Description Eyal Rozenberg 2020-04-09 12:01:42 UTC
I'm working in LO writer on a document which originally was a DOCX file but has undergone a lot of edits - in LO writer. In this document there's a paragraph of Hebrew text in the Default Style, no custom formatting, containing a number. When I view the file in LO (e.g., I see the Hebrew-font glyphs for the number; but if I open it in MS Word, I see the English-font glyphs.

If I then add text is MS Word, save and reopen - the added number glyphs use the Hebrew font both in LO and MS Office.


* This is a rather old bug, it's quite likely it has a duplicate I couldn't find.
* I don't get this behavior if I start with a brand-new document.

Steps to Reproduce:
See above

Actual Results:
See above

Expected Results:
See above

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Should get the Hebrew glyphs in both applications.

Document exhibiting the bug

The digit glyphs in the attached document should appear in Times New Roman font when opened in MS Word, but in David font in LO Writer.
