'Sounds' preference misses play and pause button symbols

Description

Seen on hrev52849 x86_gcc2:

The 'Sounds' preference application allows the user to test a sound and provides two buttons for that (placed in the bottom right corner).

Both buttons don't have a symbol indicating 'play' and 'pause' (or 'stop', I don't remember...).

Summary: [QA] 'Sounds' preference misses play and pause button symbols'Sounds' preference misses play and pause button symbols

Works here. Maybe you've set a system font that doesn't include the two UTF symbols \xE2\x96\xB6 and \xE2\x96\xA0?

There's no need to prefix a ticket with "[QA]".

Yeah, I use Verdana. But it should work with any font, really.

The '[QA]' was added in case these tickets move to KapiX's Kiwi TCMS in the future (easier to select), but okay I'll leave it out from now on.

Sounds may need to specify noto sans display for the buttons.

The default font has been changed to Noto Sans Display, as far as I know.

@Meanwhile: maybe use the "Keyword" for QA instead.

You're right, I got that entirely backwards.

The change was to Noto Sans Display, with geometric-shapes fully populated. The symbols will work out of the box.

But Haiku (like any OS of past and present) allows the user to install his/her own font of choice, so the OS shouldn't have any issue with that.

There are other ways to draw a simple black triangle (play) and a square (stop) or two vertical rectangles (pause) on top of a button.

(and Verdana can't hardly be called an exotic, obscure or troublesome font)

We are supposed to have a font fallback system to find a suitable font when the selected one is missing characters. But I guess it was not adjusted when we switched to Noto Display.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
