Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:53 EST
Description of problem:
Scale of the indic fonts glyphs are not matching on other fonts'
glyphs. Hence it may not provide best readable UI for users
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login into one of the indic languages
glyphs are small
glyphs size should be similar to english glyphs
I have asked the vendor to scale all glyphs by 30%. The fonts are
expected on 29th of Oct 2004.
Jatin, do you have a screenshot that can show Owen, our font expert,
on the current 30% tests with Luxi Sans?

screenshots of gu font scaled to 30%
This font is not the lohit font, but another font which the vendor scaled and
sent. Based on this, i have asked the vendor to scale glyphs 30%.

New scaled hindi font in evolution compose window
With en_US string and hindi string, the alignment is a bit off.
30% scaled fonts are built in ttfonts-indic-1.7.
For mis-alignment, let's open another bug for it.

indic fonts in gedit
Had a look with the new ttfonts-indic-1.8-1. The indic glyphs size is now very
similar to english glyphs. Please see attached screenshot.
Will leave the bug open for one more day for any additional comments.
All good by me for the glyph sizes
Thanks for your feedback, Jatin. Resolving the bug.
