Description sxeraverx 2009-08-10 13:25:05 UTC
When using "Fontin" (for example, maybe others work, too), creating text in bold
italic results in bold slanted roman type. This is not an issue with the font:
bold+italic results in a true-italic bold in at least Abiword, Firefox, and
everywhere in Gnome/GTK.

Steps to reproduce:

. Create a new document.
. Type text.
. Select text, turn on Bold and Italic at the same time
. Notice that the font is not actually bold italic, but slanted roman bold

Expected behavior:
. Resulting text should be in true-italic bold.

I reproduced the described behaviour with OOo 3.1RC1 and OOo 2.4.1.

But added as first step to reproduce:
. Install "Fontin" font (from

With "Fontin" bold+italic-text looks as described by sxeraverx. In Thunderbird
bold+italic looks fine. (See the Screenshot attached.)

With the Standard fonts in contrast true-italic works fine in OOo.
So I think, the issue is related with that special font, although Fontin is
true-italic in Firfox+Thunderbird.
