Hi. Fonts again. Andale Sans was on my Suse from previous installs (OO) but not in LO on my mac. So My document from Suse LO tries to substitute and mucks it up. It would be a great improvement if, on opening a document with missing fonts, you were advised and told what LO plans to substitute with and given the option to select another font. I have had this behavior with other software and it is a great help. Better still to have the option to include the font in the odt file. If LO is going to be the cross platform office product that makes exchanging documents easy then the subject of handling handling missing fonts should be addressed. Possibly an extension. You open the document, a font can't be found, you are told the proposed substitution, do you want to substitute another from your system or install a free font from the internet (browser opens). For better adoption of LO the user experience needs to be "that was clever", "that was easy", "thats great" and not like the saying about doing business in China "anythings possible, everything is difficult"

Some thoughts anyway, steve
