Description jpka 2014-01-08 08:28:48 UTC
This is a copy of LibreOffice bug but reproduced on Apache OpenOffice.

Problem description: 
Changing UI (User interface) font via font substitution not work in version "AOO401m5(Build:9714)  -  Rev. 1524958 Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1", but known to work in OpenOffice 3.2.1 and all versions before it, include OpenOffice 1.1.5.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Read how to change UI font
2. Select 'Andale sans UI' at left, and say 'Freemono' at right
3. Apply (add or update) rule
4. Reload program and see nothing changes in UI font.
5. Try to check and uncheck 'Use system font for user UI' and see nothing changes again. Font used for UI always same, unknown, and wrong.
6. Try to do it with OpenOffice 3.2.1 and see UI font changes.

Current behavior:
UI font not changes via font substitution.

Expected behavior:
UI font should be changeable.

Please note, i report about LTS version of Ubuntu ("Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS").

Additional reading:

Operating System: Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS 32-bit, Gnome Classic 2.x, Unity removed.

Can not reproduce (used Gentium Basic as replacement font).

Font replacement and switch "Use system font for user interface" works well with AOO410m1(Build:9750)r1554205 on Windows 7. The internal font is still "Andale Sans UI". It seems to be a problem with Ubuntu.
