is displayed

Result 2- The text is overwritten when the alignment is changed

  • Distribution/OS changed from Other (name your distribution in the description) to OLPC

You didn't mention the version of Write activity, but os115 shipped Write-63. Hope that helps.

Does this reproduce on XO-1?

In XO-1 the the same thing happen for “Hershey- Gothic" font styles.

  • Keywords 11.2.0 added

I set the font to "Hershey-Gothic-English" in Write after starting the activity in OLPC OS 11.2.0 os14/Write-73 and could not see anything except pseudo-random dots when I typed.
