Name Description
PANGO_GRAVITY_HINT_NATURAL

scripts will take their natural gravity based on the base gravity and the script. This is the default.

PANGO_GRAVITY_HINT_STRONG

always use the base gravity set, regardless of the script.

PANGO_GRAVITY_HINT_LINE

for scripts not in their natural direction (eg. Latin in East gravity), choose per-script gravity such that every script respects the line progression. This means, Latin and Arabic will take opposite gravities and both flow top-to-bottom for example.
