When the Write activity is first started, the font menu is blank and doesn't display the default font. Once you pick a font from the menu, it will start displaying properly.

That is because AbiWord itself assumes there is always a Times New Roman that is selectable.

  • Milestone changed from Untriaged to Trial-2

uwog: I'll consider a simple, temporary fontconfig based workaround, or preferably a simple, one line class fix in write-activity to use a font we ship, for trial 2.

The right thing, of course, is for abiword to use the default sans or default serif font, rather than overspecifying to Times.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed in the rpms of #3121.

The default font is selected based on the information in the 'Normal' template. I've patched the libabiword provided templates in the rpm to default to DejaVu Serif instead of Times New Roman.
