second is Word.
I don't think we have a way to do that. PSPP support for graphs is not very flexible.

Question, do you know how to change the font size on this legend “Diabetes_Enc”
I need it to fit the box
Hopefully the upgrade helps too.
Not to keep probing, but just one last question…since I will need to ultimately copy and paste onto Word document, is it better to save in HTML, text, or PDF when exporting?
Exporting output to text or to HTML formats shouldn't show this issue, but there's no way to disable it in the output window.

Is there something I can deploy in the syntax editor I am using?
Well, the underlying problem is one with fonts or font rendering. PSPP inserts a special character to prevent word-wrapping after decimal points in some cases. This character should be invisible. On some machines, for unknown reasons, it instead renders as a box. I haven't heard recent reports of this, so I've assumed that it was fixed by newer font rendering libraries.
There's a little more information about the problem that this character solves in the commit that introduced it: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/pspp.git/commit/src/output?id=03e0b6914b3c725fe57ba27c7a49a4549c0ff1e8

Thank you and I have notified our admin and they plan on upgrading this evening.
Although I am wondering what would be the issue, just in case the upgrade does not solve it and if it has something to do with my computer?
PSPP 1.4.1 is very old. This problem is likely fixed in the newest releases.

I typed in that command and it showed error, but I checked the “About” and it showed “GNU pspp 1.4.1-g79ad47”
Someone suggested these below, but I am not really familiar with the function syntax. The syntax was taken from the GNU instruction Plain Text Output Options (PSPP) (gnu.org).
What version and OS is this? What does "SHOW SYSTEM." report?

Thank you for your response. I am trying to get rid of these characters—box with circles.
I tried UTF-8 and ASCII, but I am accessing the software remotely due to security reasons for our hospital and the application is stored in an external server.
Can you say more about the issue? Are you responding to some message from PSPP? Can you provide the message?

I was informed that I need to change my output to ASCII for normal characters.
I tried many ways in the command line, but I was not successful
Can someone help me?
