Unicode combining marks visualization problem

Asked by Cristiano Fontana on 2016-12-28

Recently I have been using in inkscape the unicode combining mark: Combining Right Arrow Above (U+20d7)
I have had two problems:

  1. With version 0.91r13725 (shipped with Fedora 24). The only font which correctly displays the arrow on top of the previous character is the default "sans-serif." The other fonts that I tried, place it on the side. This could be a problem of the fonts, though.

  2. With version 0.92pre3 r (shipped with Fedora 25). The previous problem persists, but there is another one. With font "sans-serif," if I place an arrow on top of a capital letter it is placed halfway, while on top of a lower-case letter it is correctly placed on top.

If I open on 0.91 an SVG file made with 0.92, the arrows are correctly placed on top. Viceversa, if I open on 0.92 an SVG file made with 0.91, the arrows are placed halfway.
On 0.92, if I export the SVG to a PDF, the arrows are placed halfway as well.

These are two images that show the issues:

Hi Cristiano,

I'll turn this into a bug report, it's not a question.
Thank you!
