Version: 6.0.2

Using text directionality to put text top-to-bottom causes several issues:

1) within a single font, some characters additionally get rotated while the rest of the font renders properly

2) mixing typefaces, some formerly fullwidth characters get improperly aligned even when other characters from the same font file that have the exact same width (checked in Fontstruct) do not

3) certain typefaces get wholly rotated

How can I align the misaligning individual characters? How can I rotate individual characters that get improperly rotated? Are there any additional solutions to these issues?

First, you should file the problems you find as bug reports to the project's bug tracker. Without that step, any advise would be only a workaround at best.

@Mike Kaganski, the problem is that I don't know whether any of this is a bug or not, and what I'm doing wrong. It might be that I'm inadvertedly doing something wrong.
