Problem with Amasis font and diacritic

I'm reading a book called 1Q84 on my HD, and when using the Amasis font 1 particular letter always shows as very, very small.

For example, in the word Janáček, when using Amasis the c is very tiny. All other fonts show it correctly. Any ideas?

Also, when I set the font on this book to "Document Default", all serifs for letters on the bottom row of text are cut off, and appear in the top row of the next page. Again, only "Document Default" font is affected, all other fonts don't exhibit this problem.

At a guess, you are reading a .kepub.epub book. The renderer used with those will substitute a character from another font if the current font lacks the correct glyph. Unfortunately, the size of the substituted glyph does not seem to match the font size selected by the slider.

You might want to try adding a font to your Aura that has a better selection of glyphs (either Charis SIL or Deja VU Serif work well for me) and check if your Aura displays the characters properly.

Regards,
David
