Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice should have own "LibreOfficeFont"


Hi Mirek,

I think a better solution would be to:
a) offer to download and install missing open-source fonts (using
open-source fonts would be an advantage here): quick mockup at

b) replace fonts with fonts the same typeface (serif, sans-serif, mono) and
as similar metrics as possible (this might already be the current way of
doing things)

Good points, and a great idea! However, it would require LibO to keep
some kind of record of known open source fonts somewhere - most likely
locally with links to online sources. That wouldn't be a problem with
commonly known fonts, but I don't know if there is a universal
directory of open source fonts out there - more likely they are
scattered around various sources which makes things a bit more
difficult :(. As a UI/UX suggestion though, I think it's worth looking
into.

Regards,
Ivan.
