- For FT2 backend, supply FT_LOAD_NO_BITMAP to avoid problems with
  fonts with embedded bitmaps (#67851)
Comment 4 Leon Ho 2002-07-15 21:33:54 EDT
Will it disable the embedded bitmap feature for GNOME2 all together?
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2002-07-16 04:46:04 EDT
Confirmed fixed.  Thanks.
Comment 6 Owen Taylor 2002-07-16 11:59:39 EDT
No, this only disables it for rendering text via the GNOME canvas.

In most other places, bitmaps will be used as long as antialiasing
is off. (Offering the option of using embedded bitmaps where they
exist and antialiasing elsewhere may be something we want to do
