Issue description
genete:

0.61.06 synfigstudio SVN = 689; synfig SVN = 693

  1. Add a text.
  2. Go to Style parameter and change it (to Italic or Oblique)
  3. Nothing change.


Same with Weight parameter

On the other hand the Font Family is not selectable form a list. I can only insert a text there. I have found that (in my Ubuntu 6.10) the following fonts work:

  • Courier
  • Times
  • Serif
  • Verdana
  • Sans Serif (I think this one is the default one when it doesn't recognizes the font)


Maybe there are more working. Is it not possible to include the possible fonts from a dialog window?. The user should select a font file (True Type) and the program read the file and render the text.

Even more. Sometimes, when click on the parameter to edit it then it show me weird things like a pair of points values, the word Normal, Italic, and others.

Finally the Orientation parameter should be called "OffSet" or "Indent" not Orientation. It is confusing.

dooglus:

I agree that Orientation isn't a good name for it, but I don't know what is.

An orientation of (0,0) means that the 'position' param specifies the position of the top left of the text and (1,1) means it specifies the bottom right.

So it can be used for aligning a bunch of text layers I guess. Set the y-orientation to 1 and the text will be right-aligned.

So should it be called Alignment instead?

Orientation makes me think of rotation, which isn't right at all.

Style and Weight still doesn't work on Synfig 1.1.11 on KDE Neon (Ubuntu 16.04).

I would be interested in paying a bounty to get this bug fixed, do you still use Bountysource at all?

Hello, Sam! Please let me know, did you downloaded binary package or compiled latest version from source?

Hi, I downloaded synfigstudio_1.1.11-20160727_amd64.deb from http://download.tuxfamily.org/morevna/packages/synfig/linux/ - is that the best one?

Hello, Sam! Yes, this is the best. I guess the problem here is that Style and Weight behave a bit differently than you expect. ^__^

Here I wrote a quick explanation, please check it out - https://morevnaproject.org/2016/09/08/set-font-style-synfig/

P.S. Yes, we still using Bountysource, although it is not much demanded. ^__^
