Description Ian Stevenson 2011-08-18 15:48:32 UTC

Misaligned cursor in Times font.

After entering text for a while the cursor becomes misaligned in the text so it is impossible to know where the next character will be entered. This occurs in left, right, and justified alignment, with various different fonts. This is a similar issue as reported here:
(apologies bad bug cross-posting protocol).

This will be a show-stopper for most authors - I am reluctantly thinking of changing to NeoOffice.

See images attached.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
