Description Omshivaprakash H L 2013-11-22 11:12:17 UTC
If you try to start typing a document by choosing any of the Kannada (kn) fonts (Lohit Kannada, Kedage, Mallige) just after the second character Font selection gets reset to "Lohit Hindi". This is quite irritating as we can't choose a font and start the document. It would drive away new users adopting LibreOffice. Please help resolving this asap.

I too tested this with libreoffice in Fedora 19 and this exists.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new document
2. Turn on the any Kannada input method
3. Change the fonts to Lohit Kannada
4. Start typing any characters.

Actual Results:
After the second character, the font automatically changes to Lohit Devanagari, the characters appear in Kannada.

Expected Results:
Font should not get reset to Lohit Devanagari.
