Description Doug B 2020-03-03 16:29:30 UTC
Description:
The text is not properly vertically centered using the tabbed user interface (notebook bar). See screenshot.

My system font is Fira Sans but I believe this happens for the default KDE font too.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I recommend using Fira Sans as a system font. I'm using Kubuntu 19.10 as an OS.
2. Open up Libreoffice
3. Switch to the tabbed user interface style

Actual Results:
Text in tabs not perfectly vertically centered

Expected Results:
Perfectly vertically centered text in tabs


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: Yes


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Also worth mentioning my global display scaling in KDE is set to 125%.

Looks also a bit out of center with Noto Sans UI, at least for the active tab.

Szymon, any idea?

Hm, not sure whether I'd actually call this a bug... :-)

Apart from the question whether text actually needs to be perfectly vertically centered:

You're taking a close look at the tab containing the text "Home", which has no letters that reach "below the baseline" (there is certainly a more correct typographic term...).

What does that comparison look like if you choose the "Layout" tab for example, which has the letter "y" in it which reaches further down? With my plain eye, it seems like it should be pretty much "perfectly vertically aligned" then, but I did not make any measurements...

PS: I'd personally take the bottom line of non-active tabs as the bottom line for the measurement, since the text in the active tab AFAICT is vertically aligned with the text in the non-active tabs.

Yeah, I would rather put it: "have enough padding in the tabs, so text does not induce claustrophobia"
