I have 2 custom fonts specified in my tiapp.xml:
When I build my app for the iOS 7.0.3 Simulator the custom fonts load correctly. When I build the app for the iOS 7.1 Simulator the fonts just show the text as square boxes with ? in them. I will attach screenshots. I will also attach the custom font used for Cambodian text (as shown in the screenshots).

    Please provide a simple runnable test case to reproduce this issue.

    This is quite likely not a bug in Titanium, instead what you're observing is the effect of a broader bug introduced in iOS 7.1 related to custom fonts for specific encodings. :( Even if you install a font system-wide (I.e. through a .mobileconfig profile) content that formerly rendered perfectly now seems to have reverted to "[?]". It seems to work *sometimes* the first time I launch an app but on subsequent launches fonts are broken. I have yet to find any bug report at Apple reflecting this issue.

    This is most likely an Apple bug. We will reopen this ticket if we have a test case that indicates it to be a Titanium issue.
