FMPA 14v4 or Win 10 (v1511) - Character problems in script workspace

I am currently experiencing a few issues when editing scripts / calculations, whereby some characters are no longer displaying, instead I get a square box. e.g

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 -6

I see:

1 [] 2 [] 3 [] 4 [] 5 [] 6

 

This is apparent in calculations, script workspace, data viewer, layout management and similar places.

At first I thought it may be a corrupt font, but script workspace uses a different to data viewer etc.

 

It still works as expected, well calculations and script steps etc, although I am also experiencing some instability (crashing) when saving scripts or closing out of manage database windows.. which is surprising since FM14 has been extremely stable for me since release.. until I applied both updates (Win & FM)

 

I'm not entirely sure if this is caused by 14v4 or Windows 10 v1511 (recent update) since I applied both at similar times, although FMPA v13 is perfectly fine, it's just 14v4 I am seeing the issue with, so edging towards it being a FileMaker Pro issue.

 

Is anybody else seeing this with FMPA 14v4, specifically on windows.
