Title: HPGL output text labels are out of alignment
Submitter: Al Tobey

Version: 1.8.10
System: x86-Linux-Redhat 8.0 & 7.3
Severity: minor
Problem:
I have no idea what flags I used as I generated the graph from perl. The graphs all look fine when output as png, jpeg, postscript, etc., but the HPGL comes out with bad text alignment. I printed to an HP DesignJet 250C, and it looks like the left side of the text starts at the center of the box.

It looks correct in bitmap formats - here's what it should look like:

|                                    |
|  This is a description of a node   |

Email me for more info. I have verified the problem using an HPGL viewer (CERN HPGLVIEW).
