Hello, 
I have really benefitted from using Mnemosyne to learn French.  Thanks!
I am now starting to work on Simplified Chinese characters, and I notice that the software will change the appearance of characters after I input them (see attachments). 
1) Is there a recommended font for Simplified Chinese to reduce this distortion?
2) Is it possible to have more than one font set up in the configuration settings?  I am currently using Arial 22 which is perfect for French.
Thanks!

Hi,

If you want to keep the appearance the same as the website you copy them from, you should try to figure out what font they use :-) I'm personally happy with Arial.

You can use different fonts for different languages, just create a separate card type for each language.

Cheers,

Peter
