       I wish you well in finding an answer to your question re. fonts.

       I've been wondering re. a similar issue pertaining to fonts -
            on this present computer, all the script-fonts seem to be
                 I wish I knew how to retrieve these from the past since I
really liked using some of these.

I am wondering if Libre Office has a separate set of fonts from the
system, or at least some of the fonts.

I'll explain my problem.

If I have a look at Character Map to find a character that I want (let's
it is an aeroplane), I can find it in the Webdings font (Unicode 00d2, or
Ò). See screenshot 1:


But when I use that character in Libre Office and set the font to Webdings,
it shows a different character, specifically an in-box. See screenshot 2:


Note that not all characters do this. For example, the first 52 characters
(A-Z and a-z) are correct.

I would like to know how to solve this discrepancy, so that I can search
characters in Character Map (or an equivalent program) and then use them in
Libre Office. (I have tried an alternative program, Specimen Font Viewer,
and it shows the same thing as Character Map.)

I am using Linux Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit, fully updated) with Libre Office (installed directly from the Libre Office website).

Thank you.
