Description of problem:
Redhat OpenOffice Builds choosing wrong display and printing font.
It displays and prints Times for Times New Roman. I believe the font
is stored correctly.
This bug exists in builds for both Core Builds for both Core 2 and 3.
I was hoping that it was fixed.
As far as I can tell, the bug affects OpenOffice only, and not other
x11/gtk aps such as The Gimp, and Abiword.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Didn't try, but exists in Core 2 and 3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install New Times Roman and other font to fonts:///
2. Type some text including 012345678980
3. Change Font of Selected text to New Times Roman.
4. Look carefully.
Actual Results: Notice the decended characters in 01234567890?
That font is (probably) not Times New Roman. It is Times, which seems
to be a printer font.
Expected Results: The font should be Times New Roman.
I contacted OpenOffice. They said the bug was unique to RedHat's Builds.
The Screenshots are still availible here:
Thanks : )
Sorry, My email address change didn't take.
I believe this bug is fixed in OpenOffice 1.1.3...if it will ever be
rebuilt for Core 3
I noticed that the bug affects users and not root. When I load or
print the same doument as root it's fine.
Also the 1.1.2 on Fedora has a spellchecker lag bug that does not exit
in other distros.
Could you please roll up a OpenOffice 1.1.3 rpm and release it to the
And now with 1.1.3 that's available in fc3-updates ?
