      Description

      The documentation for QFontMetrics::boundingRect and QFontMetrics::tightBoundingRect include this sentence:

      If you want to know the advance width of the string (to layout a set of strings next to each other), use width() instead.

      It uses the word "layout" as if it is a verb. It should instead say "to lay out".
