Description Rainer Bielefeld 2007-01-22 06:43:57 UTC
This is a "spin off" for Issue 49126
Now we have the requested preview, but it seems that it only works reliable if
the characters are marked (highlighted), pls see
Sometimes it also worked for me with "2.1.0  German version WIN XP:
[680m6(Build9095)]"  when the caret was between 2 unmarked characters, but
sometimes even not, and also user jeongkyu saw that non working. 

Related to  Issue 53590?

SBA: In general...
 - When characters are selected, then these shall be displayed in the
format-character-font preview window in the respective font.
 - When no characters are selected, then the font name shall be displayed in there.
 - There are fonts (i.e. symbol fonts) that can not display their name because
they do not have any characters.
SBA->ES: Please proceed.

ES->OS: ehen the cursor is placed (without selection) in an Asian or CTL text
one can expect that the preview will show the corresponding Asian or CTL font name.
But th preview falls back to the western font name.
Maybe this because, without selection, the cursor doesn't "know" where it is?
