Description azolotkov 2005-03-16 03:43:39 UTC
When typing a line in Japanese, certain kanji are not displayed. When I type
"watashi ha gakusei" 私は学生, kanji for "gaku", the third character from the
left, is ommited and a blank space takes its. When I select all, copy, and paste
into another application, the kanji is there. When I paste back into oowriter,
it is gone again. This used to happen in older version 1.1.2 as well. I use
kinput2+canna for my input, but the copy+paste observation suggests that input
doesn't matter. Changing fonts does not solve the problem. This happens to more
kanji than just "gaku" - if necessary I can try to find others.

Looks fine at my side.

You should have set the Asian document language to "Japanese" at
"Tools/Options/Language Settings". Confirm with ok.

Again open "Tools/Options" go to " Writer/Basic Fonts (Asian)" and
hit the "Default" button.
Now the problem shouldn't show up in *new* Writer documents any more.

The above described procedure normally should happen automatically but doesn't
work due to issue 32939.

At my side the Sazanami fonts are chosen, but that depends on the fonts you
actually have installed.
