Description Kevin Suo 2019-11-16 10:16:42 UTC
There is no vertical scrollbar in the font family dropdown list. (In writer: Format -> Character -> Font; In Calc: Format -> Cells -> Font)

This makes it difficult to find a font needed. This may be a regression, it worked some years ago.

Can not confirm on Windows builds. The 'Font' tab's listbox shows a v.scrollbar.

This seems to be a linux GTK3 only bug. The scroll bar is there with GTK2 build, but not there with GTK3.
Comment 3 Kevin Suo 2020-01-05 09:39:50 UTC
Actually there is no scrollbar for all the drop-down lists on this dialog.

Created attachment 156937 [details]

This is a screenshot showing the problem.

Its a native gtk combobox, that's how native gtk menus operate in general, so problems with that would have to be submitted to gtk itself. FWIW typeahead is supported so typing the initial letters of the known font will jump to it.
Comment 6 Kevin Suo 2020-01-06 11:22:55 UTC
Just for your information:

The “appears-as-list” style property

  “appears-as-list”          gboolean

Whether dropdowns should look like lists rather than menus.

Flags: Read

Default value: FALSE

I am not sure, but maybe we can take a try?

Seems fixed in bug 131120, commit bc0e0f633b05c4f91b6695488fc9e5c127507ba5.
