I installed Version: (x64) on Windows 7 and can't see the Windows fonts, just the ones installed by Libre Office. How do I make Libre Office Writer see the Windows fonts installed in c:\Windows\Fonts ???

Have you checked that the fonts are actually in the Fonts folder?
I just tested and - both seem to work fine.
What specific fonts are you using (which I could test)?

Actually LO only see fonts that are in %windir%/Fonts on Windows.

There has been mush work recently (incl. since 5.2.4) related to fonts handling. The mail goal was to unify fonts and text handling across platforms, and support for legacy raster fonts was removed; also, device fonts support was temporarily removed in 5.2.4 and returned in 5.2.5. So, in theory, you should see any non-legacy font installed on your system (majority of default fonts, and also of all available fonts), unless you made extensive changes to your system, or if you have some specific settings that show some hidden bug in LO.

Nope, my error. I though I had installed my quite large font collection on all my computers, but I never gotten around to doing so on this machine. Thanks.
