Description coragryph 2007-07-29 18:14:52 UTC
Writer seems unable to find or recognize new fonts that have been installed. The
new fonts show up in other applications, and in the Windows Font list.

Sometimes, Writer will recognize a font after I have used in a different
application. For example, closing Write, starting up MSWord (new document),
using the font once (not even saving), then re-opening Writer will sometimes
cause Writer to now see the font.

Do you have closed quickstarter and then reopen OOo?

Do you have already restarted the PC?
Comment 2 coragryph 2007-07-29 19:11:06 UTC
Rebooting Windows works.

Closing and restarting OO Quickstart (when all OO apps are closed) also works.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2007-07-30 10:15:13 UTC
Yeah, OOo (incl. its Quickstarter) must be restarted in order to recognize new
fonts on the system.
Reopening issue to mark it as duplicate.
