Hi All,

During this week's design meeting, the discussion about changing the default font in Impress to Source Sans Pro (tdf#97577) was discussed further and i felt that changing the default font in only one app isnt good when we are trying to bring more and more consistency between apps and suggested we change the default in all the apps.

In LibO 4.2, we changed from Arial and Times New Roman to Liberation Sans and Liberation Serif and its worth evaluating the available open source font families to find better replacements. The replacement should ideally have a wider unicode coverage and should look better both on screen and print. I collected the following options that i thought are possible replacements.

1. Droid Family - used on Android, available in Google Docs, available in ubuntu 12.04 & debian 6-backports -

2. Noto Family - droid derivative to fully cover all scripts in unicode, available in ubuntu 14.04 & debian 7 -

3. Caladea, Carlito - bundled with LibO, metric compatible with MS Office default fonts, available in ubuntu 14.04 & debian 7-backports
