the messed up formula examples page
(actually version 126.96.36.199 but not listed, so I selected 188.8.131.52 rc)
the formula rendering now shows strange symbols instead of brackets and other signs. I made a screenshot
Steps to reproduce:
1. open new formula document.
letter icon instead of +
mailbox icon instead of /
arrows instead of multiplication and division
telephone icons instead of brackets ()
and so on
you got the idea. see the screenshot.

Would it be possible you attach the original file so we can reproduce quickly the problem by using this link https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?bugid=86013&action=enter?

what do you mean by "original file"?
open a new formula document with libreoffice 184.108.40.206 and look at the "Elements Dock",
you will see like the png image I have attached to this report, else it would be strange..

the difference at first sight
Please tell us your operating system. And in case of a Linux system, what distribution and whether you have got LibreOffice via this distribution.
It looks as if a wrong font is used. Please write a formula in a pure formula document (.odf), which shows this wrong characters and attach the file here. While writing the formula look into Format > Fonts which fonts are listed there and add that information. Please look, whether these fonts are actually installed on your PC.
Do you have the "OpenSymbol" font installed?

odf formula file with examples of wrong characters
OS: Windows 7 64bit
FONT: Cambria. But I tried various others. They are installed.
Note that the screenshot "the difference at first sight" is made with LibreOfficePortable 220.127.116.11 on the left, and LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 on the right, on the same operating system.
Problem apparently solved: i have installed the "OpenSymbol" font, now the formulas in all my odt documents are rendered correctly.
respirosso: great your problem is solved! :-)
Andras: could OpenSymbol be included in LO package or could it be a prerequisite for Windows install?
