[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Comment 4 Christopher M. Penalver 2012-01-04 01:12:12 UTC
Michael Lueck, unreproducible in:
LOdev 3.5.0beta2 
Build ID: 8589e48-760cc4d-f39cf3d-1b2857e-60db978
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002

Please reopen this bug if reproducible in LOdev 3.5.0beta2+.
Comment 5 Marcel Stimberg 2012-01-28 00:06:07 UTC
This bug seems to be Linux specific, it is still reproducible with LibreOffice 3.5.0beta2 (1:3.5.0~beta2-2ubuntu4 in Ubuntu 12.04)
Comment 6 Michael Meeks 2012-01-28 02:04:27 UTC
We have an internal duplicate of this:


And Thorsten is working on it; reproduced in 3.5 and master  looks like cairo using slightly different (and wrong) font substitutions / settings. Our sample - using "Nimbus Roman No9 L" is very obviously a different font.

I very much believe this is a duplicate of a now fixed bug.
