Graphite Font file


LO ver:

The first BaseGlyph-Diacritic at the beginning of a paragraph is not positioned properly. The subsequent pairs are placed ok.

The attached doc shows the same pair at the beginning and following text flow.

1st pair positioning is wrong. 2nd is ok.

The bug has existed at least from LO Ver 5.1.

Pl ignore GodaGr_1_0_6.ttf

use GodaGr_1_0_5.ttf instead.

Yes; to the extent it's working with Graide (Graphi IDE from SIL), Worldpad (from SIL) and Firfox. Screenshots of the same "Test text" copy pasted into World pad and firefox are attached

Dear Floater,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
