Description bwcarver 2003-09-06 14:14:26 UTC
I created a document in OO 1.1RC3 on Debian, saved as Word 97 format, and when viewed in Word 97 on Win 98SE the quotation marks are all displayed as little black blobs and the formatting of the third page was lost. The third (and final) page's spacing switched from double to single spacing and the paragraph indentation was lost. I used Courier 12 and had a footer that included page # and page count. If I could figure out how to attach the doc to this bug, I would just show you. Otherwise, I'll e-mail you the file in question if you ask for it. (This problem was only discovered after the file was shared with a supervisor, so this is embarrasing!)

Comment 5 michael.ruess 2003-09-23 12:05:56 UTC
Problem regarding wrong line spacing at the end of the doc will be fixed in OO 2.0 (checked with internel pre-Alpha build).
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2003-09-23 12:06:50 UTC
MRU->CMC: when I open the attached file with OO on Win XP, the custom quotes are al replaced by a wrong symbol.
Comment 8 caolanm 2003-09-24 11:22:02 UTC
Not a filter problem, the font "Courier" does't have the correct quote characters. While I have "Courier" installed on my machine, under the same circumstance word substitutes "Courier New" for "Courier". So this is something for our vcl font substitution people to look at.
Comment 9 michael.ruess 2003-09-25 11:42:21 UTC
MRU->US: Is there already an isse regarding font substitution for these fonts?
Comment 10 ulf.stroehler 2004-07-20 17:14:50 UTC
Hmm, seems that we still fail to do a suitable GlyphFallback for smart quotes with Courier in src680_m47.8795 on win32 systems. Anyway I consider this to be a minor issue, unless we don't get massive votes for this issue. us->hdu: you know what I mean: "won't fix" as there is surely "bigger fish to catch".
Comment 11 ulf.stroehler 2004-07-26 18:11:33 UTC
Lowering prio and target.
Comment 12 firstname.lastname@example.org 2004-10-22 14:38:07 UTC
Yes, for those friggin bitmap fonts we do not calculate their complete unicode coverage, so glyph fallback is never triggered when they are involved...
