reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)

@Markus: Could this maybe be something for you?
Comment 2 Markus Mohrhard 2014-07-30 21:39:21 UTC
Might just be that the dxf export does not support that feature yet. I only added some simple formatting attributes to the dxf export when I wrote it.
Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2015-04-09 04:18:14 UTC
So it is more complicated than that. My approach to dxf font export does not work at all.

In ODF it is quite simple as we use a style and use the existing style. For XLSX we need to export dxf entries that only contain differential formatting. While we save them internally as dxf we have currently no way to extract that information.

This will require some work to implement a correct dxf font export.
