Description tinux 2010-01-27 21:38:33 UTC
1) open a new writer document
2) type some text
3) set font to Bitstream Vera sans
4) change style to either bold or italics -> the text disappears.

This behaviour occured only after upgrading to Mac OS X 10.6 "snow leopard",
since then in any version including 3.2rc4 I use right now, on Mac OS X 10.6.2.
I read somewhere that font handling changed a lot in snow leopard. There is
another font I used before the system now does not even accept. According to
Apple Font Book the Bitstream fonts are o.k, however.
Comment 1 tinux 2010-02-23 19:30:40 UTC
The issue seems to have to do something with the font chemical.ttf (available
here ). This font is
marked as broken or incomplete since Mac OS X 10.6. Any document containing
parts formatted with chemical.ttf is displayed or printed badly, see attachment.
This occurs even if the font is not installed on the system.

To reproduce error:

1) Open document test.odt
2) Select all, change font to Utopia
3) The omitted text should appear

Hope this helps...
