Description Khaled Hosny 2017-01-23 18:33:33 UTC
This is similar to bug 104403, but for SVG table instead ( This might be a trickier as instead of rendering layered glyphs with different colors we will need to render SVG graphics. We already have decent SVG support, but Iā€™m not sure how usable is it from a low level as text rendering in VCL.

Steps to Reproduce:
Using the bundled Emoji One font.

Actual Results:  
Emoji glyphs are monochrome.

Expected Results:
They should be colored.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
