Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 119188] New: Characters in Glyph for Windows (hieroglyphic transliteration font) are not displaying
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 13:26:50 GMT

             Bug #: 119188
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Characters in Glyph for Windows (hieroglyphic
                    transliteration font) are not displaying
    Classification: Application
           Product: Word processor
           Version: OOo 3.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows Vista
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P3
         Component: formatting

I've been using the Glyph for Windows font to display transliteration
characters in hieroglyphic inscriptions. (Just to be clear, these are not the
hieroglyphs themselves, but characters to transliterate them into Roman
script.)  Some of the characters appear to be in the text, but are invisible on
screen. I.E. when I select them, Write knows that they are in the
transliteration font, but they don't appear on screen, although they are
underlined in red by the spellchecker. I've been able to make some appear by
putting a space in another font before them, and if I select the string and
change the font into Times New Roman, those characters appear on screen. The
characters in the Glyph font causing problems seem to be those overlapping with
the normal alphabet, e.g. r, n, p and t. I've been able to work round the
problem by using Times New Roman in italics, but this is a fairly major bug
when you are trying to prepare an article for submission to the Journal of
Egyptian Archaeology!
