I'm using Libreoffice 3.3 with Linux.
With Writer i use some templates with fontface Kallos ITC for office work.

This fontface has the styles:
Kallos ITC Book
Kallos ITC Book Italic
Kallos ITC Medium
Kallos ITC Medium Italic
Kallos ITC Bold
Kallos ITC Bold Italic

It seems LibreOffice (LO) does not recognize the different styles of the

Creating a template with text formatted as Kallos ITC Medium and
reopening later or creating a new text document from the template
results in LO setting the font to Kallos ITC Book.
I have always to correct the faulty character formatting by hand.
May be LO does not store the font face information correctly or faulty
reimports the settings.

The bug exists since 2007 in OpenOffice (OO)

No solution was found, but some discussion about how handling complex

LO is a fork of OO is has owned the OO bug.
I reproted the problem in LO bugtracker:

Using complex fonts in business office documents is not rare usage.
But it is a severe problem, if users have always to correct the wrong
character formatting by hand.

In DTP program scribus the fontface Kallos ITC with all styles works fine.

I'd like to use in my business office and support such good product as
LO is (may be with some money in future).

How can the problem be fixed?
And not waiting 3 or 5 years for a fix.

Kind Regards
