Description nadavkav 2008-02-21 22:41:18 UTC
after reading : http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Font-FAQ to figure out where the issue lyes, this is what i think is happening... when using a non-hebrew font (that has no hebrew glyphs) the wordart font-substitution engine does not change to some pre-defined hebrew supported font so it could display the glyphs like Writer's normal text engine does. using the "Font Replacement Table" with "my defined font substitutions" it works fine :-) BUT... i can not guess all the fonts out there ;-) here are two samples; using font "Andale Mono", some bizarre glyphs are located in the font table position where hebrew glyphs should be and this is the result: http://picasaweb.google.com/nadavkav/Screen_capture/photo#5169559106004389954 using font "Liberation Sans", no hebrew font table at all. so no glyphs are displayed : http://picasaweb.google.com/nadavkav/Screen_capture/photo#5169559106004389970 open type and true type correct hebrew fonts work fine :-) i saw old issue reports that i'm not sure if the were supposed to deal with this same issue: http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=70290 http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=16248

MRU->HDU: could you please have a look? When I open the attached document on my windows system, Hebrew glyphs in all objects look fine. When opening on my SUSE 10.2 system, both objects do not show correctly. Maybe even do not have a matching substitution font available...
Comment 5 nadavkav 2008-03-07 13:15:58 UTC
my guess is that "Word Art" engine is not using font-config to get font substitutions as does OO's "normal text" engine.

kaplan -> hdu : I can confirm the problem with Debian GNU/Linux and oo.org 2.4.0. I get the same result as described in the PDF. Please change status to NEW.
