quite evidently, we should be able to see a text in live font preview mode...
I thought this was a working functionality...
it seems like we had it before... 
I remember using it...

in any case, we need it.. 
need it back :)

Thank you for reporting the bug. It seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ? I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

Rule of thumb is search in existing bugs before reporting. 
This seems another duplicate of bug 37048.
