Abnormal size in letters with diacritics?

by otakusempai / May 18, 2011 2:34 AM PDT

How come, in some fonts, letters with diacritics are larger than the
rest, even though the same size is selected for all? How can I fix this?

Clarification Request
Haven't personally noticed this ...

so could you possibly give us a few examples you have the problem with? Would need font size, face, and weight you are using for each font.

The example is clear. But we still lack the information to be able to reproduce it (which is necessary first step):
- what font (face)
- what font size
- what font weight
- what program (MS Word, Wordpad, OO Writer)?
- what OS?

May I add one more thing?

Since Windows uses the printer to render on-screen display of such things, the printer make, model, version driver, Windows OS as well as video display settings can have an effect.

I had this one system where they complained of screen rendering at 640x480. It was hard for me to tell them "yup, it will look a little ugly."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
