Description Wastono 2019-11-16 12:55:43 UTC
I create, edit, and save document. Then I check/select option for embedding font on Font tab of Properties of "doc name" window. I accessed it from File - Properties menu.

After I change the options, I click OK. But the save icon is not change. LibreOffice Writer does not save the changes.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit ODT file, then save the file.
2. Click File - Properties menu.
3. Click Font tab.
4. Change the options for Font embedding. Toggle the check of all options for Font embedding.
5. Click OK.

Actual Results:
Save icon does not change. Document modification status icon on status bar does not change. then when the application closed, the file size is not changed.

Expected Results:
Save icon and document modification status icon should change into 'need to be saved' icons. So user knows that document needs to be saved.

Then when saved, font that needed to be embedded is really already embedded; or font that needed to be removed is really removed from file (based on check or uncheck of options). So the file size changed.

Reproducible: Always
