Default serif font no longer renders Unicode characters correctly
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT


When using Serif fonts, and reading articles with Unicode characters, they are now rendered as empty boxes:

It seems as if the default serif font selection used by the WebView is some kind of incomplete font, instead of the correct Android font (Noto).

Event Timeline

for QA:

  • Load the article Cat, and set your font selection to serif (in our Theme dialog)
  • Change the article language to Polish
  • Make sure that none of the characters are rendered as blank boxes (similar to the screenshot above).
