Trying to follow thread on fdo#37453. I don't see an answer and I don't have time to continue searching. I'm evaluating whether to us LO or not. Type 1 fonts may not be important to most business users, but I am a graphic designer and they are very important to me. I live in a world where font metrics do matter.

Please, short answer, YES or NO.

And really, if you are a graphics designer you shouldn't rely on outdated and inferior font technology.
