Hello A.,

In Windows we depend on GDI+ to do the measurement of text. In Linux we are entirely relying on libgdiplus to do the same measurements and we layout the report items according to the resulting measurements. Unfortunately, there are discrepancies in measuring between GDI+ and libgdiplus which is the reason for the defects shown in the provided screenshots. To improve this behavior we will be researching and testing other libraries to do the needed measurements.
