Description Andreas 2018-12-02 13:38:05 UTC
I have lots of slides that change their text appearance when I try to edit text. The change effect the size, position or spacing I think, the font seems to be the same.

It is really annoying because the text jiggles, which makes it hard to align text. You never know how the text will be rendered in presentation or PDF export. Sometimes the text appearance of the edit mode stays until you change slides. I am not sure which rendering is correct, I think the one from the edit mode. Anyway the constant changes drive me crazy.

I will attach a document where it occurs and a video showing the issue.

My setup:
Kubuntu 18.04
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 18.0.5

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the document
2. Click the text to editing

Actual Results:
Text renders differently in edit mode

Expected Results:
Text appearance should be the same as long as I don't change anything

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I noticed that the issue is less awful when the document is saved as pptx. So maybe this is a workaround for now.
