Linux and WINE problem with Chinese characters

I tried to directly install Myinfo on my Linux Monjaro system using WINE. Everything seems to work except one important thing: It doesn't recognize Chinese characters and the fcitx Chinese input program doesn't work inside Myinfo.

Can this problem be easily fixed?

Have you tried changing the default font MyInfo uses (Tools > Options > Display)? Maybe it is related to the Chinese characters problem.

Are they not visible in the tree or in the text editor?

P.S.: I am not aware of the fcitx Chinese input program you mention, but it seems like a Linux app. Does it work with other applications installed under WINE?

Hello
I tried changing the fonts as you suggested but that didn't work. I think the problem has to do with being able to read UTF-8 characters.
