Replacing Valo Open Sans font in Vaadin 7

Hello All,

I really need to replace the default Valo theme's Open Sans font with the one that contains full-unicode character set (especially polish diacritical chars). I've wasted two days as for now and I still have no clue on how to do it...

In Chrome's console I can find the path to original fonts, but they do not exist on my drive:

I have new fonts in mytheme/fonts, but I no matter what I do - I can't replace the font... So (ofc) texts are displayed incorrectly:

So that's why I'm begging: please help! :)
Thank you in advance

Fonts are served from themes jar. You can load your own fonts like this: https://vaadin.com/docs/-/part/framework/themes/themes-fonts.html

Then you need to define in Valo theme variable $v-font-family like done in these examples here: https://vaadin.com/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Valo+Examples

Those two lines need to be before
.expenseplannertheme { }, but after @import lines
