Subject RE: errors in writer (formula)
Date Sun, 29 Nov 2015 19:35:52 GMT
Using OpenOffice Math on Windows 10 en_US, the formula "a cdot b + b" seems to have the dot
missing but no problem with the + spacing unless it is a kerning problem on the italic "b".
 If I zoom in very closely, I see that a small dot has been juxtaposed to the "a".

This appears to be a problem with font availability/substitution when Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2
is installed on Windows 7, 8 and Windows 10.

See <https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=124203>.

The workaround is to perform the font substitution described in Comment 4 there.  It seems
to solve both problems described by Howard.
