A screenshot of the described problem.

Problem description: A text in the font Century Schoolbook L is displayed all right in the editor, but when I start the slideshow, the font becomes very thin: the letters are narrow and there's a lot of space between them.
Please see screenshot.

Thanks for bugreport
Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible

Strange. How Linux specific bug is duplicate to Windows specific bug?
But let will hope that it indeed fixed.
Comment 7 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-04-02 02:10:37 UTC
A user named "sasha" forgot to modify OS after confirmation in Comment 4 - and we all, too ;-)

Reporter's screenshot IMHO shows the Bug 46901 problem, I can't tell whether there is an additional "L" problem for Linux; For WIN the Bug 46901 problem does not match with the Version 3.3.4 you set here. But My Ubuntu LibO 3.4.4 (VirtualBox) shows the SLIDESHOW hardware acceleration problem good visible in text, more or less invisible in Heading of test case presentation. I  WIN LibO 3.4.5 the problem definitively does not exist. May be the problem appeared more early in Linux?  May be you can contribute some additional information?
Comment 8 sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-02 02:51:19 UTC
Sorry for my previous comment. I will retest it in next version of LO
Comment 9 sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-04 07:30:37 UTC
reproduced in on Fedora 64 bit, Hardware acceleration only bug

Screenshots show Problem with Ubuntu LibO

I did those creenshots from Ubuhtu with LibO 3.4.4 (VirtualBox), you see normal character View in edit mode and too narrow ones in SLIDEWHOW with hardware acceleration
Comment 11 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-04-04 09:50:01 UTC
Reopened due to my results in "Screenshots show Problem with Ubuntu LibO". Looks very similar to symptoms in Bug 46901, but it started far before 3.5 (so different roots) and it seems still in 3.5.2 due to Comment 9

What did you reproduce? A "narrow L" problem or more or less all text with too narrow letters?

Please set Status to ASSIGNED and add yourself to "Assigned To" if you accept this Bug.

Comment 13 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-04-04 23:50:26 UTC
Yes, that's exactly the problem I see.

The problem is not limited to "Century Schoolbook L", I additionally see it with "Nimbus Sans L", "URW Palladio L", "Courier 10 pitch", but not with "Nimbus Sans" and "Ubuntu mono Right" (others not tested).
"Standar Symbols L" shows an other problem, there the letters are shown bold in a strange way.
Comment 14 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-10-14 06:39:56 UTC
I listed this one under <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/WikiAction/edit/HardHacks#In_Review_Process>

What was our latest result? This particular one Linux only? Please correct version picker if I remember that wrongly!
Please always mention Version you used for tests, your " screenshot of presentation in slideshow mode on Fedora 64 bit, hardware accel. enabled" is not very useful if we do not know with what version you did the test. Still reproducible with 3.6.3?

I see the problem with LibO on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (Virtualbox), but not with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 Beta0  - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [Build:ef91e38-b1d4df6-090bcba-45cf606-05891e7]"

You know, I used to have this bug in the early 3.4 series, but I do not have it anymore.

Comment 19 info.kalsan 2015-01-05 20:01:49 UTC
I am unable to reproduce the bug because I changed my operating system and I'm using different fonts now.
