Bug ID: 119192
Summary: Expanded Font Name on Text Formatting toolbar
incorrect: Linux Libertine Display G
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
OS: Linux (All)
1. Font Name drop-down on the Text Formatting toolbar does not show correct
2. Copy/Paste font only copies formatting for 2 characters.
Steps to Reproduce:
After reading a reddit entry on multiple ways to add equations, I started
researching advanced font features. It was an entry in the LO 6.1 release
In the link above, a site was mentioned, and I used a document from that site
for experimenting: http://numbertext.org/linux/Lively_Alphabet.odp
All examples use: Lively_Alphabet.odp
When I clicked in the slide's text box for the word "FireFly", the Font Name
drop-down showed "Linux Libertine Display G". I hovered over the Font Name
drop-down to see the popup text. It simply said, "Font Name". This worked as
However, when I clicked inside the Font Name drop-down, the "Linux Libertine
Display G" was not in the display. The first font in the list was a font I used
in a previous LibreOffice session. I expected to see "Linux Libertine Display
Still in Impress, I positioned the cursor at the beginning of the word
"Firefly". Using the right arrow key, I moved one character at a time. I
watched the Font Name drop-down box. The value did not change. Worked as
expected. But what was not expected, it changes in Writer. See next step.
I highlighted the text and clicked ctrl-c to copy the word "Firefly", and then
selected File > New > Text Document. In the new Writer document, I typed
ctrl-v to paste the word "Firefly".
I repeated the step where I positioned the cursor at the beginning of the word
"Firefly". The Font Name was initially correct (same as in the Impress
document). As I moved the cursor to the right, the Font Name in the drop-down
changed and became italic. I only moved two characters right, "F" & "i", before
this occurred. I hovered over the Font Name drop-down and the popup said,
"Current font is not available". I continued right and the font remained
I expected the entire word, "Firefly" to be "Linux Libertine Display G", like
it was in Impress.
I did create a new slide in Impress and copy/pasted the word, and did the same
test, and the entire word was "Linux Libertine Display G". It was only when I
copied it to Writer that only 2 letters had that format.
I opened the same Impress document in 22.214.171.124 and immediately I could see the
font name in the Font Name drop-down box was Italic. When I did the
copy/paste, the two character issue was the same, plus something really weird
happened to F11 Styles and Formatting. By weird, I mean garbage styles.
Unrecognizable text. This did not happen in 126.96.36.199.

Environment: LM 17.3, LibreOffice 188.8.131.52
1. "Linux Libertine Display G" did not appear in the Font Name drop-down.
2. Only the first two characters of a word, that was copied from Impress to
Writer, had the correct formatting.
3. Only in 184.108.40.206, when word was copied from Impress to Writer, unrecognizable
Style Formats were created (F11).
1. When the Font Name drop-down arrow was clicked, expected to see "Linux
Libertine Display G".
2. When the word was copied from the Impress text box and pasted in a newly
created Writer document, that the entire word's formatting would be copied too.
3. 220.127.116.11 to work like 18.104.22.168, which did not create unrecognizable style
