Description eziomartello 2010-06-27 14:19:38 UTC
If the font Calibri is not present in the system (e.g. Win XP), I propose a
default replacement with Arial. 

Now the replacement, in my system, is made with a gothic font.

@ sba: 'font replacement': something for you?
Comment 3 2010-06-29 06:11:24 UTC
shows indeed that there is no explicit fallback known for Calibri on XP. The SansSerif-Attribute should 
have resulted in a fallback to a default-SansSerif font like Arial though.

Issue 110023 (fixed for OOo321 in CWS sw321bf01) could have resulted in the problem you saw, but only 
in Versions older than OOo321. Please confirm that the problem can be seen in the OOo 3.2.1 official

Comment 5 2010-06-29 12:11:36 UTC
Interesting... Please provide a small bugdoc too. If the fontname was misspelled this could explain some 
of the trouble.

@udu: You can download the original document from this link:
Comment 7 2010-06-29 13:56:42 UTC
On my test-XP everything works as expected. Can anyone else reproduce the problem?
Other than that: Nice bugdoc... now we can plan better for the next two weeks ;-)
Comment 8 vitriol 2010-06-29 14:13:32 UTC
I can't reproduce, but I have Calibri installed on my only XP machine. It should
try without the font.
Comment 9 eziomartello 2010-06-29 17:12:44 UTC
An Italian OOo user wrote:
XP Pro SP3, OO.o aggiornatissimo, Calibri assente:

Caratteri gotici! 

I think that is comprehensible.
It is Italian language.
'Assente' is 'Not present'.
'Calibri assente' is 'Calibri not present'.
'Caratteri gotici' in English is 'Gothic Fonts'.

May be a localization problem?
Comment 10 eziomartello 2010-06-30 08:12:55 UTC
In my systhem the problem is present only whith gothici.tff font installed.

Fixed in CWS vcl113: the known fontsubst attributes are now used fully
Comment 15 tommy27 2010-07-01 19:45:18 UTC
I'm disappointed by target 3.4

I think It would be nice to see this fixed issue integrated in OOo 3.3

So would I, that's why I am lobbying for it with the release team:
