I am not sure if I understand your question, but it looks like you need to increase the right side-bearing of the No. 5 glyph.

There must be more to it. There are two instances of the numeral 5 in the screenshot, but only the one at the end of the line is cut off.

Is this problem anything at all to do with FontCreator or about installing fonts on Android tablets?

Did you create the fonts in FontCreator? If so, which version are you using?

I'm not sure if this is a font or layout problem. Does this happen with all fonts, or only one specific font?

Did you make, download, or buy the font?

In case you made it, what software did you use?

In case you bought it, ask the font vendor for a solution.

Either way let us know your results!

FontCreator can be used to fix most font problems, provided the Font's license allows them to be edited. Many issues are fixed automatically, on opening a defective font in FontCreator.

I suggest contacting the person who gave you the font and ask them to fix it. Or, you could download FontCreator and try to fix it yourself, but you will need to register the product to export the font.

The Home Edition will do if the font is for private use. If it's for commercial use you will need the Standard or Professional Edition.

Roboto is the system font on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). You can read about it on this page, which also includes a download link: https://developer.android.com/design/st ... raphy.html

I'm not interested. Maybe someone else will offer to do it for you.

How much are you willing to pay? Does the MUI font come with a license that allows it to be modified?

Fonts are protected by Copyright. Any font can be edited, but it is not advisable to edit and distribute fonts that are protected by copyright.

There are plenty of OpenSource fonts out there — if you're going to the trouble and expense of customising a font for whatever purpose, make sure you start with one that permits derivatives, and read the terms of the license agreement.

You said that the problem shows up in Roboto Bold. :?

MUIU seems to be a Chinese customized version of the Android OS. As such, I think you should be prepared to accept non-standard behaviour.

There is a MIUI fonts collection here.
