Description Joe Smith 2003-07-31 19:56:45 UTC
My document created with earlier OOo (1.0.2 or maybe 1.1b1) contains characters
in the "Symbol" (TTF) font.  Where it displayed and printed perfectly in
previous versions (up to 1.1b), with 1.1rc2 it displays correctly, but prints
incorrectly (rather than greek symbols, I get roman).

This makes RC2 unusable for me.

I will attach some screenshots and a sample document.

jw: reassigend to jw

please check this in OOo1.1RC3
Comment 5 Joe Smith 2003-09-04 14:40:42 UTC
jw> please check this in OOo1.1RC3

Exact same results in RC3.

Could this be a font replacement issue?  I see there is no symbol font
in the replacement list (via spadmin, not OOo:tools/options).

(Ob FAQ) Is there any way to tell for sure what binary I'm running? 
Help/About does not distinguish different builds in the same branch.

Comment 8 ulf.stroehler 2003-12-19 12:34:05 UTC
The "Symbol" font issue is clearly fixed in OOo 1.1.

But the bugdoc further contains a "Standard Symbol" which is an XFont (Display
font) that can not be printed.

The problem here is that the "Insert->Special Character" Dialog offers Fonts,
that would never be offered in Writer, because they can not be printed. This is

Will log a follow-up to target above mentioned inconsistency.
