Linux Mint 19 32 bit I did a reinstall of Writer and the Base in Synaptic Manager with no improvement

Linux Mint 19 32 bit I did a reinstall of Writer and the Base in Synaptic Manager with no improvementimprovement (Solved) My best guess is that the problem was caused by my installing the 'Ttf-mscorefonts' fonts and the 'fonts-crosextra-carlito fonts-crosextra-caladea' fonts, as recommended in the web page '10 things to do first in Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon' (https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/mint-cinnamon-first) I uninstalled those font packages in Synaptic Manager and rebooted the OS and now many more fonts are showing up and typing produces results. It looks like loading the Microsoft fonts and the Crosextra fonts hosed up the access to fonts by Libre Writer. If this makes sense or there's something else that could have done this, please let me know. Thanks
