Example of Font Preview not shown

When you click the font drop-down in Writer, fonts are only rendered with a default typeface, it does not show the font style.


"Show Preview of Fonts" is checked.

I can not confirm with LO, win7
Comment 2 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2015-11-05 03:09:02 UTC
Does disabling OpenGL (Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View) make any difference for you?
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2015-11-07 15:50:04 UTC
For me also not reproducible with LO, Win 8.1
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2015-11-11 12:07:06 UTC
Hmm.. I actually remember seeing this today while working, but now I can't see it. OpenGL on/off, no diff.
