Description Harald Koester 2012-03-12 06:53:14 UTC
Problem description: 

To reproduce the problem:

[1] Start LibreOffice and open a new text document.
[2] Tools > Options... > LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Western)
[3] Click "Default". These fonts are now displayed: Times New Roman, Arial, 3 times Times New Roman.
[4] In order to display the installed fonts click on the down arrow of the Default font.
[5] Type in a letter. A font beginning with this letter is displayed. This font is also displayed for the Index font. The other 3 basic fonts are covered with the font list.
[6] 'Esc' or click into the Default font field: The Default font changes back to "Times New Roman". But the font for Index does not change back and also the fonts for List and Caption get the same wrong font like the Index font. 
Expected behaviour: Font "Times New Roman" for Default, List, Caption and Index.
[7] "OK" or "Cancel".
[8] Open options dialog again. Displayed fonts: Times New Roman, Arial, 3 times Times New Roman. This means only the display is wrong, the fonts have not been changed.

Comment 1 Kevin 2012-03-13 11:05:55 UTC
confirmed bug on Windows 7 64-bit running LibO 3.5.0rc3 (Build ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735)

The same issue afflicts the "Basic Fonts (Asian)" option.

In addition, although clicking the buttons "default" and "revert" will change it back to display correctly, just selecting different options to configure does not cause the display to revert.

... start after Harald's step [6]

[7] Click LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Asian)
[repeat steps 4-6 to cause the display bug]
[9] swap between "Basic Fonts (Western)" and (Asian) and the bug will continue to manifest itself in the display.

Clicking OK or Cancel will not change the values (meaning that it's only a dropdown list display bug?) - confirm by re-opening the options dialog.

> In LO under OS X 10.9.4 I see Tools but no "options".

I'm a bit irritated, what I mean is the standard options dialogue of LibreOffice. On my system (LO 4.0.3, Win7) I open this dialogue with "Tools > Options...". 

> Is this bug still valid / reproducible with the latest LO release?

In Version 4.0.3 there is a difference, the default basic fonts have been changed meanwhile: Liberation Serif, Liberation Sans, 3 times Liberation Serif. But the general problem still exists.

> Please also try resetting your user profile and let us know if that helps:

Profile deleted. The result is the same.
> Should this be still reproducible for you with the latest LO release please
> set this bug back to NEW. Should this issue be solved set it to WORKSFORME.

Problem still exists, hence set back to NEW.
