# Getting some f-boxes with xeCJK for Japanese

Been using \usepackage{xeCJK} to add Japanese to my document. Some characters will sometimes not appear correctly but instead show a box with an F inside.

I've managed to work around most of these (eg. -- for katakana long vowel symbols) but it's starting to get really annoying as some not uncommon characters 乗　査　観　発　are outputting incorrectly.

Anyone know a fix? My document has English and Japanese, so I found xeCJK to be very useful for that purpose.

Thanks!

\usepackage{xeCJK}
\begin{document}

\end{document}


• The default FandolSong font has no glyph for U+67FB; use another font which provides all the glyphs you need. Jul 11 '17 at 7:30

## 1 Answer

The default font (FandolSong on my system) has no glyph for U+67FB, so the “F-box” appears.

Choose a font which provides all the glyphs you need. For instance, my system has YuMincho and this is what I get:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{xeCJK}

\setCJKmainfont{YuMincho}

\begin{document}

\end{document}


• What should I do if I get this error? ! fontspec error: "font-not-found" ! ! The font "YuMincho" cannot be found. Jul 11 '17 at 10:20
• @VincentMQ I just showed an example with a font I have on my system. I can't know which ones you have. Jul 11 '17 at 10:23
• Woops, assumed I had that font but it was actually Yu Gotchic. Thanks! Jul 11 '17 at 22:53
