When I type a line with italics in it the line spacing seems to
change. At the moment the page is set to proportional 100% and the
font size is 12 pt for all characters on the line. With only "normal"
characters the lines are evenly spaced and the page looks nice.
When there is italics within the text, additional space appears above
and/or below the line so the lines are no longer evenly spaced. The
effect is to have a rather ragged page layout.
What it "looks like" is if LibreOffice has taken the outer boundary of
the character area and rotated it to create the italic effect and the
corners of the boundary have pushed the adjacent line up (or down or
both). Probably not that but that is the visual effect. Setting the
size of the italic characters to 11 pt makes everything look right
again. The effect carries through to pdf files generated from the
.odt editor files.
A friend who has a different version of LibreOffice (an older one) has
been able to take my .odt files and convert to .pdf without having
The font I am using (Garamond Pro) has an italic file included with it
although I can't prove that it is being used.
Can anyone suggest how I caused this and what I should do to fix it?
LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 running on Fedora 32 Workstation edition.
