As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.
Agree. After installing Chinese language package, I cannot change (permanently) font of bash console anymore....

Thought you’d like to know that we’ve just released Windows Console support for CTRL + SHIFT + [C|V] copy/paste support for Bash.
It’s in current skip-ahead insiders builds, but will be available to mainline Insiders once we switch branches after 18H1 ships “soon” :)
