Hi Marc,

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I should first ask if you open a doc that has text formatted as
Calibri Light,  what font is it being shown as under, what is
the provenance of the Calibri Light,   have you confirmed that the font
is available for all uses and all users, and whether it is not only
activated but enabled (two different things).

Have tried a document formatted with Calibri Light and just a blank new doc.
Calibri Light does not show up in the dropdown font list at the top of the
page in LO In the document itself the text formatted with Calibri
Light shows Calibri Light in italics at the top of the LO window indicating
that LO doesn't find the font and is substituting another font. Same doc in
LO 4.0.5 shows Calibri Light in the dropdown list as well as correctly using
the font in the document.

I am the only user on the machine. I have checked that it is available,
enabled and verified using the OSx Font Book app. that comes with OSx. I went
so far as to remove the whole Calibri Font family from the system, rebooted
and verified it was gone then reinstalled the Calibri Family again. The
symptoms after that were  identical to before.

Seems to me that if one version sees the font that it is available to the
system and the issue has to be with LO

Then I might suggest logging out of your account on the subject machine,
logging in with a new account, creating a new document, checking the
default font, and then typing some text and try to format it as calibri
Light. This should resolve all questions as to whether the issue has
something to do with your pre-existing preferences, non-availability as
a system, font, etc.

If no joy, download Scrivener, install and test and see if Calibri Light
shows up and is usable. If not,  then there is an issue with your font, 
if it does then you may be looking at a bug....

Opened OpenOffice and it sees the font just fine. Actually it sees better
that LO 4.0.5 in that it shows Calibri Light and Calibri Light Italic in the
font list. LO 4.0.5 only shows Calibri Light.

Time for a bug report it seems to me.

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?
