The same problem exists on the bottom line, where the exclamation points and asterisks next to "Wow, that is great" are reversed.

The problem still exists in 2.0.3, though there have been some changes in the behavior since the issue was first reported. I'm attaching a screenshot of Slide 5 as it appears in 2.0.3. If you compare it with Slide_5_OO.jpg that is attached to Issue 37134, you'll notice that while the three dots have moved correctly to the left, letters are now overlapping each other.

It this problem is visible on Windows only then please check again with build newer than SRC680_m176.
Comment 11 alan 2006-08-30 10:42:52 UTC
Yes, the problem only exists in Windows, and I see that slide 5 looks good in the latest snapshot build. Thank you for the fix. (The original problem with the dollar signs and exclamation points in slide 3 remains unchanged, though.)

ayaniger->hdu: Have you had a chance to look at the problem of misplaced weak chars? Also, I have filed a separate issue for the overlapping characters. It's Issue 70378.
