Can't reproduce here, my screenshot with moderna attached.

Does this happen with apps other than evolution?  Can you see it in the Gnome
menus for example?

It might be an issue with the size of the fonts; a little bit larger and there
could be trancation.

Sarantis, could you try increasing the size of the font and see if you can

(I do not have FC4 at the moment).
Comment 8 Sarantis Paskalis 2005-09-28 17:22:32 EDT
I can see cropping, but not only at the last character.  The evolution buttons
have a maximum or fixed size, and anything beyond that size gets truncated.  See
attachment at comment #4.  The whole character at the final sigma is missing.

See also the next attachment, which shows the same behavior at a en_US locale
using Sans size 11.  So, this is a font-independent, locale-independent behavior.

I think it shows up in the greek locale, due to the larger space it needs for
the function description in the buttons.

Closing it NOTABUG.  Please file an evolution bug if you think it needs more
space for button descriptions in non-English languages.

Comment 10 Simos Xenitellis 2005-09-29 17:27:25 EDT
The problem appears to originate from the on-the-fly chaning of the UI font.
When you change font, it appears that the spacing of the characters is not
updated  on the fly as well; you simply need to restart to fix this problem.

Therefore, it still remains as NOTABUG per se but a feature in the on-the-fly
mechanism, when changing fonts.
It could be posted as a bug to GTK+.
