Description Aron Budea 2016-10-04 01:18:57 UTC
Created attachment 127795 [details]
Screenshot with OpenGL enabled

1. Have OpenGL enabled.
2. Start Writer.
3. Open this attachment from bug 101962:

See attachment in next comment how terrible the second line looks. Looks fine with default rendering.
Reproduced with,, 5.3 master build / Windows 7. It looks much worse in intermittently, then slightly better since Confirmation in Linux needed.
Works in => regression

There's no "next comment" with attachment, it was attached together with the description.
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2016-10-04 04:06:17 UTC
Interestingly if one edits the default paragraph style changing the font selection from Liberation Serif to different fonts, for example a Graphite font (Linux Libertine Display G) or to to some other MS fonts (Calibri, Cambria) the text renders correctly. 

But changing to other MS fonts show the layout glitches (Arial, Tahoma, Times New Roman) that Liberation Serif shows on layout.

This one is weird.

Comment 5 Aron Budea 2016-11-22 07:16:14 UTC
Looks good with the new common layout. Closing as WFM.
Comment 6 V Stuart Foote 2016-11-22 14:08:32 UTC
It is still bad with OpenGL in 5.2 Windows builds

Version: (x64)
Build ID: d54a8868f08a7b39642414cf2c8ef2f228f780cf

but is correct with new HarfBuzz layout with OpenGL on 5.3.0 master, and with old DirectWrite based layout the issue is still present.

Giving it a target:5.3.0 since we know the new layout engine corrects it.
