Result of AOO 4.0.1 and 4.1.1 and Pages 4.3

AOO 4.0.1 had 9 errors using "Helvetica Neue"-font on MacOS X 10.9.5
AOO 4.1.1 fixed most of them, but forgot to fix 2 of them.

Tested only on MacOS X 10.9.5, German language

The font set "Helvetica Neue" has 14 fonts/styles. AOO 4.0.1 knows only 12 of them, AOO knows 13.

Refer to the attached PDF (and PNGs) to see the results of AOO 4.0.1, AOO 4.1.1 and Apple Pages 4.3 are shown. 

Font 5, Helvetica Neue Halbfett / Medium is not listed and therefore not useable.
Font 7, Helvetica Neue Condesed Bold is selectable, but uses font 6, Fett / Bold and switches to font 6, Fett / Bold.

Not as important: The names of some fonts should changed to the names stored in the font (location, german) as it was in 4.0.1 (but be aware, in 4.0.1 4 fonts was interchanged!). 

Font 1 UltraLight -> Extrafein
Font 2 Thin -> Extraschmal
Font 3 Light -> Fein
Font 4 Standard -> Normal
Font 5 should be named as: Halbfett
Font 6 Fett -> Fett
Font 7 Condensed Bold -> Schmal, Fett
Font 8 Condensed Black -> Schmal, Sehr fett
Font 9 UltraLight Italic -> Extrafein, Kursiv
Font 10 Thin Italic -> Thin Italic (fault of the names in the font)
Font 11 Light Kursiv -> Fein, Kursiv
Font 12 Kursiv -> Kursiv
Font 13 Medium Italic -> Medium Italic (fault of the names in the font)
Font 14 Fett, Kursiv -> Fett, Kursiv

"Helvetica Neue" is a commercial font and not provided by default with AOO.
So, it's difficult reproduce without buying.

Sounds like this old issue 89486

Helvetica Neue is included in MacOS X.

In 10.6 (Lion) and 10.7 (Snow Leopard) there are 11 typefaces.

In 10.9 (Maverick), using for reporting this issue, there are 14 typefaces:

In 10.10 (Yosemite) Helvetica Neue becomes to be the system font.

It seems to be necessary, that a developer should have at least MacOS 10.9 (or maybe 10.8 has also 14 typefaces(?)).

No, I don't think so. Maybe they have some common problems, but 89486 is talking about other problems.

I think, that someone recognized the problems in 4.0.1 and fixed just a part of them (and worsen the font-naming), and forgot two problems to fix. Because  4.0.1 has 9 errors, 4.1.1 only 2 of them, as described above.


Note: how the attachments was build:
Example AOO 4.1.1.odt: written in AOO 4.1.1
Example AOO 4.0.1.odt: opened Example AOO 4.1.1.odt with AOO 4.0.1 and checked the font names in AOO 4.0.1 and changed the font names in the text as they are. (As a result you can see, that in AOO 4.0.1 the fonts 1+2 and 9+10 was interchanged.)
Example Pages 4.3.pages: written in Pages 4.3
Export to PDF within each program version.
Opened the PDFs, exported them to png (to be independent from fonts).
Combined all PDFs to the first attachment.

Typeface in AOO

Typeface Really LT Com was installed with font styles Medium, Medium Italic, Demi, and Demi Italic, however in AOO only Medium Italic and Demi are displayed.

Typeface in TextEdit

In TextEdit you can see exemplarily that font style Medium is installed (likewise with Demi Italic).
Comment 12 Rainer Lange 2018-11-15 13:53:24 UTC
I have this phenomenon with some more fonts, but I can’t see any rule this fault obeys. I will illustrate it by one example; note the enclosed attachments. In such case the buttons Bold and Italic don’t work well. Here neither of them has an effect.
Comment 13 Peter 2018-11-16 03:22:04 UTC
What version of OpenOffice do you use?
Comment 14 Rainer Lange 2018-11-16 14:15:00 UTC
The results are the same with AOO415m1 (Build: 9789) - Rev. 1817496 and AOO420m1 (Build: 9800) - Rev. 1827249 either.
