[Windows] Font kerning issue with lyrics in 2.0.3 not present in 2.0.2
Similar, but not the same as
The kerning issues in 2.03 were so bad I downgraded back to 2.02, which is acceptable.
The problem are fairly consistant over a large variety of common fonts, professional ones, that don't have glaring issues in 2.02.
MuseScore users should not be limited to FreeSans and FreeSerif. Those fonts are OK, but they aren't great.
The kerning issue should just get fixed.
The lyric font in these samples is MScore Text. Your font.
System Text seems to have different kerning issues, and System Text problems appear the same in 2.02 and 2.03.
Here is a sample (score attached) with some big issues very clear to see in 2.03.
Here is the same sample in 2.02 with no changes, and while it clearly has problems with l and i, that's a problem with the MScore Text Font only.
Most professional sans serif fonts look just fine on this sample in 2.02, but look terrible in 2.03.
The biggest issues are:
There is way too much space after a, v, and y.
There's way too little space c, i, l, and m.
And it looks like general garbage in 2.03 and did not in 2.02,
The Staff Text font is Century Schoolbook Bold Italic, because it is commonly available in packages like Windows, OpenOffice, MS Office, etc. and frequently used for this purpose, but those kerning issues may be unrelated to whatever happened to the lyric text between 2.02 and 2.03.
I built a Musescore kerning stress tester based on Kern King by Leslie Cabarga (lower case only) (also attached.)
