           Summary: Export as picture uses TFT sub-pixel hinting for text
           Product: umbrello
           Version: 1.3.2
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: umbrello-devel.kde.org
        ReportedBy: jh 333 org

Version:           1.3.2 (using KDE 3.3.2-1.6.2.kde, Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang))
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.10-1.9_FC2

If KDE has sub-pixel hinting turned on, the pictures exported from Umbrello keep the hinting.

This is not really desirable, since the effects only look good on TFT monitors. I think it can be assumed that a lot of exporting is to but images on the web or print, where extra colours around the letters look odd.

I think 'normal' anti-aliasing should be used instead.
