|0002756||Scribus||Fonts||public||2005-10-23 13:24||2006-01-10 14:00|
|Fixed in Version||1.3.2cvs|
|Summary||0002756: Hebrew letters don't print correctly from scribus|
|Description||I am building a booklet, and on screen all looked fine.|
When I printed out my work all text in Hebrew printed out uniformly wrong.
The most striking is the letter yud which is hidden under the letters to the left of it.
Since it happens to all the yuds as well as other letters I am assuming its a bug.
|Steps To Reproduce||I type any hebrew in scribus (I used at least two fonts Nachlieli and Druglin) the letter spacing is wacko, most pronounced is the yud.|
|Additional Information||If I can get my scanner working I will upload scanned images so you can see whats wrong|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

It's worth noting that support for scripts such as hebrew that require special character position for "supplimentary" characters is still largely absent in Scribus. There's ongoing work into a new text handling core for the application, and that should make better support for hebrew practical. Most indic and arabic languages are also poorly supported for similar reasons.
With regards to this specific bug, does the same problem appear if you save as PDF? If so, please attach the PDF.
There's a discrepance between Scribus canvas (correct) and generated PDF (wrong spacing).
Note that the sample docs use Scribus only for the titles, not the lyrics.
||The issue does not appear if the fonts are converted to outlines in PDF (export PDF -> Fonts -> subset all fonts)|
||Franz, I assigned to you since it looks as if Scribus and PDF differ on where the basepoints of glyphs in RTL text is.|
|Sorry, misunderstood the issue to be about the positioning of special accent chars, etc.|

||I added a title made in gimp and in scribus so that those who don't know hebrew can compare them.|
ok now there are pairs of exact matches made in gimp and scribus.
In scribus the final nun is to far left
the yud is way to far left and is underneath the Kuf
the yud in the word li is now part of the next word
the last yuud is underneath the final Mem ouch!
The fey is touching the resh.
In short the letters are missed spaced.
For reference look at the gimp example
||Should be fixed now, at least the test files are ok now.|
