First, a huge thank you for this amazing node. It does almost everything and then some. But, is there a trick to write text on an image when the text is Unicode UTF-8? For example this. 北京
I want to make image1 with Chinese characters, then merge it with a QR code (image2) so the result is image3 with the QR in the center. The excellent example how to merge images provided in a different thread did this amazingly well except the Unicode problem.
I can get text on an image but I only get ???? when using Chinese characters. For example the string "A北京 B" will be written on the image as A??B Is there a trick around this? I do get Chinese characters encoded in the QR code data, that part works great. It is "just" text on image I fail to understand.
Hopefully this is a "me" problem and there is a super duper easy way to make this happen. Any ideas or tips?
