Description dlelliott99 2011-03-13 15:50:53 UTC
Description of problem:
1. Punctuation position: Position of comma in the Liberation Serif font is incorrect. This is especially noticable in the italicized possessive case.
2. When the / is used for an overstrike especially on a single letter, two or three extra slashes show up. It would also be very nice if other symbols could be used for an overstrike such as the: ~. In the URW Bookman L font this would be especially helpful for then you could have the letters er overstruck with ~.
3. A general comment: For a 160 GB hard drive, why could not the entire 160 GB be used rather than just 152 GB? I have tried Ubuntu and they are able to do this. There are probably reasons for this that I don't know about.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All versions insofar as I know.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just try the above for a single letter with the slash overstrike.
Actual results:
You will see.

Expected results:

Openmpi has nothing to do with openoffice.  I think you opened this bug against the wrong component.  What component did you mean to open this bug against?

Comment 2 Doug Ledford 2011-03-25 18:47:25 UTC
This sounds like an openoffice issue to me.  Reassigning component.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2011-03-25 21:01:19 UTC
Specific exact bug reports on one topic with reproducers, example test-cases and screenshots of the error please if necessary, help us help you by providing as much relevant clear supplementary information.

e.g. "Position of comma in the Liberation Serif font is incorrect. This is especially noticable in the italicized possessive case."

Provide a test document, and maybe a screenshot of the problem. Is the positioning different in e.g. gedit. i.e. are we talking about some bad OOo-specific layout or is font itself.

Comment 4 dlelliott99 2011-03-26 01:27:17 UTC
This shows the problem with an overstrike for one letter using the slash in the Liberation Serif font:


There should only be one slash.

For three letters:


There is an extra slash at the end.

Unfortunately, the copy did not carry over into this comment.

For the comma in the possessive case, see this example for the Liberation Serif font:


Here, once more this comment area does not show the problem. Please try this in OpenOffice.org using the autocorrect option to replace the usual ' character with the custom character. This is especially noticable in the italicized Liberation Serif font.

Comment 5 dlelliott99 2011-03-26 01:35:21 UTC
Sorry, appended is a screenshot that you requested.


I hope this works.

The problem seems to be in the font itself, i.e., in the position the apostrophe is in between letters.

There were no attachments to this issue. I can guess that / strike-through problem, those I don't see the problem with ’

Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2011-03-29 12:59:25 UTC
So, I'll take this issue for fix the strike-through extending outside the range it is supposed to affect.
