Squares on popup dialog instead of text

I don't no why the popup dialog shows squares instead of the text. This happens when I try to delete a note or check "about" from Help menu. See image below. How can I fix it?

I am using v1.2.6 on Ubuntu 20.04 and installed Joplin from Snaps.

I don't know if it's related but we don't support the Snap image. Does it work if you try from the AppImage we release?

Looks like this is re-occurring issue issue with the snap package.

This should be fixed in the next build or so. It's been a problem for Snaps in general but the work has landed upstream that should finally prevent it from popping up again.

I'll likely manually build the 1.3 release to ensure it has that fix included and everything after that should have it by default once the build tools are moved from candidate to stable.
