Problem Description
As you can see in my profile I'm from Russian Federation, so cyrillic support is very necessary for me.
But using Set Web Font action I can't take needed result. I see just some standart font (or RARE only some letters are looks like new font, but others - by default).
This app was checked by some my friends in different ways of country - one result.
Also I've checked different fonts. All checked fonts supports cyrillic char sets. I usually download them here: h-t-t-p :// ru (dot) fonts2u (dot) com

Is it a bug or you just have no support for any char sets instead of latin?
Can I dream to achieve this support in future?
If there is no and will no support for my problem I understand that the only way is to use uncomfortable in preparation and using Sprite Font?

The Text object's 'Set web font' action does not internally specify any particular character set; it simply switches the font to "Stylo Bold" and redraws the same text. Are you sure the font you have chosen actually includes cyrillic characters?

Sorry for my BUG report. Because it's really NOT A C2 BUG!!!

I've just made a very deep analysis of font files downloaded from that resource..
And I notice that there is a data damage in cyrillic symbols!!!

I will use another web-font-convert resource to achieve needed results.
Sorry for wasting your time.
