Description jmills 2002-10-03 13:29:05 UTC
Large (96pt) italic bold albany font extends outside the
text box ("Fit to width", and on Laser effect animation.

This is even more pronounced using the SunSans-Demi font.

Some chacraters are more pronounced than others - a "w"
is a good example.

Create a text box with a "w".  set to 96pt bold italic Albany or SunSans Demi

Looks fine.

Now drag the text box - not that it leaves a bit of the "W" behind
and doesn't repair the moved text box.

Create a string with "mwmwmw" in it, and set to animate with text
effect Laser and veritical drop in.

Not that during the animation incomplete characters are moved
which looks real strange to the audience.

Jonathan, thank you for using and supporting OOo.

Duplicate on RH 8.0, OOo 643.

Clipping issues with large fonts during the slide show presentation.

When the fonts are animated using the laser effect, individual letters
are cut off on the edges.

thorsten, one for you
Comment 9 thb 2003-09-12 18:17:20 UTC
I'm actually not so sure whether an engine rewrite will fix this. I
could imagine that, as this only happens for italic fonts, the real
culprit are wrong text bounding boxes. There is a notable difference
between nominal character bounds, and the bounding box for the 'ink'.
The former is used for placing one character besides the other, the
latter is the true bounding box of the glyph polypolygon. Thus, CL,
will try what the rewrite gives us here, but be prepared that this one
might bounce back to you ;-)
