Jim, Matthias can you look into this? Imho it is a simple refresh of the
Font. (If we ship it.)

I had a look at the patched font and it is based on an old version (1.7
?). At the moment we ship version 2.4.3.

A general overhaul of that font would be needed. Do we have some font
specialists in our PMC or the ASF?

I am very, very rusty. (About 15 years)  Point me towards some sources and I’ll see if I can help.

What we have in our source is the TTF itself and an older SFD:

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk/main/extras/source/truetype/symbol/

I see. I did a quick look and comparison with FontBook on my Mac. They are definitely different. I am not even sure that the patched font from the Forum is encoded the same way as the sample shows different characters.

From the thread it looks like the patched font has misplaced the Greek Letters. Let me see if I can provide a version 2.5 of OpenSymbol that can find the updated square root and brackets while preserving the encoding.

I’ve used FontForge to play with Fonts, but I cannot get it to work on my current macOS. I do have a version of 10.7 which I will try later this week.

Regards,
Dave

Yes, the (square) root is the most visible character in Math, that looks
broken (at least on Windows).

Great that you have a look at it!

Re: AOO 4.2 and OpenSymbol font

Hi Dave,

Can you also have a look at "Weierstraß-p" (Unicode U+2118).
In Writer and Math (only Windows, not Linux) the descender appears
slightly truncated.

Also, on Windows 10 OpenSymbol seems to be substituted by some MS font.
Windows 7 still shows OpenSymbol.
That might be a bug in Windows 10 but maybe we can get around this somehow.

Regards,

   Matthias
