Bear v1 font vs v2

Hey folks,

There is a breaking font in v2 with Greek language:

As can be seen in the attached image.

  1. What was the font used in Bear v1? Could I use this instead?
  2. Will the BearSans support greek characters?

Also when I change the font in the editor, I can see the sidebar still keeps the default font:

The second question (sidebar font intact) is by design I believe - you can change only text format of actual notes (in current implementation in preferences), not of UI.

The first question: original font was AvenirNext if I am not mistaken. Can you choose it in Settings? (or try some other font which might be ok?)

@daneb1 Yes I changed it, but the sidepanel will still be broken (image 2) :smiling_face_with_tear:

Is there any plan to support Greek characters to the font?

Can you please tell me more about how the font is broken?

Sure @trix180 !

Try writing Καλησπέρα which means “good evening” and you will notice the letter π is breaking visually in contrast to the other letters.

I suspect the π is being presented as a symbol NOT as the character in the greek font being used.

@chrisecurtis @trix180 the symbols that I found are not rendered as expected are:

μ π Ω

The whole alphabet I tested:

Α α, Β β, Γ γ, Δ δ, Ε ε, Ζ ζ, Η η, Θ θ, Ι ι, Κ κ, Λ λ, Μ μ, Ν ν, Ξ ξ, Ο ο, Π π, Ρ ρ, Σ σ/ς, Τ τ, Υ υ, Φ φ, Χ χ, Ψ ψ, Ω ω

Καλημέρα Καλησπέρα Καληνύχτα Ωραία

And the result can be seen here:
