Bug ID: 115664
Summary: Arial Unicode font issue?
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
OS: Linux (All)
I have a set of .doc files that get passed between Word on Windows 10 and
LibreOffice Writer 126.96.36.199 on Ubuntu. For the most part everything works fine.
However, one of the documents recently got munged up after a big edit session
on Windows. I can see and edit the document fine on Windows, but when I open it
in Writer, several things are wrong. The first thing I noticed was that the
left and right arrow keys were operating backwards (right arrow moves left,
etc.). Then I noticed that lines of text with punctuation marks at the end of
the line were displaying with the punctuation at the beginning of the line. I
also noticed some end-of-lines indicated "Arial Unicode MS" as the font, which
seemed wrong to me as I had never asked for that. Going back to Word, all the
end-of-lines indicate "Times" which is what the majority of the text is.
Also note I have reset my user profile to factory settings. Also note that
copying and pasting the text to a new document in Writer cures the problem, but
loses all my other (desired) formatting. I've attached a small sample extract
which demonstrates the problem for me. Any ideas on how to fix this and avoid
it happening in the future?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached .doc file and try the arrow keys.
2. Note the "?What went wrong" should read "What went wrong?"
arrow keys move cursor backwards
1. arrow keys should move as indicated
2. "?" should appear at the end of the line.
