I have been using Adobe Reader XI with Wine (Playonlinux) without much problems. But serious problems arise when I use comment tools such as sticky notes. Please see the image for an example. There are two problems in this image marked by red ovals:

  1. When the mouse hover over the sticky note with content "test", the content does not show up. But an empty bar shows up instead.

  2. When there are Asian characters in the sticky note, it shows up as empty boxes both in the comment list and in the detail box of the sticky note.

Note that Asian characters in the main text actually show up correctly. And I have installed the extended font package, as seen from the Playonlinux script attached below. BTW, I have tried other wine versions as well as Adobe Reader DC, but they do not help. Can anyone tell me how I can solve these problems? Thanks a lot!

For me, installing the Segoe fonts (e.g. from here) solved the problem.
