If I try to change the font in a Fontwork object, I get a drop-down list of the available fonts, but the list only goes up to font names beginning with the letter "i" or thereabouts. I can change fonts with no problem, but only within the limited list. No matter what font I change to, the list stays the same.

I have about 227 fonts installed in Win7.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm using LibreOffice English Version: on a Win7 English laptop.

Partially answering my own question: I was only looking at the list of fonts when you right-click inside the Fontwork object. If I select the text within the object (making sure that what looks like an empty space at the end gets selected - not sure what that's all about), the font list at the top of the page lists all my installed fonts and works fine.

Problem solved. Don't know if the right-click thing is a bug, or what.
