Black "line" below text is the track drawn by "A"
When some part of text is outside the vector object "frame", it gets drawn on the display when the "frame" is moved around. Fortunately it's only a display bug - it doesn't appear in exported image.
But it does preserve when you turn vector layer to paint one...
This is a size effect of the vector rendering code being slow and perhaps not updating the right parts of the canvas. I don't know if anything can be done about it.
You can also see it with vector shapes and such.
Is this still happening in nightly for anyone? I think Dmitry fixed this problem recently.It seems ok on my Neon build
Seems it's corrected - in the latest build I got (0726f33) all the italic text is inside frame, so there are no "leftovers" that caused the issue.
Wait, nope - I checked with text that ends with dot, my mistake. So in 0726f33 it is/was still present.
Just to be clear, do you have Graphics Acceleration (OpenGL) on or off in the settings.
For me, when Graphics Acceleration is on I get no artifacts. When I turn Graphics Acceleration off, I DO get artifacts.
For me it occurs both when it's on and off - only when it's off, the issue gets worse (not only cropped parts, but also text inside the frame leaves artifacts.
I don't have the latest version though - for some reason every download from the nightlies hangs on about 16-20% for me and won't move on...
The bug should now be fixed as part of the fix for bug 392068
