problem with font
Hi,

I'm having an issue with the myriad pro bold font. The spacing of the letters changed all of a sudden. I've closed, restarted, uninstalled, reinstalled a few different versions and nothing seems to work. I've played around with font size, hinting without luck as well.

Attached is an example of the spacing being off. It can be seen best in the word 'calcaneous' in the attached image. On the left, the text is normal looking. On the right, the spacing of the letters is off. I hadn't made any changes when this distortion started occurring.

The text in this image is myriad pro bold, 14 px. I'm using version 2.6.12 here (because I find it's easiest for me to use for what I need to do) but I've also updated gimp and tested the font in the latest version with the same result.

Thank you for any help you have to offer!!

Hi and welcome.
I can't see any attachment on your post...
My first thought would be that the Image Resolution is set to different values for the X Resolution and the Y resolution.
Or perhaps you have changed the Letter Spacing in the Text tool's Tool Options.
When you come back, to assist in resolving your issue, can you also attach the .xcf file not only an image of the problem.
Cheers

OP posted the same question on gimpusers and managed an attachment.

I can not see from the jpeg the difference between left and right sides. Here they are superimposed.
   

Conclusion. Nothing at the moment, An .xcf attachment with the text layers might help.

RE: problem with font
Now you pointed it out I can see the difference in spacing between the l and the c and the o and the c in calcaneocuboid.
