Some problems happen on apps or user interfaces when applying Chinese fonts

As technology evolves, font technology does, too. However, hardware, software, and apps change much faster than fonts. Font foundries are facing a lot of challenges to make fonts compatible in various applications. Here are some problems we noticed: the compatibility of fonts and symbols; used on cross-script apps; how to determine default line spacing of apps; what influences might come from the default setting of Chinese font height; and what advice might arise for the design of UI text layout.
