I have some Writer documents which were created on another machine. I have printed and circulated them, and now wish to make changes. I discover that the main body text font has been substituted, but I don't know what font has been used as the substitute. I would like to set the main body text font to the one which is being used now, so that (a) new text is consistent with the existing text and (b) I don't generate formatting changes to the parts of the documents which have not been changed.

The only way I know of right now to identify a substituted font is to export to PDF,
and then use your PDF viewer to identify the font used in the text.
For example ... highlight text, right-click, select font info.

There are some discussions in the bug lists about enhancing the substitutions interface.
This would include actually identifying the substituted font in the interface.
