This is the original file that I was working on. It doesn't remember the font because its extension is pptx. (50.70 KB, application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation)

Description benkyearn 2018-11-07 22:50:29 UTC
Description:
I'm using LibreOffice 6.1 on Linux Mint 17. I would like to create a presentation using Impress. I set the font to Droid Arabic Naskh. Then, I save it as .pptx and close the file. When I open it again, the font is changed automatically to DejaVu Sans. This issue doesn't happen when I save the file as .odp. Is it a bug or something? How can I solve it? I'm writing in Arabic language.


How to reproduce:

1. Open impress.
2. Write some Arabic text like يسوع المسيح or you can copy this sentence.
3. Set the font to (Droid Arabic Naskh).
4. Save the file as .pptx.
5. Close (Exit) impress. 
6. Double click on the file to reopen it. You will see that the font is changed automatically.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open impress.
2. Write some Arabic text like يسوع المسيح or you can copy this sentence.
3. Set the font to (Droid Arabic Naskh).
4. Save the file as .pptx.
5. Close (Exit) impress. 
6. Double click on the file to reopen it. You will see that the font is changed automatically.

Actual Results:
Automatic font resting/changing

Expected Results:
The font should be saved or remembered.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
I didn't resent my UserProfile and IDK if OpenGL is enabled or not.

Also confirmed with Hebrew rather than Arabic text.

Note: Bug manifests both when changing the font of a selected stretch of text within a box, as well as when selecting the box itself.
