Kivy only support ANSI charset.

Kivy member

Nop, it support others charset if the font is provided. This is definitively a bug.


Tested kivy\uix\ example with win 7 x64 and latest development version. Works fine.

Kivy member

can't reproduce on latest kivy (windows 8.1, ubuntu 13.10, 64b on both), issue was raised when 1.5.0 was the stable version, can't build this one because of cython incompatibility, so i'll close it, please reopen if you still encounter it.
