I'm not sure where you are encountering the problem.  Can you give more detail on how I might duplicate.

So far text is always turning out how I would want it.

After seeing the output that you got, I don't know what to tell you (I THOUGHT I was using the same method you used). Could I be missing something on my system and not even know it?

But if it will be of any help, all I did was to right-click in the menu area, select "Add", then "Text", then I typed in "The Quick Brown Fox" (in order to illustrate what was happening), and got the result that you saw before.

What version are you using (I am using 2.3)?

I'm using 2.3 as well.

I can't imagine I'm doing anything much differently.  If it was not Christmas season and I didn't seem to be always heading out the door somewhere, I'd make a video and show you what I'm doing.
If you can wait till mid January I'll be back from a vacation in Texas, remind me to make a video then.

Thanks, but all I DO know is that I am getting the type of result on my system that I showed you, as an example, on the previous page. But do you think that it MAY have something to do with those upgraded Libraries? Just asking.

wxsvg is the problem, at least the version that you have installed with dvdStyler.    Try upgrading to version 1.1.9.

wxsvg needs to be compiled a certain way, or you end up with that problem.
It needs

  --enable-render=libart \


as a option under configure.

See if that helps.  Sorry for the really late solution, but I never had a clue were the problem was coming from until I was building it from scratch for vl7.1

Via Gslapt, I tried it with wxsvg 1.1.9-i586-1vl70 and it still gave me the same issue.  So I then downloaded the source of wxsvg 1.1.9, and attempted to build a package via vpackager with the configuration option you mentioned, and got the following feedback:
Quote
checking host system type... Invalid configuration `\': machine `\' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub \ failed
So, I'm now attempting it once again without the final "\".  I'll edit this posting to report on my progress.

Edited to Add:

Okay, it did compile corrected when I simply added "--enable-render=libart" in the "Extra configure options" box of vpackager.  And, I now can do what I want with text.  Note the attached picture.  So, thanks for your help.  PS, it might be a good idea to rebuild the package of wxsvg within the repositories with the libart option for everybody.

That's the puzzler, it is build that way.  At least version 1.1.9 is.  I tested with a fresh install.  So would be beneficial to know what version you had running when you encountered the problem.

Glad we got it solved though.

I did a fresh install of dvdstyler using Gslapt, and it pulled in wxsvg (versions 2.3-i586-1vl70 and 1.1.9-i586-1vl70 respectively).  It still only displayed partial text in the manner that Locator had described.  After building wxsvg from source (using 1.1.9 with the additional configuration option) the text function did work perfectly as I described.
