Whenever I create or work on a document I use only a very limited set of fonts. On my system (linux/kubuntu) I have any number of fonts installed for various purposes, 99% (or thereabouts) of which I don't use in my document.
It would greatly improve the usability (mine and probably most people's) if I could configure which font (families) I can select from the font dialogue.
I know about styles and their goodness, but very often choosing a font for a specific selection of text is more convenient than using styles.
Obviously, a relatively easy method should be available to show all fonts on the system, a gesture and a quick toggle in the list or menu ("font filter" on/off)

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:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
In my version of libreoffice 3.5.4 I still see no improvement (too many fonts)
I suppose you need to clean up old bugs, but closing this one 4 times is overdoing it a little... ;-)
Anyway, I still think this would be a great improvement for usability!
Yep that would be a nice improvement (PS: I sent this message only once ;) )

Adding needsUXEval and some CC users to ask the UX team for input if this is possible and desirable and how it could be realized.
Fully agree on this. Personally I remove as many fonts as possible from my system as 'solution' for this issue - and still have the annoying D050000L, Z003, C059 etc. We need some kind of 'hide this font' feature, where a tree allows to exclude all variants of a family. Could be merged into the Tools > Options > Fonts replacement table. Would do a mockup when a dev is interested.
(Dealing with missing fonts has been discussed here https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2016/10/21/dealing-with-missing-fonts/)
This is a duplicate of bug 88416 which has more info in it along with screenshots. A smaller default font list is mentioned in bug 91130.
