Description Unknown 2002-04-26 08:35:35 UTC
When I've opened some M$ Word documment, then all equations are displayed 
incorrectly. Documments are made by Word 2000.

TL->CMC: Can you have a look in this. Maybe it's a new version of 
MathType which we currently do not support?
At least I think I remember having heard sth like that once some time

Well I have no problem with a recent 641 build, this is reported with
a 605 which is very old now. If you (Artur) still have the problem
with a recent build please attach an example document to this
bugreport. Until then I'll have to mark this as working for me.

Hmm, I've checked wrong version number, I'm using OpenOffice 641, and 
this problem exists, but now I think that I have bad fonts or 
something. I have new installation of OpenOffice (it is my first 
contact with this product), so IMHO it should be usable, but maybe 
I've forgot something. 
In attachment IÂ’ve added bitmap to show how it is looks like , and 
simple file generated by M$ Word.

Ok I get the same problem with your sample document. 

That's not a word document with an equation in it. Thats an rtf
document with a picture of an equation in it. A vector graphic.
Someplace along the line the font being used to draw the characters by
OOo is either the wrong one, or does not exist and word's font
substition or something of that nature is working better than ours. 

I'll see about extracting the graphic and seeing if its an issue for
the graphics team, or if the rtf font substition has any bearing on it.

Comment 8 caolanm 2002-05-08 18:22:09 UTC
cmc->sj: The last attachment is a wmf which, when inserted in word,
looks fine. But seems to use a different incorrect font or something
when inserted in writer :-(

I will check how we can fix this bug

This is probably a completely wrong guess, but I wonder if the vcl
CreateFontToSubsFontConverter used to convert common ms symbol fonts
to starsymbol might be useful here ? In writer we its used to convert
many unfound symbols in missing ms symbolfonts to starsymbol, so our
bullets look ok under X where we don't have wingdings etc, wmf
import doesn't seem to do this sort of substitution for me.

For .doc bullet export i'm considering a reverse conversion using
those same tables in vcl/gdi/fontcvt.cxx to search for a possible
symbol font and position in common ms fonts that match a given
starsymbol position, it would solve our problems of exporting bullets
to word, and might also be usable as a temporary hack around the
problems of using wmf as ole previews for the equation font. Embedding
fonts would be better, but in the short term this might be a workaround.
