1. Create a calc document;
2. Select some empty cells;
3. Choose a font other than Arial, e.g., Arial Black;
4. Input text in these cells;           //You can see the font is not Arial 
Black, but Arial.
5. Select the texts input just now;     // You can see the font name in the 
tool bar changed to Arial.

I cannot confirm it, neither with hard formatting nor with applying a style.
When I enter text in step 4, it gets the chosen font. OOo 2.3.1 is rather old
now. Please try it again with an actual version. I have used DEV300m53 on WinXP.

Feel free to reopen the issue, if you see the error again.

Hi regina,
Thanks for confirm this issue.
I tried in OOo3.0 under Ubuntu and DEV300m53 under Windows, the problem still
I'll attach a video to show the behavior in OOo3.0 under Ubuntu.
You can see I selected an area and formated the font to Purisa, and I clicked on
a cell, you can see the font name is Purisa. And I input ASDF in A2 and B5. You
can see the font name changes to Liberation Sans when I input. I clicked other
cells, the font names are still Purisa. And I click A2 and B5, font name is
Liberation Sans, not the font i set, Purisa.

Under Windows, the behavior is more intersting. the font name is not update when
inputting. Click oter cell, and back to A2 and B5, the font names are changed to
Arial. But if you click into the cell(Edit mode), the font name is displayed as
chosen font. Place cusor between the characters, the font name displayed as
chosen font too. Now select the characters, the font name is displayed as Arial.
Actually, the font is Arial, not the chosen font.

I have no handy screen recorder under windows. So I can't attach the video. Do
you have any software of this kind to recommend?
