Description jiayanmin 2009-12-03 02:02:10 UTC
Moving the caret into the text which is displayed by the fallback font, the family name of the fallback font will not be selected in the font list box. Please refer to the graphic in my attachment. The font used to diaplay the text should be consistent with the one in the list box as the behavior of MS office. It's time to re-consider the font setting during text formatting. Please refer to issue 107030.

I'm not sure this is a duplicate to 45128. The edit-field in the font-selection box shows the font that is requested by the user or the document for this text. What issue 45128 wants is e.g. a separate UI- element that shows there is a discrepancy between the requested and used fonts. What yanminjia wants is to replace the "requested font" UI-element in todays OOo by an "actually-used font" UI-element. The "discrepancy-indicator" would still be needed. And another UI-element would be needed where one can adjust the requested font. So I see this issue as a different suggestion from 45128: deemphasize the requested font, emphasize the actually-used font.

Reassigning this interesting user interface question to the UX team.

yanminjia->hdu Thank you for your explanation of my point. It's a UX design problem essentially. From my viewpoint, I prefer "actually-used font" to "request font" in the edit-field of the font-selection box. On the other hand, it's incorrect to depend on the "request font" but not the "actually-used font" for text height calculation. Please refer to the issue 107030 I filed.
