'bold' variants not working
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:54 EDT
Description of problem:
In Nimbus Roman No 9 L, and URW Bookman, the bold variants are not working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start OpenOffice.org
2. Start typing
3. Click on the 'bold' button.
4. Resume typing
5. Open nautilus at fonts:///
After step 4, no difference in weight is seen. For other fonts bold is heavier
as it should be.
After step 5, bold variants for the urw fonts are not seen.
Bold is heavier than regular.
i can reproduce it with "Nimbus Roman No 9 L", but "Urw Bookman l" works fine
it seems that n021024l has wrong Weight. I have fixed this font in 2.1-2. It
should work now.
That's worse. Now there's no 'Regular', just bold.
Hmm, it works fine for me both in koffice and oowriter with this 2.1-2 !
which font did you mean here?
it's fixed in 2.1-2
I'm also seeing bold only Nimbus Roman No9 L with 2.1-2, no regular.
This is for example in OOwriter, Mozilla and Gnome font preferences.
Also there seems to be no Bold (i.e. Medium) Italic listed for Nimbus Roman No9 L
in Gnome font preferences.
I also have only bold Bookman and Palatino in OOwriter.
And now in 2.1-4.1 Nimbus Roman No9 L regular is fine,
but italic is bolded.
