Hi. I detect a bug in LibreOffice version 188.8.131.52 on Fedora 24 X64.
When I write a document by LibreOffice containing Arabic characters in ITALIC (sloping) font, then the resulted PDF that generated by "Export to PDF" option in LibreOffice will show contents as if it was no any italic fonts contents !! I mean that exporter does not recognize italic for Arabic contents.
I attached 2 files:
- docx file (docx-italic-Arabic) which has contents in Arabic & ALL being in italic font.
- PDF resulted from exportation of docx. file to PDF. Look how contents appear in PDF in non-italic font.
Please notice the following:
1) This issue does not effect Latin characters. I already test English with italic font & every thing is normal.
2) I do not know if this bug existing in version 5.2.2 of LibreOffice because it is still not available in Fedora repositories.
3) I can not test this issue on Windows because "italic Arabic" already have a bug on Windows BUT NOT ON LINUX. Please see bug 87532
4) Again bug 87532 only effect Windows NOT LINUX.

Please your kind care to this bug.
So this issue only happens with text that uses the substitution/fallback arabic font for rendering, but doesnt happen with actual arabic fonts like Droid Arabic Naskh, mry_KacstQurn, and KacstQurn.

Hi. I test this issue on LO version 184.108.40.206 (fresh version) as AppImage downloaded from LO official site.
Bug still existing without any improvement & whether document is docx. or odt.
Output PDF still "ignore" italic format.
This only happens with a handful of Microsoft fonts (and possibly similar fonts) that has an italic fonts with partial character coverage compared to the Latin, specifically the italic styles of these fonts do not support Arabic and LibreOffice is failing to synthesize italic for thee unsupported characters when exporting to PDF.
Do you mean that it is impossible to fix this bug ?

No, it was just a clarification, since the bug description was too general than the actual issue. Font that has italic Arabic work, and fonts that has no italic at all also work. Hopefully this will help someone in finding the root of the issue.
