I was able to confirm and duplicate this behavior on my Windows 7 system using two different version of OOO Writer (3.3 and 3.4.1), and compared results to other competing products (MS Office Word, and LibreOffice Writer). Steps taken to reproduce: 1. Install Arabic Language for Windows 2. Uninstall any previous version of OpenOffice 3. Install the test version of OpenOffice 4. Launch OpenOffice Writer 5. Click Font Drop down from menu 6. Scroll down to find Arabic font (i.e Traditional Arabic) 7. Confirm that font drop down preview does not display font preview for selected font I have attached various screenshots of the issue under both versions of OpenOffice as well as the competing product demonstrating where the issue is not there. The screenshots include the "About" of each product, and I made sure I selected the font to make it easy to identify.
