Description ousia 2004-01-11 14:27:41 UTC
If I try to change the font of one of the text styles, the missing characters of
this font aren't displayed as such, but are substituted into a different font
(such as Lucida Sans). There should be a method (in OOo options) to avoid this
automatic font substitution for missing chars on a given font.

Since this kind of substitution I want to have (for punctuation and other
characters missing from a font), I would prefer it as an option per document as

Comment 4 ulf.stroehler 2004-01-13 12:04:39 UTC
Currently a font substitution is configurable via
/Tools/Options/ The settings in here overrule the default
font substitution settings. 
Hint: in /Tools/Options/ it is even possible to define a
substitute for a non existing font.

But it sounds reasonable to also have an option to configure the glyph
substitution as well. Offering a dialog to change this on a per document basis
sounds as a good idea to me too.

US->MMP: as you already own suggestions to improve the above mentioned dialog,
pls. consider also this RFE when specifying a change.
Pls. come back to me and HDU for details.

To be clear/to avoid misunderstandings: 

An option to disable glyph-fallback is requested. 

i.e. instead of displaying the missing glyph using a different font OOo should
display a placeholder/defined replacement character (maybe the red upside-down
questionmark from math) when the requested option is checked.
