Scrolling through fonts in writer and calc crashes the app. Using Windows 7 and LO I think this is a bug just for me though :p. Can't imagine that being a bug getting through the testing. Might be a font of mine doing some weird stuff. Is there a place where i can deactivate certain fonts used in LO? I have a CAD app that uses its own fonts so i dont want to damage that.

You might try:
Menu Tools → Options → LibreOffice → View →
Font Lists
☐ Show preview of fonts (disabled).

That does work. Thank you LO no longer crashes when scrolling through the fonts. Though it cripples the preview feature. Therefor I implemented the solution I mentioned.
