#606 closed defect (fixed)

SoaS includes lots of fonts that don't work in Write (Soas2-200903211320)

Description

Just wanted to run through the fonts currently installed in Soas and indicate the ones that render correctly in Write, and the ones that don't. I'm sure OLPC's distro has a set of fonts that all functioned well in Write and very likely supported more language scripts (will go look-up that list following this ticket):

Bitstream Charter = good
Century Schoolbook L = good
Console = tiny letters that all overprint
Dingbats = Just Prints Uue Code For All Keys I Tried
Fixed = tiny letters that all overprint
Hershey-* (all 9 of them) = badly corrupted characters and broken line spacing
Lucida Typewriter = tiny letters that all overprint
MT Extra = good
MiscFixed = tiny letters that all overprint
Nimbus Mono L = good
Nimbus Roman No9 L = good
Nimbus Sans L = good
Standard Symbols L = just prints UUE code for all keys I tried
URW Bookman L = good
URW Chancery L = good
URW Gothic L = good
URW Palladio L = good
Utopia = good
cmbx10 = good
cmex10 = good
cmmi10 = no spaces work
cmr10 = good
console8x8 = tiny letters that all overprint
eufm10 = good
msam10 = good
msbm10 = good
wasy10 = good
Times New Roman = good

  • Bug Status changed from Unconfirmed to Needinfo

So the fonts that does not render correctly in Soas - are not present in the OLPC build? We could remove those of possible and gain some space I guess.

Replying to erikos:

Yes, that's my understanding, but I'm just going by what I see in Write. I'm not sure if it is showing all installed fonts or just some sub selection.

Need to remember to check this again in latest SoaS. FWIW, I'm not sure if this is an abiword issue not supporting some fonts types, a distro issue shipping flakey fonts, or a mix of both, I do know my F11 sugar-jhbuild also has a bunch of fonts (large number of them actually) that don't render correctly in Write.
