Mismached fonts in matc

Hi There,

I'm using libreoffice for years to write scientific text due to its fantastic formula editor.

I have just install libreoffice 4.2.5.2 with EN and HE languages on my new pc (win 8.1 operating in English but installed with Hebrew as well).

The problem is that when I type a new formula I get non regular characters instead of the ones I type.

For instance if I type the equal sign I get a floppy-disk icon in the display.

I though maybe the default Liberation font is not installed so I moved all fonts to Times New Roman as a result now I get a clock instead of = but also the font reserved word displays as a clock.

Note that I opened document written with previous version and the same happens.

Any idea what could be wrong?

Thanks, OrenG

I found the clock icon replaces the inverted question mark and if no error in my formula the equal sign is still replaced by the floppy-disk icon.

Note that I opened document written with previous version and the same happens.

Any idea what could be wrong?

p.s. I just tested LibreOffice 4.2.0.4 portable on the same system and same documents, there everything is normal so seems it's the new version or installation in cause.

Thanks, OrenG
