Skia's fake bold requires no-hinting.
Project Member Reported by, Jan 23 2014 Back to list
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a paint with full hinting, with a font with hinting instructions, and set fake-bold.
2. Draw text with this paint.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expect nice fake bold. Often get ugly fake bold instead.

Please use labels and text to provide additional information.
Skia's fake bold takes outlines and strokes the edges to produce the fake bold. We need to ensure that the unhinted outlines are used, because stroking hinted outlines is a recipe for ugly.
