Created attachment 128706 [details]

Using new Harfbuzz common layout engine with current master causes misaligned numbers within vertical ruler of Writer, Impres, Draw (see attached screenshot). Issue seems to be present on OS X only.

This would be the CoreTypes analog to bug 100986 on Windows
Comment 2 V Stuart Foote 2016-11-13 06:48:53 UTC
OT  @Thorsten, could you please have a look at the STR for bug 103767 --Text along Path (old Font Work) is broken for type "rotate"--and add comments on applicability to OS X
