Additional information

I don’t know if will change anything, but you could try a few different fonts (Settings > Appearance > Font → Text font) to see if anything is different.

Thanks! That actually was the problem.

On my setup the default font seemed to be Arial which caused the problem.

Not sure if this persists on different setups.
