Description Mark Hung 2017-04-23 07:35:24 UTC
Created attachment 132763 [details]
Sample document.

The attachment text has text grid on, squared page mode and snap to char off. There is unexpected space between Latin and CJK text. It seems that changing the script from CJK to Latin or Latin to CJK snapped the text to the grid.

Expected: when snap to char is off, distance between characters should be the same, or at least does not create the effect of large gaps as illustrated in the sample.
