Description dsikioa 2014-05-06 11:38:01 UTC
When trying to use a form from like "Kotimaan näyttelyilmoittaumislomake", some of the content is anything but readable on AOO 4.0.1 for Linux (as well as on LibreOffice 4.2.3 on Windows 7). There are Word, RTF and PDF versions avail, so it is easy to compare, how it should look.

Using Linux-32, AOO411m1(Build:9770)  -  Rev. 1604099

 I opened the first document in this list in "doc" format-- Kotimaan näyttelyilmoittaumislomake -- without any issues. I suspect these docs were scanned with software that could produce the output formats available on the page. Using the sizing slider made reading the text much easier. I think the fonts used in the forms are not directly available to the end user.

The easiest way to resolve this issue is to use the slider -- text magnification -- in the lower right hand corner to make viewing easier, or perhaps choose the PDF format of these docs and, depending on your pdf viewing software, you may be able to make font substitutions.

Will wait on further comments before closing this out.

In my opinion this is not an OpenOffice problem.
