Hi Johannes,

Google doesn’t always include fonts that support an exhaustive list of characters. But it provides the option to load more characters if the user needs them. This is done via subsets. You can read more about this here:

  1. http://academe.co.uk/2013/09/google-web-fonts-api-categories-and-subsets/
  2. https://developers.google.com/fonts/docs/getting_started#Subsets

You can tell Microthemer to load a subset by pasting in an URL parameter via the field you discovered in the preferences e.g.

&subset=latin,latin-ext

Does that help answer your question?

Cheers,
Sebastian
