Description srgmskt 2020-01-15 09:09:27 UTC
Can't change fonts on GTK interface while working with MS office documents

Actual Results:
Hello! On Linux Mint 19.3 installed latest version of LibreOffice
MS fonts also installed on the system at:
While working with .doc, .docx and other MS Office doccuments I can't change fonts. The fonts list is totally empty, it shows only current font in italic style, e.g. Times New Roman.
Sometimes it is possible to change fonts via Paragraph Menu (Right click -> Paragraph -> Change Style -> Fonts), but it is not convenient way and sometimes even this doesn't work.
I noticed that the bug appears only with GTK interface and without GTK interface everything is ok. But I prefer GTK because I can scale the icons of menu on HDR monitors. 

Expected Results:
Fonts can be changed freely

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes
