* note: i request you to share yourexperience for resolving issues ifopened ms office document 
looks or displays drastically or minor differenton debian gnu/linux or any linux distro. here i 
will share my recent experience about how i resolved issues on debian.
my recent two bugs were closed asNOTABUG([1] & [2]). both of them were closed due to font used by 
created were  not installed on my device. in both cases dev suggested about missing fonts on my 
facts: * lo substitutes if the fontis not installed with which documentis created is not found on 
your device * due to substituted font sometimesor every time document looks differentlycompared to 
how it looks on office * lo shows font name **italiced** if not installed on device (dev onbugzilla 
informed about it)
assumption * assumed all office fonts are installed(see NOTABUG  2), i was lucky here.
issue * office doc was created with Comic Sans MS font
how i resolved: ** $ sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer ** open doc and it looks exactly as 
in office
facts: * layout of doc changed due to absence of font used in document * lo shows font name 
**italiced** if not installed on device (dev onbugzilla informed about it) * Calibri font is not 
available ondebian, but  fonts-crosextra-carlitopackage provides metric-compatible with Calibri 
assumption: * i installed ttf-mscorefonts-installerand all fonts used by office are installed on my 
device, but Calibri font is not included in ttf-mscorefonts-installer package[3]
issue: * office doc was created with Calibri font
how i resolved: * dev suggested to install Carlito font * $ sudo apt install fonts-crosextra-carlito
## common to both bugs * how to check your desired font is available on your device:  ** $ fc-list 
| grep -i fontname (substitutefont name with your desired font) *** tip for the above command: ex:  
correct: Comic_Sans_MS_font incorrect: Comic Sans MS font * how find which font or fonts areused 
for creating docx file without opening in office or office comptabileviewer or editor: ** s1 - 
unarchive oe extract docx using yourinstalled archive manager or package ** s2 - search & open 
**document.xml** ** s3 - find ""<w:rFonts w:ascii="**
*** important: this method may not always work
