1. Font Name drop-down on the Text Formatting toolbar does not show correct font
2. Copy/Paste font only copies formatting for 2 characters.
Steps to Reproduce:
After reading a reddit entry on multiple ways to add equations, I started researching advanced font features. It was an entry in the LO 6.1 release announcement thread.
In the link above, a site was mentioned, and I used a document from that site for experimenting: http://numbertext.org/linux/Lively_Alphabet.odp
All examples use: Lively_Alphabet.odp
When I clicked in the slide's text box for the word "FireFly", the Font Name drop-down showed "Linux Libertine Display G". I hovered over the Font Name drop-down to see the popup text. It simply said, "Font Name". This worked as expected.
However, when I clicked inside the Font Name drop-down, the "Linux Libertine Display G" was not in the display. The first font in the list was a font I used in a previous LibreOffice session. I expected to see "Linux Libertine Display G".
Still in Impress, I positioned the cursor at the beginning of the word "Firefly". Using the right arrow key, I moved one character at a time. I watched the Font Name drop-down box. The value did not change. Worked as expected. But what was not expected, it changes in Writer. See next step.
I highlighted the text and clicked ctrl-c to copy the word "Firefly", and then selected File > New > Text Document. In the new Writer document, I typed ctrl-v to paste the word "Firefly".
I repeated the step where I positioned the cursor at the beginning of the word "Firefly". The Font Name was initially correct (same as in the Impress document). As I moved the cursor to the right, the Font Name in the drop-down changed and became italic. I only moved two characters right, "F" & "i", before this occurred. I hovered over the Font Name drop-down and the popup said, "Current font is not available". I continued right and the font remained unavailable.
I expected the entire word, "Firefly" to be "Linux Libertine Display G", like it was in Impress.
I did create a new slide in Impress and copy/pasted the word, and did the same test, and the entire word was "Linux Libertine Display G". It was only when I copied it to Writer that only 2 letters had that format.
I opened the same Impress document in 220.127.116.11 and immediately I could see the font name in the Font Name drop-down box was Italic. When I did the copy/paste, the two character issue was the same, plus something really weird happened to F11 Styles and Formatting. By weird, I mean garbage styles. Unrecognizable text. This did not happen in 18.104.22.168.

Environment: LM 17.3, LibreOffice 22.214.171.124
1. "Linux Libertine Display G" did not appear in the Font Name drop-down.
2. Only the first two characters of a word, that was copied from Impress to Writer, had the correct formatting.
3. Only in 126.96.36.199, when word was copied from Impress to Writer, unrecognizable Style Formats were created (F11).
1. When the Font Name drop-down arrow was clicked, expected to see "Linux Libertine Display G".
2. When the word was copied from the Impress text box and pasted in a newly created Writer document, that the entire word's formatting would be copied too.
3. 188.8.131.52 to work like 184.108.40.206, which did not create unrecognizable style names.
User Profile Reset: No
OpenGL enabled: Yes
In LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 release on Windows 10:
1. I see in drop-down list correct name of font "Linux Libertine Display G"
2. If I copy Firefly from presentation to Writer, then really first symbol is "Linux Libertine Display G", but all another symbols are "Lohit Hindi", which doesn't install on my computer.
3. I didn't see style "Unrecognized text" in list of styles
ps: please will create new bugs differents for different problem. Don't need write about several problem in one bug. Thank you

4 screen captures of Font Name drop-down
Please see the attached image.
I did one more test. I moved my Libreoffice profile to a backup name and
restarted Libreoffice with a new profile. On linux the profile is kept:
I had to make three initial changes:
- Tools > Options > Libreoffice > View > Icon style: Elementary (Old: Breeze)
- View > Toolbars > Text Formatting (On)
- View > Toolbars > Drawing (Off)
When I clicked on the Font Name drop-down box, the font showed as
"Linux Libertine Display G". This was a different result.
However, since this was a new profile, there were no known font.
So I closed Impress and opened up Writer. I created two lines. The first line
was formatted with Bitstream Vera Sans, the second Arial, and then I saved the
document. I really didn't care what the fonts were, I just wanted some known
fonts. When you do this Libreoffice puts these fonts at the top of the font
list, separated from the entire list by a vertical bar.
Now I reopened the Lively_AlphabetonlyFirely.odp file and repeated the test.
The results were as originally reported. The Font Name drop-down box shows
"Linux Libertine Display G", but when you expand it, it did not.
The 2-character copy issue worked the same in all tests.
NOTE: When I moved my original profile back, all the recently used documents
were gone. I had to restore the user directory from a system backup.
mv user user.today
# Do libreoffice test
mv user.today user
# Recently used files gone
Correction: In the previous message
"separated from the entire list by a vertical bar."
"vertical bar" should have been "horizontal bar".

This is bug 92286.
For the 2nd issue:
If you open the style editor for Title in Impress, the CTL Font in the Font tab is "Lohit Hindi".
In the Writer pasted style, the Western font has changed to "Lohit Hindi" and CTL to Lib. Serif.
Repeating steps in shorter form:
1. Open http://numbertext.org/linux/Lively_Alphabet.odp
2. Copy the text Firefly from slide 8
3. Paste to Writer
