Tried LO 4.2.1 this evening for the first time on my Mac with OSx 10.9.1. I
loaded a newsletter that I published last year because it was the type of
document that I often deal with. I found that the newsletter opens fine in LO
4.1.5, but does not load properly in 4.2.1 and also locks up when resizing a
frame. The Document is 2 columns with a Frame that goes across both columns
as well as a number of pictures in the columns.

Part of the issue is that the Calibre Light font in the frame that goes
partially across both columns is not found by LO as a separate font from
Calibre. For some reason LO after ver 4.0.5 does not parse the Calibre Light
font properly. I had this back in 4.1.3, 4.1.4 and now also 4.1.5. The
problem was discussed on this list back in November and a work around was
found, but that doesn't change the problem with 4.2.1. LO 4.1.5 handles the
unrecognized font just fine and the text still fits in the frame with the
substitution of what ever font LO comes up with, but 4.2.1 displays it larger
so it extends outside the frame and still has the problem with not
recognizing the font. I can make it fit by resizing the frame horizontally,
but then the other text is push around and doesn't fit properly on the page.
I was really hoping that the font recognizing problem would be fixed in
4.2.1, but obviously not. The problem is a known bug and I added my 2 cents
to it on the bugtracker back in November. It doesn't make sense to me that
the same document would load differently in the two versions since they use
the same user preferences.

Problem #2 is that when resizing the frame vertically LO 4.2.1 goes "bananas"
and makes the 3 page document a 5 page document and then locks up. I have to
"force quit" it to get out of it. This is a problem I've never seen before in

Has anyone seen either of these problems in 4.2.1? I know it is early in the
series so I expect some issues, but would like to know if they are only my
issues or what. Thanks.
