Runa mentioned the new testing font is good with hinting now on Bengali. Is it true for Gujarati?
Comment 2 Ankit Patel 2005-05-16 05:21:02 UTC
No not good with hinting. If hinting is disabled then it looks better. I will attach the screenshot soon...
Comment 3 Ankit Patel 2005-05-16 05:28:38 UTC
Created attachment 114409 [details] Show the screenshot taken with enabling hinting. When you enable hinting then some characters get distorted. In this screenshot i have pointed a single word only, but there are more characters which have distortion problem.

Created attachment 114410 [details] Show the screenshot taken with disabling hinting. When you disable hinting then you can find the character better...
Comment 5 Leon Ho 2005-05-16 05:57:00 UTC
Ankit, is it only happen in Bold font? Because we cannot include bold font yet (printing problems #137790) So the question currently is, does regular font better with hinting or no-hinting?
Comment 6 Ankit Patel 2005-05-16 08:27:50 UTC
It happen to regular font also. So finally regular font better with no-hinting.
Comment 7 Ankit Patel 2005-05-16 08:33:56 UTC
Created attachment 114413 [details] Normal fonts with hinting enabled.
Comment 8 Ankit Patel 2005-05-16 08:34:37 UTC
Created attachment 114414 [details] Normal fonts with hinting disabled.
Comment 9 Leon Ho 2005-05-17 04:33:07 UTC
Final question, Ankit - is this issue unbearable to native Gujarati users? (i.e. is it a MustFix for RHEL4 as oppose to fixing it in future version like next FC and onwards?)
Comment 10 Ankit Patel 2005-05-17 05:17:48 UTC
It's not that much critical, We can fix this in the future version, may be next FC...
Comment 11 Leon Ho 2005-05-18 06:30:17 UTC
Thanks, okay moving to Fedora Core and to the right component.

This should be fixed now: * Tue Dec 13 2005 Carl Worth <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 2.3.92.cvs20051129-3 - Disable hinting for Lohit Gujarati But please double-check, (I don't actually have this font to test with). I've also committed a fix for this upstream in fontconfig. -Carl
