I have it so New Times Roman is only used for Polish, Czech or Russian.

It is intentional. Only the hints and title in the popup aren't Times New Roman MT 30.

Times New Roman MT 30 is the only choice for these languages except where by luck the subset of characters used exists in another font. I may need to change the popup title font when we start seeing process names in these languages.

Probably a slightly different font size. Thanks
