Inconsistent font sizes among KDE applications
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:45 EDT
Description of Problem:
The font size concept is different in Konqueror and in other KDE
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Konqueror default font to helvetica, size 11
2. See a HTML file that dont use CSS
3. Launch KSpread, fill some cells and set font to helvetica, size 11
The text in the Konqueror looks different then the text in KSpread, or
any other KDE application.
Both texts should look the same.
It seems that there are 2 units for font sizes: points and pixels.
Looks like Konqueror uses points, and other applications use pixels.
Microsoft uses pixels for font units.
Font handling has improved a lot in FC1 and FC2.
I reported some bugs to Trolltech and KDE, that apparently solved
This issue can be closed.
