Wrong font for Hebrew text in RTF: minimal reproducer
In the attachment, the only defined font in the RTF is Times New Roman. It is applied to all the text in the document, and Word shows all the text (both Russian and Hebrew) using TNR. But when opened in LibreOffice, the Hebrew font is shown using the font defined in Options→LibreOffice Writer→Basic Fonts (CTL). Replacing \f1 in \pard with \loch\f1\hich\af1 fixes the problem, so apparently LibreOffice does not treat \fN as setting font for all language variants, just for Western languages, despite "Associated Character Properties" chapter in  tells:
> Although RTF defines a broad variety of associated character properties,
> any implementation may choose not to implement a particular associated
> character property and share the property between the Latin and Arabic
which implies that associated character properties are optional, and in the absence of those, standard properties (like \fN) should be used for all language variants.

Dear Mike Kaganski,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
