Print@"~" prints a dash. Is this intended behavior? Do you think it is a bug? I'm running 10.0 for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) (June 29, 2014).

Edit: a screen grab at 125% mag to illustrate: enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Ha, I'm guessing your Magnification isn't 100%, am I right? Is this the same issue: 31874801#31874801? $\endgroup$ – Kuba Dec 6 '16 at 14:33
  • $\begingroup$ No problem with 11.0.1 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) $\endgroup$ – Bob Hanlon Dec 6 '16 at 14:39
  • $\begingroup$ This is certainly a Windows font rendering or hinting issue, not a Mathematica one. Try other font sizes or other fonts. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Dec 6 '16 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ The issue occurs with 10.1/windows only if I set the magnification other than 100% . 50,75,125 yield "-" and 100,200,300 yield "~". $\endgroup$ – george2079 Dec 6 '16 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ see the issue like this too: (normal mag) Style["~", FontFamily -> "Courier New", FontSize -> #] & /@ {13, 14, 15, 16, 17} $\endgroup$ – george2079 Dec 6 '16 at 15:21
