#1912 closed defect (obsolete)

Write - 60 does not render Arabic correctly

Bug Status: Unconfirmed


When typing words letters do not connect correctly. You can type the same word three times and it gets rendered differently each time. Rendering is better when using Abiword in Gnome on a 1.5.

This issue and #1770 lead me to believe we need to update to a newer rev of Abiword source and then fix the issue in #1770.

Sayamindu, what is a timeline for this to happen? A group will be deploying a custom image to 2500 XOs in the next couple of weeks. Can we get this into that image in that timeframe?

Is this F-11 based build (XO-1.5) or XO-1 ?

comment:2 Changed 14 years ago by reuben

The rendering issue is seen on an XO 1.0 build 8.2.1

I'm trying to figure out how easy it is to backport/build the latest Abiword in F-9. Could you possibly provide the keystrokes that I need to use to reproduce this ? It would be incredibly helpful for my testing.

Is this a duplicate of:

Write activity doesn't do Arabic shaping where khaled has provided screenshots?
