Description Yang Fan 2014-06-27 15:45:25 UTC
I select some cells, intending to change the font.
When i released the scrollbar of the font Combobox, the list of fonts freshed in few seconds. I cannot choose the font i want.
Comment 1 Yang Fan 2014-06-27 15:51:42 UTC
The bug occured when the text of selection are in diffrent fonts.

Hello Yang,

I attempted to reproduce this issue both on Linux and Windows with 4.3.0 and wasnt able to. If you are still using 4.3.0 beta 1, i encourage you to upgrade to 4.3.0 rc 1 and see if the problem is still there. If it is still there, please provide a sample document along with instructions on how to reproduce the error.

Test case for the bug.

Open the attachment(学习计划-副本.xls).It's written in Chinese.
Select both D4 and D5. Two cells use different fonts.
Then, try to change the font.

I tried in rc. The bug appeared again.
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-07-02 14:56:14 UTC
I selected D4 and D5 and i opened the font drop down menu and the list was available and i could select another font. Can you send in a screenshot of who it looks for you.
Comment 5 Maxim Monastirsky 2014-07-03 12:26:39 UTC
I'm able to reproduce the bug with under Windows 7 & Linux Mint 17:

1. Select D4 (and note that the combo box text field is empty).
2. Open the drop-down and scroll the list using the mouse wheel
   - OR -
   Scroll using the scrollbar to some position, and move the pointer over the list.

This seems to be related to the fact that D4 contains both Western and Asian text, each of them using a different font (that's why the text field is empty, I guess). I'm able to reproduce the same with a cell containing Western & CTL text or Asian & CTL text. I'm not able to reproduce this with a cell containing a text of one kind of language (e.g. only Western), even though it uses several fonts.

The attachment is the video of the bug.
May be it's related to the font preview.

Thanks Yang for the screencast. Yes i can confirm it on 4.2.5 on Linux Mint. I wasnt able to reproduce it previously as i was mistakenly selecting D4 and D5. :)
