font rendering on linux messes up letter spacing #14853
First off, phantomjs is amazing. It has saved me so much time and has truly produced some great pdfs for my work. To all those that helped produce phantomjs...a huge thank you!
I include examples in the additional info below...mainly, note the letter spacing issues. at 16px, it's less noticeable...as you start to shrink the font though, it becomes more apparent.
Now, I did solve the problem by using an SVG version of OpenSans by converting the woff file from google thru onlinefontconverter.com (but then the text becomes unselectable in the pdf...not a huge deal to me but could be annoying to someone) I only submit this issue in the hopes that someday it gets fixed so that I can use normal font files.
I used the following rasterize.js file
and I used the following command line
Due to our very limited maintenance capacity (see #14541 for more details), we need to prioritize our development focus on other tasks. Therefore, this issue will be automatically closed. In the future, if we see the need to attend to this issue again, then it will be reopened. Thank you for your contribution!
