I've surveyed the apps you've mentioned.

Monospace fonts in M+ is technically "dual-width" fonts because they have CJK ideographs, which are double-wide characters, and there are apps not supporting them. st uses max_advance_width to determine the advance width, so the width is doubled. neovim-qt uses QFontInfo.fixedPitch() to reject non-monospace fonts, so M+ 1m is rejected.

The issue is common among monospace fonts including CJK characters, so please contact app developers and request to support "dual-width" fonts.

Cheers,
Ryusei
