Android Question Fixing the font scaling

On many devices, there is an option in setting to change the font scaling on the device. IE small to large. I need a way that I can stop this from affecting an app I have written. It is designed for one specific device (Samsung Note 3) and had been built to maximize the amount of data that can be seen. That means it relies on the font taking up a specific amount of space and no more. If a user increases the overall font size, the text fields, buttons etc all start having display issues where text starts wrapping, or getting cut-off. Is there anyway that I can force my app, to use a specific font scaling when it is running?
