Description Caius Chance 2010-05-12 14:46:42 UTC
Description of problem:

(Originally from Peter Taran's email):

What do you think about moving horizontal arrows slightly up? In Courier
New arrows points almost to the middle point of small letters and it looks
nice. Liberation arrows are places essentually lower (what reason?) and
looks strange (See attachment 1 [details]).

This case is better I think (See attachment 2 [details]).

What your opinion?

Hi Pravin,

My last progress was creating the sample. i.e. you need to fix all of the font files. The problem of horizontal arrows (both left and right) are extremely easy to be spotted by human eyes in fontforge. It should be 2 chars for each font file.

Let me know if you need any.

Rgds, kaio.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
