Description sforbes 2004-12-23 12:50:33 UTC
Attached is a simpple file created with OOo M65.
In the document, titles where set to DavidMF, and list1 was set to FrankRuhlMF-
both via styles.
In additon, the body text in the first slide was set to Arial (regular) via
direct formatting.

The file was exported as PPT 2000/xp/2003, and opened in PPT 2003 on the same
computer (with all the fonts available).

Are the fonts, both set via styles, and those set via direct formatting, where
lost, and replaced with Arial Unicode MS.

Double checked with 1.1.0- this does not happen there.

I can reproduce the bug.
Please have a look.
Comment 7 sven.jacobi 2005-03-21 15:46:45 UTC
Because of following font substitution the fontname is replaced:
Comment 8 2005-03-23 15:01:30 UTC
HDU->SJ: as we saw during the PPT export the fonts for asian text and for
complex text got mixed up...
Comment 9 2005-04-05 13:53:10 UTC
forgot to reassign...

Because of a too huge workload I can't fix this issue for OOo 2.01 -> changed
target to OO Later.

Have you been able to look at this PPT export font issue?

Comment 14 alan 2006-09-05 18:13:13 UTC

I've a attached a patch which seems to fix the problem. Could you review it? A
fix for this bug is important for Hebrew users.
Comment 15 sven.jacobi 2006-09-06 17:25:48 UTC
sj: this issue now has been fixed in cws [vcl65] . I had to modify the applied
patch because it forces the filter to export complex fonts only, but this breaks
the export of Asia fonts.
Now the script type of the corresponding text portion is being detected by the
i18n BreakIterator, I hope this solves all problems.
Comment 16 sven.jacobi 2006-09-08 12:13:10 UTC
sj->cgu: this issue is ready to be verified in cws[vcl65]
Comment 17 christian.guenther 2006-09-22 13:48:48 UTC
CGU: Verified in cws vcl65
Comment 18 alan 2006-11-10 11:23:11 UTC
I had to add the attached patch to get the font weight and posture to be
exported correctly. I only handled complex fonts, not asian fonts.

For properly exporting CTL font weight and posture
Comment 20 2006-11-17 08:21:11 UTC
@ayaninger: after a CWS is integrated it is not a good idea to appending to the
CWS's resolved issues. The issue status becomes ambiguous and so new comments in
it are easily overlooked. I suggest to file a followup issue.

@sj: you probably overlooked Alan's latest patch and comments
Comment 21 christian.guenther 2006-11-17 09:13:28 UTC
Issue 71649 is a following issue for this issue.
Comment 22 christian.guenther 2006-11-17 15:33:41 UTC
CGU: Integrated in src680m193 and OOE680m2
