0.84 b2: Draw Tool: Text alignment has no effect

Postby helmut » Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:25 pm

In the Draw tool, when inserting multiline text and then changing the text alignment, the text alignment will have no effect.

To reprocude:

1. Open Draw tool
2. Insert a text which uses multiple lines.
3. Change the alignment of the text.
--> Text alignment will not change.

Not quite sure whether I had "Shadow" and "Outline" activated when producing this bug.

0.84 beta 3

In Draw tool, when inserting a multiline text with outline and shadow the text alignment doesn't work properly anymore.

To reproduce:
1. Start Draw tool
2. Insert a text.
3. Specify two lines of text, e.g.
This is a multline
text

4. Activate outline and shadow.
5. Change the alignment of the text (Left/centered/right).
--> You'll notice that the shadow changes its position and the text aligns no longer correctly.

it's a limitation of Qt API :(

Thanks for checking, Pierre. The "limitation" sounds like a bug in the Qt API.

Main problem fixed in beta 4.

Note:
The text changes its position slightly when changing aligment. But this is a minor issue.
