I think this really shows the power of Open Source development.

hi ale,

I tested the patch that andreas given with latest scribus code and it is working perfectly. I amazed about the solution. This was real life saver for us. Thank you for your quick response and patch. I think this will fix the problem for all indic langauges. Because Malayalam is the most complex indic language with lot of complex rules. So it may work for all.

Thanks for this amazing fix

Best,
Ranjithisiji

hi mujeebcpy,

if you look at the patch andreas has put in the bug tracker you will notice that scribus uses cairo for the display on screen and its own library for creating the pdf.

the patch is "very simple" and studying it will help you understand a bit how scribus works in a part of the code that is very important for indic and arabic languages : - )

currently, i have to first get my own copy of the scribus code to compile again, then i can test if the changes proposed by andreas work for me!

i'll get back to you very soon

Further feedback: "it's not the reordering, it's the clusters. Scribus doesnt scale multi-glyph clusters correctly"

Yes. It is the problem of scaling the multi-glyph character. ജോ is a combination of ജ + ോ. When we scale the sentence the calculation of spacing creates the problem.

I tried this thing in Libreoffice and it is working perfect there. Is scribus using same library to display text? Can we get any help from their code?

hi ranjithsiji,

i had a chat with andreas about this bug.

he asked me about the pdf output and i tried it out: when you increase the character width, the second character wanders to the right, in the pdf it's displaced to the left.

according to andreas, the relevant variable is "xadvance"...
i wonder if looking at differences in how pdflib_core.cpp and text/screenpainter.cpp manage it, might help fixing the bug...

he also supposes that the reordering of the characters might be "confusing" scribus...

grepping for xadvance in the source code gives only a few occurrences and might help studying how this work.

i'll keep you informed : - )

ciao

nice to meet you, ranjitshiji!

for this specific issue, we well probably need to wait for jean to come back from a few days holidays.

i'm not a font specialist, but i guess that in this case you will have to focus on the font shaping and -- probably -- harfbuzz.

it might something simple, that jean can fix very fast... but if it's something that needs more work, i would be glad to help you guys better understand this part of the scribus code that is so important for you!

i have also added another screenshot to the ticket, one that better shows the issue for people like me who have no clue about your language : - )
