What font would SmartSDR DSTAR Waveform prefer?

On many text messages from my SmartSDR DSTAR Waveform I seem to get odd characters (a diamond with a question mark in the middle often appears).

Is this just noise with my setup, or does the app prefer another font to be loaded into the computer to minimize this???

Also, do other people find their ThumbDV derived DStar voice reception to be even more "R2-D2" than on Icom radios????

My experience with DSTAR on HF is the FLEX radio has LESS r2d2 on decode than the 9100 or 7100.

I would like a little MORE r2D2 on the FLEX. Right now, it is acting like the squelch is set too tight.

Yes! I have that problem, unless I get an s8+ signal it won't decode DSTAR on HF.
