Description cno 2008-01-25 15:50:09 UTC

When I choose Officina Sans ITC TT as font, the Euro sign is not shown in the
document, nor in the print preview.
This works OK in 2.3.1

I'll attach a document with screenprints.

Comment 2 mike_hall 2008-01-25 17:27:05 UTC
Confirmed as regression with 2.3.0 v most recent 2.4 (Pavel's build) with fonts:
Perpetua Tiling MT
Another typewriter
Bodoni MT Black and some other Bodoni fonts
Copperplate Gothic Bold
Blue Highway D type
Brittanic Bold
Franklin Gothic Heavy and some other Franklin fonts
Gill Sans all fonts
Goudy Stout
Rockwell all fonts
Tw Cen all fonts

These fonts (on XP) are not all present on the PC with 2.3.0, but the € symbol
is displayed whether or not that PC has the font present. Probably the fonts are
at fault - haven't confirmed that - however there is a definite visual
regression to 2.4.
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2008-01-25 17:52:26 UTC
Cannot confirm. Bodoni MT Black, Broadway, Copperplate Gothic Bold, Gill Sans,
and Rockwell have the correct Euro sign, havn't got the other fonts.
Do you see the Euro sign at U+20AC in the special character dialog?
Comment 4 mike_hall 2008-01-25 23:14:23 UTC
No, there is no Euro sign at U+20AC for any of these fonts. Please ignore
Brittanic Bold, my mistake, but have just reconfirmed all the others.

On 2.3.0 the Euro sign is not in the Special Symbol list either, but the symbol
still shows and prints, so something must be creating a best substitute.

Will include some screen shots...

I confirm the regression in OOH680_m4 on Kubuntu :
I tried to type euro sign with a font "randomly" chosen. It was "Domestic
Manners" that does not contain Euro sign.
Euro sign is showed in 2.3.1 but not in OOH680_m4.
Comment 7 jbf.faure 2008-01-26 08:24:25 UTC
For some other font (Deluxe Duck) that does not contain Euro sign OOH680_m4
shows Euro sign but different from 2.3.1
Comment 8 cno 2008-01-26 11:17:29 UTC
Changed summary - was: "Euro Sign not shown with special font"
Comment 9 Regina Henschel 2008-01-26 12:27:57 UTC
I've tested a text with some mathematical characters in OOH680m4. There are only
placeholder rectangles, if the font do not contain them. They are shown in
OOo2.3.1 via glyph fallback. So glyph fallback is not broken only for Euro sign
but in general.
Comment 10 cno 2008-01-26 12:46:20 UTC
thanks for the (for me new) explanation of the meganism, Regina.
Set priority to P2
Comment 11 carsten.driesner 2008-01-28 08:59:03 UTC
cd->hdu: Please take over. Glyph fallback is your special area.
Comment 12 2008-01-28 15:18:23 UTC

Is this really on WinXP? Even on W2K "Franklin Gothic Heavy" had the Euro symbol.
Comment 13 2008-01-28 16:52:04 UTC
Fixed in CWS gfb4win.

@jbfaure: the *ubuntu case is something different: OOo was recently changed to use fontconfigs 
suggestions for glyph fallback  fonts. If there are problems with that please open a separate issue.
Comment 14 2008-01-29 10:03:52 UTC
@sba: please verify in CWS gfb4win
Comment 15 stefan.baltzer 2008-01-30 17:42:28 UTC
