Thanks for the reply.

Would you tell us if it is a 
.ttf, .otf, or some other font "extension" type.

It is .ttf

I do not have "Calibri Light", just "normal", italic, bold, and
bold-italic.  All of them are .ttf

Initally all I had in that family was the same ones as you had then found the
Light version which actually is Light and Light Italic.

There was a similar font listing bug last year or early this year.  I do
not remember which version it was that had the missing font in that Mac

Is there any reason why could cannot use 4.0.5 or 4.0.6, till the font
issues are worked out?

I can continue using 4.0.5 just fine, just wanted to upgrade and found the

I had a problem with the font scroll-down dialog box for the fonts in
4.1.2 [Ubuntu 64-bit], which was a show-stopper for me, but I am
perfectly happy to still use 4.0.5 or 4.0.6 till they get the bug fixes

Just to through this out,

can you copy the font in the "internal" font folder for LO?  I know that
there is a folder in Ubuntu/Debian for LO fonts


There are 69 fonts and a file called "fc_local.conf" in that folder.

So I wonder if your Mac has a similar "root" folder for LibreOffice,
there might be a place there to copy that font to so it is within LO's
"internal" list of fonts and not looking for the "font folder" that
shares fonts with all of the installed packages.

Same thing on the Mac. Same files in that folder also. I tried adding the
font files to that directory with no joy. Probably needs some process to
"install" so it can see them.

Guess I'll have to file a bug as it makes no sense to have the font appear in
one version and not in the other.

Reminder: This is on a Mac with OSx Lion (10.7.5).

Sorry for replying to my own message, but I finally rebooted and no help. I
removed the whole family of fonts and reinstalled them and still LO 4.1..3.2
will not recognize Calibri Light. This is mind boggling to me since, as far
as I can see, it sees all the other installed fonts. This may sound strange,
but without this font I cannot use this version. This is a key font in a
newsletter I publish.

Please, if anyone has any ideas what can be done to make this work speak up.
I would very much like to upgrade to the version, but can't with this

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.


Hi Y'all,

I have been using LO 4.0.5 for some time and just installed Opened a
document that I had been doing in 4.0.5 and found that doesn't see
one of my fonts, Calibri Light. It doesn't appear in the list of fonts at
all. Only the base Calibri appears. In 4.0.5 both the base and the Light
appear as separate fonts in the font dropdown list. I'm running OSx 10.7.5 on
a MacBook Pro. Checked via the Font Book app and Calibri Light appears
normally. Validated the font and no problems were found. Interestingly
Calibri Light was the last font I have installed. Even reinstalled it. I
would normally reboot to make sure something wasn't just funny that would be
corrected by rebooting, but can't do that right now. Ideas anyone?
