I have experienced this issue time and time again. Linux and Window$, for
example, have different font sets and even the default font which is
Helvetica, IIRC, does not keep its uniformity across platforms... and not
only that... different Linux distros with different fonts result in
My advice: choose fonts that are common to many platforms and allocate
enough space for text in your buttons, sliders, etc.
PS - Pictures with tooltips always work well.
