Subject Re: TLF - Leader dots
Date Thu, 28 Dec 2017 12:32:41 GMT
Leader dots are a hard one.

Ideally, the FTE should support leader dots in TextLines. Unfortunately, that’s not a feature
FTW supports, so the only way to draw dot leaders would be to use the BackgroundManager to
draw them. Getting the correct location, size etc. of the leader dots is not a simple problem.
