OTF font render cuts diacritics if on single line

Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. Insert “Make Text Layer” and “Render layers to window”
  2. Change font to OTF font and input text with diacritics
  3. If rotation is changed or a newline is added before text, diacritics appear

Have you found a workaround?

Add a newline before text

Other notes

  • Vuo version: 2.4.2
  • macOS version: macOS 12
  • CPU: x86_64
  • Have you been able to reproduce the problem? Yes, the problem occurs consistently when I follow the steps above
  • How severely does this bug affect you? It’s annoying but I can work around it.

This doesn’t happen with TTF fronts.

On Quartz Composer this problem also existed and could be circumvented by an input “image height” margin added in “Image with string”:
Using 2 instances of “Image with string”, the first to get rendered image dimensions and the second with a height margin added to reveal the concealed diacritics.

Thanks for reporting this problem, @pedronbvasconcelos. We were actually able to reproduce the problem with a TTF font, so it seems not to be limited to OTF, but rather to affect some specific fonts and not others. We’ve accepted this bug report and plan to fix it in a future release.
