Description Tim Waugh 2003-06-19 06:31:24 EDT
Description of problem:
In Nimbus Roman No 9 L, and URW Bookman, the bold variants are not working.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start OpenOffice.org
2. Start typing
3. Click on the 'bold' button.
4. Resume typing

5. Open nautilus at fonts:///
Actual results:

i can reproduce it with "Nimbus Roman No 9 L", but "Urw Bookman l" works fine
for me.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2003-06-20 08:12:20 EDT
it seems that n021024l has wrong Weight. I have fixed this font in 2.1-2. It
should work now.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-06-21 04:28:53 EDT
That's worse.  Now there's no 'Regular', just bold.
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2003-06-23 04:12:28 EDT
Hmm, it works fine for me both in koffice and oowriter with this 2.1-2 !
which font did you mean here?
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2003-06-23 04:19:26 EDT
it's fixed in 2.1-2
Comment 6 Miloš Komarčević 2003-07-11 08:46:51 EDT
I'm also seeing bold only Nimbus Roman No9 L with 2.1-2, no regular.
This is for example in OOwriter, Mozilla and Gnome font preferences.
Also there seems to be no Bold (i.e. Medium) Italic listed for Nimbus Roman No9 L
in Gnome font preferences.
I also have only bold Bookman and Palatino in OOwriter.
Comment 7 Miloš Komarčević 2003-07-27 16:38:53 EDT
And now in 2.1-4.1 Nimbus Roman No9 L regular is fine,
but italic is bolded.
