Description Andy 2021-05-07 07:48:44 UTC
Description:
Since upgrading from LibreOffice 7.0.2 or 7.0.3 to LibreOffice 7.0.5 Liberation Serif font does not display in previously created docs (except for punctuation marks). The same happens on a clean Windows 10 and LibreOffice installation. When Liberation font was upgraded to the latest 7.1.4 version, some letters show but only in bold, regular do not show except punctuation marks. If the same document is opened in OnlyOffice, the whole text shows fine. In addition, when I start typing using Liberation in a newly created document, the text does not show until I change it to any other font.

This error applies to Cyrillic characters. Latin characters work fine.

You may not set New yourself.
Sample document is needed.

I cannot provide any proof now. I needed to use the software for work and couldn't wait for LibreOffice to find and patch the bug. I experimented and found that Liberation Serif Regular v 1.0.3 (with Italic, Bold and Bold Italic left newer 2.1.4) works and makes Cyrillic regular font visible in both old and new documents.

So we can only change status to NEEDINFO and wait if you'll can provide some example for testing. If you can't then devs can't fix it too =(
