Right-aligned text in Edwin isn't aligned, depending on kerning
S4 - Minor
- Create a new score
- In the composer text field, enter AUAUAUAUAUAU
- Note how the text moves to the left after each AU pair
It looks like the right-alignment code doesn't properly take into account kerning. So this will look different depending on the composer's name. This looks pretty bad especially for multi-line text.
Even if Edwin is new with 3.6, I'd call it a regression (vs. 3.5), as it also is the new dedault
Thanks! 3.6 is my first use of MuseScore.
I can reproduce on Linux. it seems from the score properties you may be on Linux as well? Will be interesting to check on other OS's. See also #25922: Right aligned text does not align correctly, which was about a similar issue we saw years ago that somehow seemed fixed at one point. But for me, FreeSerif works fine, so does MuseJazz Text. and indeed most fonts I have installed. Other than Edwin, most seem fine, or are only off by a little. The only ones as bad or worse are Garamond and Petaluma Script.

Yes, this is on Linux. I have not tried on Windows or another platform.

It is the same on Windows.
