    • Subcomponent:
      2d
    • CPU:
      x86_64
    • OS:
      windows_10

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Windows 10 10.0.17134 Build 17134
      Occurs using JDK and OpenJDK version 11.0.2
      Does not occur using JDK 8u201

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When calling Graphics2D.drawString() with a Font that should be ITALIC but does not have an installed italic font face, the text is rendered without an oblique style. When running with JDK 8, the italic font face is synthesized.

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 8u181

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Find an installed font that does not have an italic font face (Impact is a good choice for Windows)
      2. Create a new font object with the font from step 1 ( new Font("Impact", Font.ITALIC, 18); )
      3. Create or get a Graphics2D object ( bufferedImage.createGraphics() )
      4. set the font from step 2 on the graphics object from step 3 ( g.setFont(font) )
      5. draw a String ( g.drawString(...) )

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The displayed text has an oblique style.
      ACTUAL -
      The displayed text is not oblique and instead appears like it was rendered as Font.PLAIN (or Font.BOLD when bold italic is desired).
