Sample document

When text is rendered beneath the text grid. Text grid simulates the paper with  printed grid, so it should have been rendered beneath the text.

Is this basically the same as bug 104631 ?
Comment 2 Mark Hung 2017-05-10 13:16:16 UTC
@Buovjaga: those are two different features, despite we have the same expectation for them.

For me, this is a bug.

You have set in Format > Page Format > Text Grid that the page is 22 lines per page and 21 characters per line. With this setting, the maximum font size is 22.10 pt (as indicated in the Text Grid dialog). However, on the page you have set the font size for those text to be 36pt, which exceeds the 22.10pt limit, thus the characters can not fit into the grids.

Changing the font size to less or equal than 22.1pt will bring the characters fitting into the grids perfectly.

Mark as NOTABUG. Feel free to reopen if you disagree.
