custom_block_glyphs = true

Since: Version 20210314-114017-04b7cedd

The functionality described in this section requires version 20210314-114017-04b7cedd of wezterm, or a more recent version.

When set to true (the default), WezTerm will compute its own idea of what the glyphs in the following unicode ranges should be, instead of using glyphs resolved from a font.

Ideally this option wouldn't exist, but it is present to work around a hinting issue in freetype.
