See screenshot attached. It's not exactly a technical bug, but still not a good situation. Some compatible font is to be used and/or ordered from wherever the Latin script was ordered from.

Same feeling here.But I think this question is nearly a duplicate: https://together.jolla.com/question/21203/russian-font-size-is-bigger-than-english/

It isn't just a matter of font size. There's a difference in font thickness too. ...and it is a completely different font (very similar to Helvetica). Compare the C-shaped characters. Does anyone know what fonts Jolla uses? I would really want to know.

I totally agree. The difference is really annoying.
