* 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 as NOTABUG([1] & [2]). both of them were closed due to font used by 
created docwere not installed on my device. in both cases dev suggested about missing fonts on my 

 * lo substitutes if the fontis not installed with which documentis created is not found on your 
 * 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)

 * assumed all office fonts are installed(see bug 2), i was lucky here.
 * 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

 * 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 font[4]

 * 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]

 * 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 NOTABUG
 * 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 does not always work
