Description Joe Smith 2006-08-10 07:54:11 UTC
Fonts set at increasing point sizes should increase in rendered size
proportionally: a 200-point "X" should be twice as big as a 100-point "X", in
the same font of course.
This is true in Writer up to about 600-point text; beyond that, there is a
smaller change in the rendered size compared to the change in point size. An
800-point "X" is only about 7% larger on the screen or printer than a 600-point
"X" (a 33% increase in point size).

The problem is demonstrated in the attached document and screenshot.

I have checked 2.0.2 and 2.0.3 on Linux (Fedora 5); the problem does not appear
in 2.0.2 on Windows98.

The problem also does not occur on either Linux or Windows when the characters
are part of a text drawing object (see the blue characters in the attachments).

Note: there is an additional issue with the character spacing evident in the
sample document, which I have filed as Issue 68318.

MRU->HDU: as you can see from the attached document, the scaling of larger font
sizes does not seem to be correct. The 800pt character is only slightly
larger/higher than the 600pt character.

Please check the fix from issue 61721 when OOo 2.0.4 is available.

The other issue 61271 happens on windows only so it cannot be a duplicate...

Yes, I checked this against Windows and saw no problem. Also, 61271 is not found
on Linux. The sample document attached here prints and exports to PDF exactly
the same as it appears on the screen.

I think this issue can be closed.

The sample document no longer shows the incorrect text scaling, testing AOO 4.0 on Fedora Linux.
