font problem example

Hi. I downloaded a free ODF font called Trench and I formatted the text so only its outline would be visible. When I convert the file to .pdf, the text form changes, the distances between the characters "perimeter" become the same. See the file to see what I mean, please. Thanks.

Please attach a file with the font and the font (if it's free and under a license that you can share it). Also the related PDF would be good.

Marking as NEEDINFO - once attached please mark as UNCONFIRMED. Thanks

Er, actually what’s distorted here is not the PDF’s output, which shows the correct font forms (i.e., it displays as the font was drawn).
Comment 6 jlbraga 2015-10-15 17:44:33 UTC

At least in MY screen, I see the font is the same, but the characters are diferent than in the virtual writing sheet: in the .pdf file, the inner distance between the characters outline is always the same, while in the .odf file, there are "wider" parts of the characters, and "thinner" ones, and that's the idea. The .pdf file "erases" the characters' outline "configuration" and keeps it "straight standard". It eliminates the character "style".
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2015-10-18 17:25:36 UTC
I guess Adolfo was responding to how you described the attachment: "the distorted text in .pdf", while a more appropriate wording would have been "text looks ok in pdf export" or something like that.

It doesn't matter, if the text has an outline character formatting.

The thin form is correct, compare to 1001fonts.

Dear jlbraga,

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.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

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';
