Version: 0.0.1 (using Devel)
Since 4.8 I have the following problem:
The text selection does not correctly start below my mouse cursor.
E.g. when starting to select the text "-graphicssystem native"
and the mouse is over/at the left end of the - character, the selection starts
with the character " left of it, and when I move the mouse to the right, the
selection itself lags behind the mouse position. E.g. when I'm already with the
mouse over the ending " the selection only is done until "-graphicssystem nativ
This was detected while checking bug 290371
There you can read the response from Christoph Feck:
This is because Qt 4.8 now defaults to subpixel precision when layouting text
positions. Konqueror has to make sure it computes the same widths for
layouting/selecting as Qt uses for rendering, or alternatively force integer
font metrics (which would make it look worse, but work correctly).
Steps to Reproduce:
Select exactly the text which is under the mouse, as was done in all previous KDE versions.
