Well Tom,
I do my best to create a new thread, and not reply to an older thread, when I ask my question.

I know I created a new thread with my question, so I still think the two threads had very similar titles and either my memory is confused or someone else's, SINCE the titles are so close.

There are some issues with font drop-down menus in one way to get to its display, do not show the other way the drop-down menu is gotten to.

For me it did not show all the fonts after 50 or so listings. For the other user it seems that certain font types are not showing up for some their fonts. STILL they are both the same concern of our fonts are not ALL showing up.

We both have concerns, one seemed fixed and one seems to still be an issue with my testing for 3.5.4.

Hi :)
Probably one of you guys did a "Reply to" and then re-wrote the subject-line to ask a new question. Either that or someone is doing too much typing and possibly ill or hazy and getting confused about which thread they were writing too when they wrote that first line. Since Tim is quite prolific here my money would be on him. If it's the subject-line issue then i would be betting on Alon.

It is much nicer if people can start a new thread for a new question by
writing their own fresh email and copy&pasting the address of the
Users List into the "To" field instead of accidentally hijacking a
thread. Confusion and newness happens [shrugs] no big deal. Hopefully all of us are new at something and learning new tricks. :) So, don't worry either way around.
Regards from
Tom :)

I am confused.
I am the original poster... and the one who made the spelling thank
you for draw my attention to this, sorry about that.
As far as I am concerned with fixed Gentoo ebuild that installs the
*.afm the type1 culmus fonts are shown in the drop down and working.

As the original poster, including the misspelled title, the problem was not
the drop down menu on the toolbar, but the menu with highlighting and
right-clicking to choose the font for that section.  That is where only the
first 50, 75, or whatever, fonts show up and the rest are not shown at all.

So for the original posting, it is not solved.  For the Type-1 fonts issue
you seemed to have it may have been solved, but not of the original

Solved, thanks to NoOp hint, figured out that *.afm are missing at Gentoo.
Font is working, although no preview in drop down as in the font I
converted to TTF.
But this is great!

Thanks to all.

I opened an old document of mine which used the culmus fonts[1], more
precisely the "Frank Ruehl CLM" font. So I guess it used to work back
then in openoffice.

Although the font is installed on the system, the document is not
presented using that font, and the font not listed at the font

I then discovered that a lot of fonts are absent from the selection.

Is there any way to use these fonts within a document? It is very
important as these font for example are complete Hebrew fonts, most
other fonts out there supports only the basics.

Perhaps I'm missing the picture, but when I install culmus fonts (from
my distro Ubuntu - culmus and culmus-fancy) I get:

$ ls /usr/share/fonts/truetype/culmus
DavidCLM-BoldItalic.ttf        MiriamMonoCLM-BoldOblique.ttf
DavidCLM-Bold.ttf              MiriamMonoCLM-Bold.ttf
DavidCLM-MediumItalic.ttf      MiriamMonoCLM-BookOblique.ttf
DavidCLM-Medium.ttf            MiriamMonoCLM-Book.ttf
HadasimCLM-BoldOblique.ttf     SimpleCLM-BoldOblique.ttf
HadasimCLM-Bold.ttf            SimpleCLM-Bold.ttf
HadasimCLM-RegularOblique.ttf  SimpleCLM-MediumOblique.ttf
HadasimCLM-Regular.ttf         SimpleCLM-Medium.ttf
MiriamCLM-Bold.ttf             StamAshkenazCLM.ttf
MiriamCLM-Book.ttf             StamSefaradCLM.ttf


$ locate FrankRueh

Those fonts show up just fine for me in LO
Build ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80
And AOO 3.4.0.
Are you sue you see the Frank Ruehl font at the font drop down?
