I have asked the vendor to scale all glyphs by 30%. The fonts are
expected on 29th of Oct 2004.
Comment 2 Leon Ho 2004-11-01 02:34:58 EST
Jatin, do you have a screenshot that can show Owen, our font expert,
on the current 30% tests with Luxi Sans?

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.
Comment 5 Leon Ho 2004-11-05 13:29:30 EST
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.

All good by me for the glyph sizes
