So in goofing around with matrices, I tried to do \cdot<tab> in the REPL and expected the dot-symbol that can be used to compute the inner product. Instead, I got a question-mark in a box. It computes correctly, and when I copy it, I paste the correct dot-symbol. Does anyone have any ideas about what the problem might be? I’ll include the output from versioninfo() just in case it helps:
Julia Version 1.5.0
Commit 96786e22cc (2020-08-01 23:44 UTC)
OS: Windows (x86_64-w64-mingw32)

The Windows console has terrible Unicode support; even if you switch to a font that has more Unicode character, the lack of fallback-font support means that you will still encounter missing characters. Install a better terminal.
So I have now downloaded the terminal app from the microsoft app-store, and I have installed Julia 1.5.1. When I open the julia REPL however, it still opens in the old terminal. Searching google for how to change my default terminal did not help me.
I know that this is more an IT-support thing than it is a Julia-thing, but could you tell me how to run julia through the new terminal application, and preferably how to make it the default? If not, any pointer to a helpful resource is also greatly appreciated.
