Description ulf.stroehler 2005-05-20 11:28:05 UTC
This is a follow-up issue to issue 47494.

Despite the enhancements made to VCL.xcu in issue 47494 the font suggestions for
the word export still doesn't seem to take effect in ms winword.

Repeating Naoyuki's evaluation in issue 47494:
I checked gslpatches cws (solsparc) but I can not see its effect, although it's
consistent with ssa and cms's comments. (Word own font substitution takes
precedence over document fallback hint)
Here is my observation:
1. made two doc files which uses HG *GothicB Sun, HG *MinchoL Sun with
gslpatches and normal m104.
2. open them separately with Word on Win2K which does not have HG *GothicB Sun nor 
    HG *MinchoL Sun.
Unfortunately Word uses MS Mincho for both of HG *GothicB Sun and HG *MinchoL
Sun with both doc files. (option->compatibility->fontsubstitution dialog shows
"Times New Roman" for all of 4 HG Mincho and Gothic fonts.)
I'm sure it's not user expected behaviour.
And when I re-import two docs with on the same Win2K, both of
docs are shown correctly (wiht MS Mincho and MS Gothic), so I can not tell this
fix takes effect in any sense. (OO.o knows HG GothicB Sun should be substituted
by MS Gothic, so doc's hint is not nessesally in this case.)
So I believe the ideal "default" substitution at exporting to MS docs seems to
be for primary font (like HG GothicB Sun -> MS  Gothic) not just giving a
fallback hint to Word. [...] "

US->HDU: the last sentence from Naoyuki suggests to substitute the primary font
on export. Hence you may wish to transfer this issue to the filter team.

Considering the effort, the priority, the risk and our resource planning I've to
retarget this issue to OOo Later.
