I have a new installation of LibreOffice 5.2 on Windows 10. If I start an Opendocument text file from the main LibreOffice desktop icon I have no font previews in the font dropdowns. I have font previews turned on. If I start a document from a newly created file on the desktop I have font previews in the dropdowns. If I open a previously created document I usually have font preview. About the only time font previews do not show is when starting from the desktop Icon and choosing a text document.

I assume you have gone Tools > Options > OO > View ..., and ticked Show Preview and Show History.

What fonts do you see when you go to C:\Windows\Fonts?

r-click the desktop icon > Properties. What exe file is being started by the icon?
