Description Urmas 2014-04-24 08:27:42 UTC
LibreOffice does not respect the user preference for hiding fonts via Windows Control Panel.

Sounds like a valid enhancement request to me -> NEW.

Kind regards,
Joren

Not so sure if we should be supporting such a feature when MSDN states, "In Windows 7, there are no APIs for directly querying which fonts are hidden, or for setting fonts to be hidden."

Not a UX question to me. Following comment 2 it's "not our bug", but keeping it open for dev eval.

NOTOURBUG per comment 2.
