Description minhsien0330 2009-02-28 02:51:58 UTC
Dear all:
On Linux, I found the font displaying problem in OOo-dev 3.1.0 (OOO310m2 ,

In different zoom size, the displaying of the fonts sometimes loss it's bold or
italic effects, and sometimes became crushing.

I uploaded two ogg videos ( Ogg data, Skeleton v3.0) to show you these problems.
Besides, the two videos was also available at my google site:

Thanks a lot~

Faking attributes like boldness and slant is currently disabled when the font provides embedded bitmaps 
at these sizes. The idea was that the embedded bitmaps that are usually optimized to the last pixel 
should not be distorted.

You could disable embedded bitmaps with setting an environemt variable
Does it help?

If yes, then maybe we should consider to disable the use of embedded bitmaps if font attributes need to
