hi , I want to ask why font of miui rom in miui devices are different from miui rom in other devices like galaxy s 3 or note 2, I tried several rom from your site to miui official site and others but the font is different. look at this pic. to show the default font in miui rom in note 2


and this one in miui rom for note 2 BUT AFTER MODIFY THE MIUI-REGULAR.TTF font to be like the miui device like Mi3

Iwant to ask why ?

Because MIUI original font doesn't support international characters so we replace it by original Android 4.3 font.

And please leave like this, the actual font is much better than original one imho, or switch to Roboto Condensed :)

Well I'm using Roboto condensed 4.4 in my miuipolska rom for MI3. For Xiaomi.eu we have 4.3 for now.
