Could someone who knows more about the inner workings of TeXniscope
and its font rendering mechanism
explain what's going on ? It seems that TeXniscope cannot render
certain fonts (see console message
about missing glyphs) and uses some other font instead. This other
font then was activated somehow
and then is used systemwide by other pdf viewers such as Preview. So
if TeXniscope could find
what it needs, the problem would be solved.
