Description Brenda EM 2004-11-14 02:05:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

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):
OpenOffice 1.1.2-11.5

How reproducible:
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.

Additional info:

I contacted OpenOffice. They said the bug was unique to RedHat's Builds.

The Screenshots are still availible here:

Sorry, My email address change didn't take.
Comment 3 Brenda EM 2004-12-01 16:04:01 EST
I believe this bug is fixed in OpenOffice 1.1.3...if it will ever be
rebuilt for Core 3
Comment 4 Brenda EM 2004-12-09 16:16:50 EST
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
yum servers.

And now with 1.1.3 that's available in fc3-updates ?
