Unicode font containing all signs - does it exist?

Post by SS##66 »

Every now and then when doing some graphic related stuff I run into counterproductive annoying issue of using a font which does not have some unusual / rare Unicode signs like

Code: Select all

▲◗ ● █
The simplest way to cope with that would be to have on my operating system a font named like Unicode version XXX - which, in its latest version, would contain all of Unicode signs [up to date of its release]. This way I would always know to which font I need to switch in order to see any unusual sign - thus stop having to cycle through dozens of fonts which I already have installed on my system in hopes of finding one containing a sign that I lack

So my question is: does such all-signs-in-one-font even exists? Glancing through official Unicode site I found no option of downloading of any font and I especially do not not see it here: https://www.unicode.org/faq/

Catrinity is also a good option

Code2000 always looked kinda ugly to me, I think if the standard English alphabet looks bad, then the foreign language characters are probably even worse.
