I just updated LO and when I started creating a document the Papyrus font had vanished. It is possible that others are gone too as I don't have the complete list.

I welcome any fixes and ideas on how to solve this problem.

EDIT I should add that I did searches for fonts and found nothing helpful. I don't ask questions until I search first. Where did this nonsense about knowing nothing about LO and my OS come from? I help people all the time with tech issues and when I don't know something I go to where people know what I am looking for and find things out the fast way. There is no need to get personal here.

@mariosv -- Could you link to a specific question? When I search for 'fonts' I don't see an obvious answer to @Apollo702's problem.

@qubit, because is easier for she/he to find if there is a right answer than for anyone who knows nothing about their OS and LibreOffice version?. And she/he can learn about font issues, while looking for an answer. I guess, not a problem a little effort from their side to find a solution.

The "papyrus.ttf" font
(installed in C:\Windows\Fonts)
is available (for me, on WinXP), e.g. via

  • Formatting toolbar → "Font Name" drop-down list
  • Menu "Format → Character → Font"


The font is not available via right-click context menu "Font"
due to → Bug 34085 - [EDITING] [UI] List of fonts incomplete in context menu.

[Checked with LibreOffice 3.3.4, 3.4.6, 3.5.7, 3.6.4, 4.0.0 RC1]

Can't find the font on my Win7 64-bit box. Is it included in the LO installation? Bug 34085 seems fixed, I have 193 fonts installed and all show up in LO3.6.4.

@horst : "Is it included in the LO installation?" — (1) No, → papyrus.ttf isn't included. See also → how can I get more fonts

@horst : "Bug 34085 seems fixed,..." — Is it really a bug? OOo bug 61775 → has been fixed with the solution "Now only 100 (maximum) fonts will displayed." (comment #25). — 100 fonts are displayed in my LO context menu (A... – Liberation Mono).

@manj_k My install shows all 193 fonts. I vaguely remenber that there was a limitation of registered fonts in WinXP which might have been dropped in Win7.

Addendum: Papayrus Font is installed on my Win7 32-bit laptop. MSWorks installed it which came free on this machine. Also all 190 installed fonts show up.
