Summary0012289: Diacritics are not positioned correctly in Lao OpenType fonts
DescriptionDiacritics in Lao script need to be positioned contextually. This positioning is designed into the OpenType fonts, but this OT feature is not recognised by Scribus (although it works perfectly with LibreOffice, in linux (Ubuntu) as well as in Windows (MS Windows 7).
This issue is similar to issues 7140, 1547, and others, about other asian script (indian, cambodian,...).
Steps To ReproduceTry using Lao text in Scribus.
(To install fonts, just install a free version of LaoScript for Windows or download and install the fonts from website).

According to HOST-Oman team, these issues are fixed in the new CTL branch!
There will be a build provided soon to test this fix OR one can build their branch manually.

Please note that Lao is written from left to right, so the RTL tag is wrong here.

Khaled, thanks. Honestly the RTL tag was applied liberally to other tickets that are most likely not RTL as well. I've been converting the bug tracker to work more on a tag based model and so I've not applied it intelligently at all times. Working with Mantis has been a learning curve. Thanks for your patience with this.
