Just out of curiosity, which font are you using in this project @andreas-eet ?

It seems that’s the problem - we used Calibri and not the KiCad Font.


This makes sense as Calibri (and others) are Microsoft owned fonts. I added some replacements to our KiCad version for popular fonts. Please reupload your project to see whether this solves the issue.
