Description kuropka 2003-12-03 10:13:41 UTC
When exporting drawing on a Linux machine to EPS, the font letters are
compressed and there is much space between them (I used Helvetica). Curves are
not smooth, they habe edges. This error only seems to occure on Linux machines.
I had no problems on windows.

Reassigned to Sven. Please have a look.
Comment 5 sven.jacobi 2004-01-21 11:23:28 UTC
SJ->HDU: The code for the eps export filter is platform independent, If
exporting eps files we are retrieving curves via GetTextOutlines, so this issue
seems to be a general linux specific font problem. I think this issue is in the
right hand now.

HDU reminder: OutputDevice::GetTextOutline() for non-scalable X11 font when
(bOptimize==true) => (nOrigWidth!=nWidth) => polygon width scaling
Comment 7 2004-01-22 10:17:46 UTC
As a temporary workaround I suggest to use scalable fonts only for EPS export or
to install scalable versions of the fonts that are only available as bitmap fonts.
Comment 8 2006-11-07 08:04:02 UTC
@sj: with GetTextOutline now available in B2DPolyPolygon format and X11 fonts
disabled since recently the only thing remaining to do to fix this is to update
the EPS export to use B2DPolyPolygon instead of the tools polygons. Since this
doesn't require much effort I suggest to adjust the target milestone to
something earlier.
