Description Urmas 2012-12-15 08:31:05 UTC
Font tab of Character Format dialog has a warning label about TrueType/screen fonts. It is not clear which font it does refer to (there is three lists of fonts and each one can have several semicolon-separated alternatives listed.) 
Stop copying Microsoft design slavishly.

I can not see.
LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7)

Can you detail your OS,
and attach an screenshot where to see the warning label.
Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2012-12-20 21:22:16 UTC
I actually removed that label, mostly because it was unclear as to what font it referred to. Which is why  mariosv can't see it. I've now restored it because of bug 58373 where it was wanted back. So the problem of "what font is it talking about" is back again with tools->options->language->CTL/CJK on.

I'll give each category its own label. Which at least solves that issue.
FWIW that font-warning-label is around for approx a decade I think.
