Description meywer 2008-04-01 23:13:53 UTC
It will be difficult to follow the one-problem-one-issue rule.

Using opensuse10.2 and openoffice2.3.1 and dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.16 i could choose
dejavu sans condensed as a font.

Using opensuse10.3 and openoffice2.4 and any dejavu i cannot. 

So my templates with dejavu sans condensed are somehow invalid. OO uses another
font instead (I don't know which one, see issue 45128 please).

I can only choose dejavu sans and than specify font-style/typeface condensed
(Format - Zeichen - Schrift - Schriftschnitt).

I thought it could be a hint to define font replacement
dejavue sans condensed -> dejavu sans + typeface condensed, but that's not
possible - in the fonts-replacement-dialog there is no possibility for that.
(Extras - Optionen - - Schriftarten)

(See also 86410.)

Another problem is, that I didn't find a typeface-chooser (not only icon, but
field like for the font) for the panel (Symbolleiste). (Extras  - Anpassen -

Also the font dejavu sans condensed could be combined with the typeface italic,
so I think it's a bad idea to make the font dejavu sans condensed a font dejavu
sans with typeface condensed. (ok, bold and italic can be combined too)

There are typeface-choosers and shortcuts for italic, Kapitälchen, bold.
[durchgestrichen/unterstrichen are Schrifteffekt, but therefore i find shortcuts
and choosers too.] But for condensed there is no shortcut nor chooser...

And than there is the problem, that I don't know, how all those menu-entries are
named in english, cause my german OO doesn't allow me to switch to an english
gui (and I don't want to install an english one beside and i don't find an
english-gui packet seperately). So I think, every OO-should contain english
(which is the base for bug reports) beside to the particular language. 
(possibility to switch via Extras - Spracheinstellungen - Sprachen -

Conclusion: add typeface-setting field (chooser) to format-panel and possibility
for shortcuts for condensed and other
