Text skew on vertical text oddly affects advances.
Project Member Reported by, Sep 24 2013 Back to list
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Add 'paint.setTextSkewX(-SK_Scalar1 / 4);' to verttext.cpp

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The text to have skew, but the vertical advances not skewed. Instead the text is skewed and the advances are also skewed.

Please use labels and text to provide additional information.
This happens on the current experimental GDI vertical text and on Linux and Mac.

This behavior is obviously unwanted, but the scaleX might be desirable. Some clarification with how the fPost2x2 matrix should be handled with vertical orientation.
